Hey there, Orangufans!

We’d just like to remind you of the two exciting new releases we’ve got coming out this month.

First up is Unsworn #1, a thrillin tale of sword and sorcery by our very own David Wynne (Hypergirl, Spacescape). Unsworn #1 will be available at the Orang Utan Comics stand at London Super Comic Con which runs from the 25th to 27th of August at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. Find out more and buy tickets here.

And speaking of LSCC, we’d also like to remind you that the Celebrating 10 Years Of Orang Utan Comics panel is on Friday 25th of August there at 2:15pm in Panel Room 3. RSVP to our event page here.

Secondly, we’re also releasing our new anthology celebrating ten years of OUC, The Return Of The Son Of Eleventh Hour. We’ll have that on sale at the OUC stand at LSCC, but those of you who can’t make it to the show can pre-order their copy on Amazon now. You can find links to pre-order the book from all of Amazon’s international sites on the Markosia website here.

PRE-ORDER NOW – The Return of the Son of Eleventh Hour

covers_new.inddCelebrating 10 Years Of Orang Utan Comics!

It’s Orang Utan Comics’ tenth anniversary and we’re having a party…and you’re all invited!

However, so are space pirates, dragons, Vikings, extra-humans, vampires, axe murdering cheerleaders, werewolves, Boadicca, more vampires, a super hero, outlaws, a gelatinous cube, a doom laden message from the future and a whole cast of weird and wonderful characters.

It’s going to be quite a party.

The Return Of The Son Of Eleventh Hour features eighteen stories from the past, present and, quite possibly, the future of Orang Utan Comics. It all kicks off with a brand new prologue to The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley and ends with a rarely seen Hero: 9 to 5 short. It’s been ten years and OUC are still making comics for a strange new world.

Available to pre-order now on Amazon worldwide, The Return Of The Son Of Eleventh Hour is the anthology that quite literally has something for everyone!

Words On A Wall – OUT NOW!

covers_new.inddMonsters, cryogenics, relationships, religion, war, dragons, cannibalism, angels, demons, space exploration, aliens, beans, eyes, traffic cones, gods, Chicago, pot plants, robots, a dive bar on Mars, goblins, heart break, July, cake, bees, geese, peacock flavour crisps and time travel are just some of the things you’ll find in this eclectic collection of flash fiction and poetry.

Originally written for the Elephant Words website where writers are challenged to produce a new short piece of writing each week inspired by a picture posted to the site, this series of short stories, scenes and poems charts the musings and preoccupations of award winning writer, Ian Sharman.

“Writing for Elephant Words gave me the freedom to experiment with my writing, play with words, try new things and really stretch myself,” commented Ian.

At times incredibly dark and deeply personal but often very, very silly, Words On A Wall is available now from Markosia.

London Super Comic Con!

LSCC 2016 floor plan OUC

Here’s where to find Orang Utan Comics at London Super Comic Con on the 20th and 21st of February!

We’re at Booth B11, but we know from previous years that a booth smack bang in the middle of the show floor is surprisingly hard to find, so here’s a plan of the venue on which the location of our booth has been subtly highlighted.

You’ll also be able to find Ian Sharman and Holly Rose at the Ray Gunn & Starburst panel at 4pm in Panel Room 3 on Saturday 20th February.

Ray Gunn & Starburst: An Adventure Through Kickstarter

Saturday 20th March, 4-5pm, Panel Room 3, London Super Comic Con

Nic Papaconstantinou (of the We Have Issues podcast) interviews the cast and crew of sci-fi/comedy audio series The Adventures of Ray Gunn & Starburst. Writer/director Holly Rose will be answering questions alongside the show’s stars, Dominic Westerland, Georgia Humphrey, Ian Sharman and Alyson Leeds. Find out how they successfully Kickstarted the series which recently received a glowing 9/10 review from Starburst magazine.

You can find the Facebook event page for the panel here.

We’ll be selling copies of Ray Gunn & Starburst on CD, which includes the exclusive to CD outtake reel, at the booth and you can also listen before you buy.

As usual Hypergirl and Spacescape artist, David Wynne, will be sketching all weekend and we’ll have the usual assortment of awesome graphic novels on sale, including the new editions of both Hero: 9 to 5 books and paperback editions of Alpha Gods: Betrayal and The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley.
