Small Press Day 2019 | Saturday 13th July

It’s that time again! Small Press Day returns for it’s fourth year running and this amazing celebration of DIY comics promises to be the best ever here at Orbital.

Small Press Day is a yearly event that takes place in comic and book stores all over the country (and now even internationally in some shops!) to celebrate all the wonderful independent comics and zines that exist, the brilliant artists and writers that created them and the magical world of self-publishing.

This year, Small Press Day will be taking place on Saturday 13th July, kicking off at 11.30am, and we have invited an incredible array of talent to join us throughout the day. They will be signing comics, drawing comics and overall having fun with comics! Here’s the rundown of how the day is scheduled:

11:30 to 13:30


14:00 to 16:00


16:30 to 18:30


As usual, we will be collaborating with Gosh! Comics to bring you a “pass-the-panel” zine made on the day amongst our creator guests at both stores. This year, we are also joining forces with Broken Frontier to bring you live updates of this comic in the making throughout the day! Keep your eye on this space to catch the magic happen! It will also be available physically, for free, on the following new comics day.

In a new tradition at Orbital Comics, we asked all of our guests to pick 5 songs to keep them company throughout their time at the shop. We collated all of these songs into playlists on Spotify! Get excited for the day and check out the soundtrack of Small Press Day 2019 at Orbital Comics below!!!
