h2g2's very own Spimcoot has published his first full-length graphic novel, Eustace. And you're invited to the book signing at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore.


6 – 7pm, Thursday March 7th, 2013
Forbidden Planet London Megastore
179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR


Spimcoot, known in some circles as Steven Harris, has been an h2g2 researcher since 4th August, 2001. His web comic Eustace first appeared in the h2g2 Post. Spimcoot is also the author of a second Post web comic series, Paper Cuts.

The graphic novel Eustace, described as a "blackly comic and surreal tale" will be launched at an invitation-only event at Waterstones in London on Friday 1st March 2013.

Congratulations, Spimcoot!

Happy Nerd

Anyone who was at the meet last year might have seen some early proofs of the book that Spimcoot had on him, they were very, very good.

I've also had occasion recently to re-read all of Eustace and the Paper Cuts series, and I can confidently say that if you haven't, you should!

smiley - ok
Spimcoot is one of my favourite artists.
One of his cartoons has graced my homepage
for the past decade. I am so pleased that now
a wider audience can get to appreciate his
flowing natural style and grounded realism.

PS:
I have inquired at the site for a quote
on shipping to Canada via post with a
conversion to Canadian currency.

As you've probably noticed, we're raising a Martini and toasting the success of one of our own:

http://www.h2g2.com/entry/A87785725

Additionally to the signing that's forthcoming, there's a rather exclusive launch party this week, and a couple of us have managed to snaffle some invitations! We'll be going along with two things in mind, the first being to support Spimcoot, a Researcher for the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (Earth Edition) and the second to make sure that everyone else there know who we are, and what we're about.

Yes, alcohol *will* be involved*.



*read next week's Post to see what happens!

Spimmmy! Yay!
Say listen, Bud, your publisher still hasn't replied to my online
order-page inquiry about shipping and payment methods for Canada.
They said it might take a day or two but it has been four.
