Small Press Day is a yearly event that takes place all over the country to celebrate indy comics, self-publishing and the DIY culture. This year was no different and at Orbital we had a fantastic selection of artists joining us all throughout the day. It was an absolutely wonderful day and a lot of fun, but sadly it’s over until next year! However, it lives on it spirit here at Orbital. We have an entire bookshelf dedicated to all the beautiful comics that were left behind by our guests. So if you were unable to make it to Small Press Day this year, fear not! You can check out all of the pretty stock in our small press section.
Featuring the work of: Olivia Sullivan, Katie Marland, Luke Matthews, Ryan Jenkyns, Sophie Burrows, Will Powers, Clio Isadora, Ed Stockham, Korinna Mei, Laurel Pettitt, Timothy Winchester, Takayo Akiyama, Becky Howard, John Cei Douglas, Laura Collinson and Barry Flynn.
In addition, we have the collaborative zine that creators from both Gosh! Comics and Orbital worked on throughout the day, Slinging Panels Down. It’s free so make sure to pick it up before it disappears! And on top of that, Small Press Day also marked the release of Broken Frontier’s Small Press Yearbook 2018 and I made you a Mixtape, a new anthology inspired by music put together by the amazing Chibi Shibby, with all profits going to Mind.
