Just So Happens Launch party
Fumio Obata is a comic book author and visual artist who makes absolutely stunning work and who we here at Gosh! are huge fans of. His comics are a visual mish-mash of manga and Bande Dessinée styles, with the frequent theme of cultural differences, and his zines were the insider tip-off at Thought Bubble 2012. Jonathan Cape have snapped him up quickly for his UK debut graphic novel, Just So Happens.
If this tickles your fancy, you should probably make it down to the launch party for Just So Happens, taking place on Friday, the 7th of February, from 7pm until 9pm. There will be booze as usual, as well as Fumio himself signing copies.
