if anyone is coming from far away and would like to make a weekend of it in Brighton, our letterer (and hopefully bagpiper on the day!) Katy has said that anyone booking the Brighton AirBnB she manages (http://bit.ly/2OdELK0) for that Saturday can also book the Friday or the Sunday for half price, as long as it’s not booked by other guests before you get in touch – email katy@boinggraphics.co.uk and she’ll block the date off

*The Marriage of Njord & Skadi is a new 24-page full colour comic about a woman who came for revenge, but chose a husband…
then chose again!

The giantess Skadi seeks revenge on the gods of Asgard, only to find herself wedded instead to Njord, lord of the seaways.
As grief turns to hope, the two try to build a life together ~ but can opposites attract?
Can even gods and giants overcome the hand life deals us?
Is making do ever enough?

“ Simon Russell’s evocative art perfectly compliments Jon Mason’s lyrical re-telling of this little-known classic of Norse myth. Simultaneously melancholic and cathartic, it’s a tale that lingers long after the final page has been turned, demanding numerous readings.” ~ Tim Pilcher, co-author of How Comics Work

“ A truly beautiful thing. If you have kids in your life learning about Norse history, if you’re a lover of ancient tales or someone who appreciates well made art, do yourself a favour and check this out.” ~ Amy Sutton, Bard & Troubadour/Worthing Storytellers
