ShortBox May 2016


We're proud and excited to launch ShortBox, a new, independent, quarterly comics box (for further information, please read this). The limited, inaugural edition of the box is now available to purchase, and contains 5 comic books, an A4 print, a sticker sheet, and a yearbook-style contributors credit sheet. A reminder that ShortBox is not a subscription -buying this does not commit you to anything else-, but a regular, one-off purchase.

UPDATE: May 2016's ShortBox is now sold out,  but you can sign up to the reserves list and our mailing list below. Thank you to everyone who has supported this first Box!

Details of each book and item to be found in May's ShortBox are as follows: 


Phantom by Aatmaja Pandya: An exploration of place, identity, gentrification, and belonging. Black and white, 38 pages. 


Light OCD by Mathilde Van Gheluwe: A journey through habits and behaviours both physical and mental. Black and white, 20 pages. Screen printed pink or purple covers- you'll receive either one or the other (interior content is the same). Exclusive to ShortBox, which means this comic won't be available anywhere else- copies have been produced for the box only.


Neebo by Violaine Briat:  Fantasy- Jonas finds himself in constant battle to retain his pet turtle Neebo, but is there something deeper at work? Landscape format 17.5cm x 12cm, 58 pages, full colour. Includes Neebo short story- 48 pages, Transition short story- 5 pages, and additional illustrations and sketches.


Alcathoe and the Giant Girl by Isaac Lenkiewicz:  The residents of Plum Town know better than to get on the wrong side of the witch in the woods, Alcathoe, but one mother and daughter decide to take her on. The newest comic from Isaac Lenkiewicz debuts here with a special ShortBox cover (will go on wider release in mid-June with a' regular' cover). Riso print, blue and white, 30 pages.


Kupala by Kaska Gazdowna and Kaska Klas: Kupala, the summer solstice feast, is one of few nights when magic can interfere with reality. Deriving from Slavic mythology, this folk horror sees a young boy and girl fall in love over the years, but all is not as it seems. Black and white, 24 pages.


Bunny Cat sticker sheet by Seo Kim:  1 individually packaged sheet holding 10 stickers of cute and melancholy animals.


ShortBox A4 limited edition, numbered print by Michael DeForge A toothy, and sharp print in inimitable DeForge style. A ShortBox exclusive- created especially for this inaugural box and the only place to get your hands on one.


Books will be packaged together in tissue paper to protect from corner bumping. Prints are packaged separately in a plastic sleeve and placed flat on the bottom of the box.
