Small Press Day 2018 – Saturday 7th July

Small Press Day returns for it’s third year and we couldn’t be more excited to take part in this amazing day celebrating everything wonderful about self-published comics and DIY culture.

On Saturday 7th July, we will be having wonderful small press creators joining us all throughout the day. Starting at 11.30am and finishing at 6.30pm, an incredible group of talented artists will be signing, sketching and showcasing all of their beautiful work.

As we have done on previous Small Press Day events, we will be collaborating with Gosh! Comics to create a zine featuring art from every guest at both of our shops!

This year, we asked our guests to choose five songs each to keep them company throughout the day. Putting all of these songs together has created Orbital’s Small Press Day 2018 playlist! You can listen to it on Spotify here. (More songs to come!)

Small Press Day takes part all over the country with any participating comic or bookstore, so make sure to keep this day free to check out all the fantastic events being held over the country supporting something very close to our hearts. Small Press Day promises to be a lot of fun and we hope you are as excited as we are!
