Welcome to the Orbital News Digest! Here are the latest NEWS and EVENTS from Orbital Comics, links to interesting things we found this week, and a full list of THIS WEEK’S NEW COMICS (at the bottom).


Your Days Are Numbered magazine is taking over the Orbital Gallery from July 5 to 16, with an exhibition of original artwork and prints of work that’s been featured in the magazine as well as pieces made especially for the show from artists such as BONEFACE, Gustavo Duarte, Gilbert Hernandez, David Ziggy Greene, Michael Parkin, Shaky Kane, Tom Scioli, Lord Hurk, Julian Hanshaw, Caspar Newbolt, Ed Piskor, & SNUB. To kick things off we’ll be hosting a launch party on Friday July 4, featuring a signing with David Quantick and Shaky Kane from 6pm.

In a very special London event, Steve Rude will be conducting a life-drawing class and demonstration here at Orbital Comics on Wednesday, July 16 from 7.30pm. These tickets *will* sell out fast, so if you’re planning to come then buy them now … Don’t miss the opportunity to learn directly from The Dude and see him in action during this rare London stop-over! Book your ticket here.

Blood and Roses is an ongoing series of drawings and paintings by comic creator Sally Jane Thompson, inspired by the magical girl genre. Works that are equal parts bold and delicate use the genre’s kitsch, decorative aesthetic, and ambiguous use of traditionally feminine visual motifs, as a space to play in. They explore representations of female hero narratives, conflict and strength through images featuring lively, soulful characters who seem to have stories to tell. The exhibition will feature the originals of all images created to date at the time, with prints also available.
