Hey -News From Karen Rubins

News from Karen Rubins...

Dear All,

Time for a springtime update on what's going on in my world of comics!

Daniel Hartwell and I are making more of those spooky horror strips for The Phoenix – now under the title of The Shivers. Our latest is GHOUL BUS, in issue 114, about a bad boy and an even badder bus. Coming up very soon, so keep your eyes peeled, will be SWEET TOOTH, where people start acting very strangely after a new sweet shop opens in town...
Previous Shivers can be found in issues 83, 89, and 95.

This year I am running no less than twenty-one comics workshops over the month of April as part of CityRead London. CityRead London aims to get all Londoners reading the same book, this year both books are WW1 themed to coincide with the centenary of the start of the war. My comics workshops will be focusing on propaganda posters.

"Your Country Needs You ... To Make Comics!" is for children aged 8 – 12 and workshops are happening all over London. Please check my website calendar for all the details, and look on the CityRead website for more events and to search for local events to you.

There is also a blog post up on the Forbidden Planet Blog with more info about the workshops.


I will have a table at both MCM London in May and the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in October. If you're at either of those, please stop by and say hello!
