Obviously we love Orang Utans here at Orang Utan Comics and fully back the campaign to end the use of palm oil that’s created by destroying their natural habitat.
We’ve just completed thoroughly updating our website! We hope you enjoy the new look and will take the time to look around and maybe order a few of our books.
Whether your a long time fan or are just discovering us for the first time, we’ve got something for you here at Orang Utan Comics.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you find anything that doesn’t work on the site!
We’ll be at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend, 23rd – 24th September, in the Comixology Marquee in the Millennium Square…at table 103! Ian, David and ‘Olly will be on hand all weekend to sign books, sketch and chat.
This will be our final UK convention this year, but you can catch up with Ian and ‘Olly at Malta Comic Con at the Mediterranean Convention Centre in Valletta on 2nd – 3rd December.
We’ll be announcing our 2018 convention schedule soon.

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.
Just a quick heads up, there’s currently 10% off on Hypergirl and Alpha Gods throw pillow covers in the Orang Utan Comics Society6 store, and free shipping on everything! Yeah, that’s right, throw pillow covers, ‘cos that’s just how we roll around here.
