The PHONOGRAM Preview

Gillen/McKelvie.

Also:

… returned from my local printer yesterday with a couple of surprisingly-heavy boxes full of postcards advertising Phonogram, each one sporting the B-side strip. Now we want to get them into the hands of people.

This is where you come in.

While we’re planning to get the postcards to local comic shops directly, for our initial sending out we’d like to stay true to our punky fanzine roots and get other humans involved.

Basically, do you have a local comic shop you enter regularly? Would you be willing to take a small pile of these lovely /objects d’art/ in and ask the proprietor to have on the counter? Do you wish to join arms in a grand fraternity of Phonogam and chant to our dark and nameless Gods?

If the answers to all of the above are yes, drop me a line at Kieron dot Gillen at Gmail dot com and I’ll get the little parcel in the post to you.

    I read through the first few pages thinking “eh, amusing, nothing I’m going to spend my money on…”. And then I had to read the last 3. Fuck me.

  2. If a suitable opportunity ever provides itself, ask Gillen about a little legal difficulty he had during his sandwich year at
    uni. It gave rise to one of his better early (pre turning pro) pieces.

  3. I fought the law and the lawyer won.

  4. Britain or US?
    Can help if it’s Britain

  5. ‘Twas the US, 96-97, and I believe any and all charges were dropped.

    At least, that’s what he claimed.
