We’re back! Our fortnightly online Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw returns this Thursday, January 14th with an Idiot Corpse anthology special! As usual we start at 7.30pm UK time on Twitter. 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.

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 (GMT), 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!
This time we’re focusing on Idiot Corpse, an anthology comic with work from three of our regular Drink and Draw faces. Joining us this week as guest artists are Aled Lies, Dylan Wyn Owen and Shehzad Ahmad. Idiot Corpse is an experimental exercise in comics with the following premise…
They each choose 8 random subjects. Mix them all up and take back 8 per artist.
They each write a story in secret that must include all 8 no matter what they are…
The artists are randomly assigned each other’s stories to illustrate.
They work in isolation and no one sees the results until completed. Now, you see it too. Our Idiot Corpse.
Look for a review of the anthology tomorrow at Broken Frontier! Buy Idiot Corpse online here.
