SLCZF WEEK! Your favourite online comics social is back! Our fortnightly Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw returns this Thursday, July 7th with a special night celebrating SLCZF (the South London Comic & Zine Fair) taking place this Sunday July 10th. You can find out more about the event in our interview with the SLCZF team here at this week.
Not only do our online D&Ds keep all those who would meet at The King’s Arms in Soho, London every month (in those fondly remembered pre-March 2020 days) in regular contact, they also allow us to expand our reach for the event to a more global audience.

We’ll be starting this week at 7.15pm to give everyone taking part on Twitter the opportunity to introduce themselves to each other as we look to continue fostering an even stronger sense of community. Drawing rounds begin at 7.30pm UK time as usual.
So, once again if you’re joining us online, here are the “rules”…
We’re using our regular pub format, adapted for a digital platform. So if you’ve never attended one of our monthly sessions this is how it will work. Our guest artists will each choose a drawing theme for three sessions across the evening. We’ll post each of these prompts with the hashtag #GoshBFDD in three batches at 7.30pm (UK time), 8.15pm and 9.00pm from both the Gosh! Comics Twitter account and the Broken Frontier Twitter account. You have 30 minutes to draw something fitting that theme, after which we’ll spend 15 minutes picking a winner before the next round begins. Don’t forget to post your drawings with the #GoshBFDD hashtag so everyone can see and join in. And also so we can easily retweet!
Let’s meet our guest artists…
Hannah Lee Miller is a small press comics creator responsible for the graphic medicine short comics Dementia Dad and Ambiguous Loss. Hannah is also one of the SLCZF organising team.
Nancy ArtMusic will be looking after the Communal Table at SLCZF where you can find copies of her minicomic Hair.
