On Friday 12th November, we will be celebrating the launch of Solipsistic Pop 3 with a party in Camden’s Black Heart (NW1 0AP). Entry is £3 and the doors open at 8pm.

This Friday is the launch party of the third Solipsistic Pop comics anthology. Aiming to spotlight the best in the UK’s alternative comics scene the anthology is the brainchild of Tom Humberstone and this volume features contributions from Marc Ellerby, Lizz Lunney, Philippa Rice, David O’Connell, Rob Davis, and many more.

And while there will be comedians, live music, and some sort of dancing, the most important part of this launch will be the free pencil and (more importantly) the “free bag of penny sweets from the Solipsistic Pop Tuckshop” that come with every purchase (while quantities last). Wowzers!

If you can’t make the launch Marc Ellerby is running a competition to win a copy on his website, or you can purchase your own copy here.

Solipsistic Pop is a biannual anthology designed to spotlight the best in alternative Comic art from the UK. The anthology was created by Tom Humberstone who edits and designs each book.

It features diverse, beautiful, twisted and peculiar Comics that you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Comic artists old and new are encouraged to contribute.

Solipsistic Pop provides a support structure and outlet for UK alternative Comic artists.

Each book of Solipsistic Pop is a boutique, tactile product. A bespoke, unique artefact designed to suit the content of each edition with a limited hand-numbered printrun.
