Solipsistic Pop 3 Launch

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

The book will be on sale for £12 and will come with a free bag of penny sweets from the Solipsistic Pop Tuckshop (while stocks last). For maximum enjoyment, you are encouraged to consume your sugary treats while digesting Solipsistic Pop 3.

The fantastic comedians Bec Hill and Terry Saunders will be performing, as will the wonderful MJ Hibbett. We’ll also be joined by DJ Bitter Fingers who’ll see us through to the 12.30 close.

There are plans to teach several comic workshops for children and young adults – run by Solipsistic Pop contributors –  at the end of November/early December to coincide with the launch. The workshops will be run in collaboration with The Ministry Of Stories. More details about this nearer the time.

We hope to see you at the launch!

Solipsistic Pop 2 reviews and coverage

Solipsistic Pop continues to set the bar high for other British comics anthologies, and it seems as though this community of artists is committed to the anthology’s future success.  It’s the rare anthology where I wanted to see more work from virtually everyone included, and that sort of quality and effort reflects the commitment it took to make this such an engaging read”
Rob Clough, The Comics Journal

“This is a carefully considered, lovingly crafted and utterly covetable compendium, a confirmation of the pleasure of comics in printed inks on quality paper stock […] Don’t have any second thoughts about purchasing this”
Paul Gravett

“I loved SP2, it’s brilliant. It’s so beautifully put together and it makes me proud to think all of those artists come from the UK right now!”
Josie Long

“An incredible collection of comic art from some excellent artists […] absolutely head and shoulders above so much of what’s available”
Forbidden Planet International

“Everything about SP2 improves upon the original volume in some way or another. The design is tighter, the content is higher in terms of overall quality, and everything from the cover to the credits page is better, brighter and bolder. Recommended highly, it’s an immensely solid collection that offers an essential look into one of the most underrepresented alternative scenes in the English-speaking comic world today”
Avoid The Future

“A good collection of people who seem on the verge of really hitting their stride with comics, kinda like the early Kramers Ergot books”
Jeffrey Brown

“Like good pop music, all of the comics in the anthology are short – some sweet, some bittersweet but all with great force […] In an age of free-digital, it’s of importance that a paid-analog thing impresses itself on your hands. Solipsistic Pop gets this right. Very right”
Ben Gwalchmai

“A British version of David Eggers’ McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern to showcase our best comic artists”
The Independent

“I’m a lover of anthologies, and will be the first to admit, most of ’em are more miss than hit. This puppy is almost all hit”
Top Shelf
