Thanks to Mike Medaglia and Mark Haylock for organising the first Comic Gosh!p book club meeting at Gosh! Comics in Soho. And to David O’Connell for presenting his comic, Tozo, as the first book of discussion, along with Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen.
We had a good discussion of both books, and it was great having David there to be able to answer questions about his comic, which he’s been working on for five years. (You can see some of my Tozo fan art here.) Dave Gibbons recorded a video for us, talking about Watchmen and then trailing off as he got absorbed in reading Tozo (nice segue into the other Dave’s talk there…). Here’s a doodle I made of the whole group.
If you’re on Facebook, you can join the secret Comics Gosh¡p group and the next meeting will take place on 9 Nov, discussing Batman: Year One, written by Frank Miller, illustrated by David Mazzucchelli, coloured by Richmond Lewis, lettered by Todd Klein and Hemlock by Josceline Fenton.
