Keith Page signing at Gosh comics

Just a reminder that this is happening today...

News from Gosh comics that artist Keith Page will be signing copies of 'The lad himself' on Saturday 16th September 2023

Gosh say...

It's the lad himself! From Stephen Walsh and Keith Page comes the story of the life of Tony Hancock. Celebrating its release next month, we're happy to welcome artist Keith Page to the shop for a signing on Saturday 16th September 2023, from 1-2pm.

Hancock: The Lad Himself is the biopic of the titular comedian Tony Hancock that provides an earnest and attentive exploration into the British legend. Here are a few words from Publisher B7 Comics:

Tony Hancock – The Lad Himself tells the story of the legendary comedian in words, pictures, and not without a few interruptions from The Lad Himself, who proves to be a little infuriated at how his story is told… as those who know and love his work would fully expect! 

Tony Hancock somehow seems a natural subject for a comic – and, of course, he’s been in them before. At the height of his television fame, he appeared in Britain’s top-selling weekly, Film Fun. Since his death, he’s been the subject of biographies, radio dramas, and even a couple of television films. With the advent of satellite TV and DVD, he seems to be everywhere.

This funny, powerful and poignant graphic novel charts the life of the often troubled comedian with searing honesty but great affection – with Hancock contributing acerbic commentary in the telling. It’s a unique approach to recounting Hancock’s life story – as you would expect when dealing with such an extraordinary talent, whose enduring appeal is testament to his comedy genius.

Page will be signing copies here at the shop on Saturday 16th September, from 1-2pm. You can pre-order a signed copy for mail-order or collection from our website here.
