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.

Also, the local comic book shop Calamity Comics are opening their doors for the first time to the small press, and will be dedicating some shelf space to underground comix, so go along and show them your work.
