Decadence is a comic anthology and collective that publish science fiction stories. Their comics feature psychedelic altered states and dystopian visions. Futures and alternative realities are projected while an awareness of the past and present are retained. Stories break down reality and open up possibilities for further interpretations of the nature of the Cosmos and our existence within it.
Breakdown Press is a comics publisher based in London, UK, dedicated to publishing the very best in comics art, whether the cutting edge work of new cartoonists or undiscovered classics of the past.
Safari Festival is a celebration of the new wave of alternative and art comics from the UK and beyond. Taking place over one Saturday at the end of August, the festival is an opportunity for a curated group of cartoonists and publishers to exhibit and sell their artwork, prints and, primarily, comics, and for attendees to experience the best of UK comics’ avant-garde. The artists exhibiting have been selected for their innovative, fearless, diverse approaches to making comics; approaches to cartooning that Safari intends to champion.
The festival will be free to attend, and will take place at Studio 2, the Shoreditch gallery space of London-based creative agency, Protein.
