Warning, comics fans! Clear your diaries, ’cause for the next month we have a series of events lined up that you won’t want to miss.

First of all, over the Halloween weekend (October 30th – 31st) we will be hosting the Amazing Orbital Costume Contest. Simply turn up dressed as your favourite comic book hero, villain, anti-hero or anti-villain(?), and get your photograph taken by an Orbital staff member for your chance to win amazing prizes, including a spectacular set of Batman action figures!

Orbital staff will be cunningly disguised as Batman villains, so should be easy to spot!

Then, starting on Sunday October 31st and running until November 30th, Orbital is very proud to be hosting an exhibition of the winning entry and runners up from the Observer Graphic Short Story Prize.

This is the fourth year that the prize has been run, but will be the first time that the winning entries have been exhibited publicly, so will be a fantastic opportunity to see work from the very best up-and-coming British cartoonists.

And finally, on Saturday November 6th we are very excited to present an exclusive signing with the inimitable J.H. Williams III. This will be his only signing event in the UK so is absolutely not to be missed by fans of his stellar work on books such as Promethea, Desolation Jones and the recently collected Batwoman.

He will be signing from 3pm to 5pm so make sure you arrive early to avoid disappointment!
