Over The Line: Launched, Available and Gearing Up for Gosh

Over The Line: An Introduction to Poetry Comics, edited by Chrissy Williams and Tom Humberstone, is out now and available via our site. Bookshops should be able to order it in from Thursday.

One of our two launch events has been and gone - wine, short readings and talks were laid on at the Poetry Cafe last Thursday, accompanying an exhibition of pages from the book that will run in the cafe until 31st October.

The second launch event will take place on 17th September at Gosh Comics in London, from 7pm, and a whole swathe of the contributing writers and artists will be in attendance.

If you're planning on coming and want to buy any of our other books directly from us, just let us know via email and we'll bring some along!


  1. Dear Jon

    I think that poetry comics is rather an interesting concept which I hope takes off.

    Best wishes from Simon R. Gladdish

  2. Thanks Simon! It's been a fascinating topic to explore, both as a participant in Chrissy's workshops, and as a publisher, watching the process unfold with Tom and Chrissy. Such a variety of takes on the theme.


What say you?
