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.

Come along, say hello, give us drinks and buy our stuff!

Pre-Order Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus and The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley NOW!


The creative minds at Orang Utan Comics have teamed up with UK graphic novel publishing power house Markosia to bring you two thrilling new books in time for the London Super Comic Con.

In Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus the creative team of Ian Sharman, David Gray and Yel Zamor return us to a world where the rich can afford the best in super hero protection, but the poor have to get by with the heroic equivalent of third party, fire and theft. The “Lone Knight” returns from the pages of Hero: 9 to 5, but how will The Loner and the finest men and women that publicly funded super hero protection can supply cope when a mysterious figure leaves a trail of unconnected corpses in his wake? How will a young hero deal with the loss of his mentor? And, more importantly, how will Thunder Woman get her groceries when she runs into Lash Lady at the store? In a world where being a super hero is just another job, what happens when there’s nobody left alive to pay the bill? Quietus – some men just want to watch the world die.

Zakk Ridley is just your average smuggler and rogue until he and his robotic partner, Dan, get caught up in an intergalactic conspiracy. Zakk dreams of an easy life roaming the galaxy and making a fast buck or two, but as they say, in space no one can hear you dream… The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley is written by Orang Utan Comics’ founders Ian Sharman (Alpha Gods/Hero: 9 to 5) and Pete Rogers (The Interactives) with stunning fully painted art by Ewan McLaughlin.

Those who’ve been following the fortunes of Orang Utan Comics will know that these two books have been a long time coming,” said Hero: 9 to 5 and Zakk Ridley writer, Ian Sharman. “2013 was something of a roller coaster year for me and it feels exceptionally satisfying to be starting 2014 with the launch of two books I’ve been looking forward to getting into people’s hands for years.” Orang Utan Comics have plans for more releases throughout the year, including a hardback collection of Alpha Gods: Betrayal, a series that should also be seeing its animated debut later in the year, and the first print collection of their ongoing web comic series, Spacescape.

The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley and Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus are both now available to pre-order from the Orang Utan Comics online store. Both books will be released at London Super Comic Con on 15th-16th March 2014 at the Excel Centre in London, and there are options to pre-order to pick up at the convention and to pre-order for mail order delivery after the show. All mail ordered books will be shipped signed by writer Ian Sharman, who will be on hand to personally sign books at LSCC. Both books are offered at special LSCC discount prices. The regular price for The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley is £17.99 but you can get this 100 page, full colour hardback for just £15. The regular price for Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus is £11.99 but you can get this 96 page, full colour softcover for just £10.
