Cherry Bomb Comics's Groups


Cherry Bomb Comics's Page

Cherry Bomb Comics is Melissa & Tui. Cherry Bomb is based in Auckland, New Zealand (though Melissa now lives in London, so there is a UK offshoot!).

We distro graphic novels, comix and zines made for, by and about women, queers, people of colour, punx and dissidents.

We also run workshops & discussions on comics & zines, and organise events, gigs & do stalls at zine fests, both in London & Auckland.

For about 4 years Cherry Bomb was a physical shop in Auckland, but once we began moving countries and changing our lives we decided to close the shop space. We now sell our wares on our online shop www.cherrybombcomics.co.nz/shop, and at zine fests & gigs.

Great. It looks like we may need to do another print run at this rate! What address do I need to send copies to and when do you need them by? Hey, we should meet up when I'm in Auckland in Dec.
