Book one of Solipsistic Pop will be officially launched at the Comica Comiket at the ICA on November 8th.
The stall will feature copies of the book and a selection of work by the contributors. Most contributors will be there on the day to sign books. The Comiket will be open between 1pm and 6pm.
A post-launch party will take place in the ICA bar from 7.30pm until closing. There will be live drawing and DJ sets from contributors during the night.
News on how you can pick up copies of Solipsistic Pop after the launch will be available here later that week.
We hope to see you there!

Alex Fitch, presenter of Panel Borders, interviews four Solipsistic Pop contributors for London’s Resonance FM today at 5pm (GMT). Listen live here. A longer version of the interview (as a podcast) will be available here after the broadcast.
Stephen Collins, Matthew Sheret, Julia Scheele and Tom Humberstone talk about the origins of the anthology, the reasons for writing a manifesto, the state of the British comics scene, the difference between the alternative comic scene in North America compared to the UK, mainstream acceptance (or lack thereof) of the comicbook artform, and the future of print.
