Details on the book and previews will follow over the coming months, but for now we would like to announce that Solipsistic Pop 3 is being built as a UK alternative comic anthology that is accessible and appealing to children and young adults. Inspiration for the book is equal parts RAW, DC Thompson, Panini and McSweeneys. More information soon!

Original artwork from books one and two of Solipsistic Pop will be on display in the Orbital Comics Gallery from May 14. The exhibition will last for two weeks.
There is a private view on the opening night where many artists will be available to talk to. Prints, comics and original artwork will be on sale from the majority of contributors, plus there will be music and refreshments.
We look forward to seeing you there.
This weekend (May 8-9) is the now annual Toronto Comics Art Festival. Held for the second consecutive year in the impressively large and welcoming Toronto Reference Library. It is free to attend, features a wonderful line-up, and has always been one of the best comic festivals I’ve had the pleasure to attend. If you’re in the area, make sure you stop by.
Solipsistic Pop contributors Julia Scheele, Adam Cadwell, Marc Ellerby, Lizz Lunney and Howard Hardiman all have tables at the event and will be armed with copies of Solipsistic Pop 1 and 2. Be sure to grab a copy from them if you haven’t done so already. They will all have new work of their own on sale which will, of course, be worth picking up immediately.
There are also a bunch of exciting comic-related events tied to the festival happening this week. Check the website for more details.
