From the absurdly humorous to the poetic, 17×23 Showcase is your introduction to the future of British comics. Five artists were each given 10 pages to tell an original story in Nobrow’s celebrated 17×23 format, and the results are unmissable.
The first anthology of its kind in the UK, the 17×23 Showcase will feature the best up-and-comers from the UK comics scene, giving them each 10 pages to spin their fledgling yarns. The cover of this first issue was designed by the author of the 2012 Comica festival poster, Isaac Lenkiewicz, who uses his contribution to tell the enrapturing tale of Broadbright, the prodigal son of the Moon. The book also includes stories from Megaskull creator Kyle Platts, whose crass sense of humour and radioactive colour schemes will rock your comics world, Henry McCauseland, whose scratchy line is reminiscent of art-cartoonist extraordinaire C.F., surreal fantasist Nick Sheehy aka ‘Showchicken’ and the unmistakable Joe Kessler, Nobrow team member and the cartoonist behind Mwara.
Get your hands on the latest iteration of the series that launched Luke Pearson’s career in all its bright and beautiful glory. Join us for the maiden voyages of these talented young artists as we showcase their talents for yet another generation of cartoonists.
