Opportunity, from Karrie Fransman

“The Internship is essentially a training programme for 21-25 year olds who are interested in careers in comics, publishing, arts education or illustration. Think of it like a 2-day a week school in comics!”

Says Karrie. Check it out here and check out Karrie’s work here.

Cafe Royal Subscriptions!

Dear All,

We have re-introduced our subscription service. Last time it was very popular. Numbers are limited [as are the print runs of our titles]. We try to split our print runs fairly evenly between our shop, book fairs, subscriptions and distribution. subscriptions are strictly first-come-first-served.

We offer two types of subscription. One is a zine-only subscription, for 5 or 10 titles. The other is a monetary subscription, so you remain subscribed until the amount you submit has gone. Prices include reduced rate [-20%] publications and priority shipping, also reduced. Subscriptions can be bought as gifts and sent to an alternative address.
