On Wednesday March 5th, Breakdown Press will be guest speakers at Process, a monthly workshop and discussion group for aspiring cartoonists. Joe Kessler, Antoine Cossé, Lando and Zoë Taylor will each be in attendance discussing their work, and Tom and Simon of Breakdown will be there representing the editorial and publishing side of things. The event takes place at Gosh! London and starts at 7pm. You can find more information about Process and the event here.
“J.1137 successfully demonstrates the diverse potential of the comics form, as Cossé’s fearless style explores and expands upon the accepted norms of the medium.” - Jessica Lee
The Klaus merchandise you’ve been clamouring for is here!

Pre-orders will ship on February 4th, 2014.
So after CAB we came home and went to Thought Bubble, but we didn’t take any photos… Thanks to Oliver East and Gareth Brookes though for championing us all weekend and thanks to everyone that bought the books at Thought Bubble!
Then shortly after we got back it was on to our London launch party at Gosh!
Joe drew on the window.
We had prints and art from Windowpane 2 and J.1137 on the walls.
Joe and Antoine signed.
The masses were appeased.
Then we went to the pub and good time was had by all.
Here’s Joe with Lando of Decadence Comics, whose collected works are being published by ourselves as Gardens of Glass next year.
Thanks again to everyone who came to visit us at CAB, Thought Bubble and Gosh! and thanks for all the kindness and support we’ve received this year! We have tons more stuff coming out in 2014, so keep yr eyes peeled.

CAB was an incredible festival and we absolutely intend to return next year. Thanks so much to everyone who had kind words to say about our books!
After the festival, Antoine had to fly home, but Hugh Frost, one of the creative geniuses behind Mould Map turned up, so we went partying.
We discovered shuffleboard.
Shuffleboard incited us to get fucking tanked.
Then it was goodbye to NY.
In part 2, England…
