O Panda Gordo is a publishing project established by João Sobral in 2011 and currently based in Glasgow (Scotland, UK).

O Panda Gordo publishes zines, books, and other publications mostly featuring comics and drawings from international artists.

O Panda Gordo also runs a distro which stocks a selection of titles published by other artists and independent publishers.

O Panda Gordo started as an impulsive naive activity, motivated by a fascination and not by an intention. It gradually became a more conscious and critical practice and although it hasn’t lost its exploratory nature, it is now admittedly political – not always in its content but invariably in its form.

The attitude behind O Panda Gordo can be summarised into the following ideas: competition cooperation; growth local structures; separation combination of brain work and manual work; professionalism amateurism; overpricing affordability; profit experimentation.

Subsmissions

O Panda Gordo is a small operation run by one single person with a very tight budget. I can't commit to a lot of editorial projects and so I don't really accept submissions for new publications. Although, if you want to introduce yourself and your work, and have a wee chat, you're more than welcome to get in touch!
