We are letting our geek flag fly with this week’s Bookstore.
We are celebrating the one, the only GOSH! Comics. GOSH! are veterans in their field selling incredible comics, graphic novels and anything else you could ever dream of related to the comic book genre, for the past 25 years.
It moved to a new home on Berwick Street around 3 years ago, leaving behind it’s Bloomsbury roots in search of the vibrant energy of Soho. Their new store also got a brand new look. The Soho space has something of an industrial feel with large old factory lights and a concrete ceiling. The place is oozing character from the counter tops made out of old desktops to wooden stock shelves, all holding a striking array of comic books and graphic novels; from both well-known and indie names. They even have a section for high design children’s books.
With events coming out of their ears GOSH! is the place to go to engage with your favourite artists and talent previously unknown to you. They are ever the home of one of our publishers; SelfMadeHero, and they hosted super-talent Jeffrey Brown on his UK tour in 2013.
Jeffrey Brown painted an incredible window for them depicting his take on the Star Wars™ universe.
We are big fans of Gosh! and not just because we grew-up watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and reading comic books. We love Gosh because they are experts in their field and you can tell they love what they do the moment you walk in the store. They continue to thrive in a niche section of a declining industry because they are passionate. For that reason, Gosh Comics, we salute you! Keep doing your thing because we can’t get enough!
In their own words:
“Our range of graphic novels is second to none, and we’re always striving to source new and interesting product, whatever the genre. From translated European albums to mainstream superhero antics; vintage children’s books to contemporary graphic fiction; compulsively readable manga to cutting edge small press: we’ve got something for everyone.”
In the words of their fans:
“I got seriously derailed by my visit here, spending 2 hours reading the first few pages of dozens of comics. The selection can’t be beat, and I discovered so many things while here.” Kendall M
“Great comic shop! Very in the know! Exclusive deals directly from the cartoonist! Special events all the time! Something for everyone even if you’ve never read a comic!” Clockwork C.
