Comic Book Carrier Bags

Worlds Apart

Nostalgia and Comics

I was commissioned recently by Kenny Penman from Forbidden Planet International to design carrier bags for their Nostalgia and Comics (Birmingham) and Worlds Apart (Liverpool) comic stores.

I tried to give them a slightly retro comic book / B-movie poster feel, with a nice robot invasion theme linking the two designs together.

Whilst trying to work out which comic to give the Nostalgia and Comics kid, I came across this ace old advert on the Forbidden Planet International blog, drawn by Dean Ormston, and thought it’d be a nice little homage!

Both stores are going with the colourways on the left, with the possibility of printing a limited number of the right hand versions.

Hopefully these will be in use in both of the shops by Christmas.
