Behind the Zines!

The Mysterious Doors of Stanley Halls, Issue 1 & 2 are out now! Available to read online as an e-zine, or free copies are available to collect from our Social Cafe, open Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm.

The great and local comic artist Martin Eden is the mastermind behind these wonderful and playful publications; A series of zines celebrating local inventions in and around town as part of Inventing South Norwood. Funded by Historic England.

It’s all well and good seeing the final product, but we’ve got an exclusive insight into the process that goes into designing this zine. View the gallery of images, right, and get a sneak peak of the zine before it went to print…

Issue 3 is set to release at the beginning of January…

Did you know that Stanley Arts is home to the South London Comic & Zine Fair! Keep your eyes peeled for the annual event that will be appearing on our website soon!
