Aaron Losty Brings Plough Man and Blaze Beyond The Pale to TBubs

Aaron Losty is a cartoonist based in Ireland whose recent works include The Last Scarecrow, The Waves That Break, and The Old Spot. But he is bringing two new projects to Thought Bubble tomorrow. Plough Man and Blaze Beyond The Pale, both previewed below…

 

 

Ploughman by Aaron Losty, Dan Schkade, Artyom Tucović, Adam Gorham, Chris Shehan, Lianak Kangas and Dani. Ploughman is an Irish Fantasy Noir Comic. 46 pages following the tale of an outlander who has mysteriously crash-landed in the Irish countryside. Agent 5 only has four days left to signal his homeland of Hy-Brasil for rescue, if he can't he'll be trapped in Ireland forever. With the help of Fae Folk and a band of locals, Agent 5 desperately tries to find the emergency signaller he lost in the crash. But not everyone he asks for help is his friend and not everyone he deems an enemy is against him. Will he be able to signal home?

Blaze Beyond The Pale by Aaron Losty with Becca Carey is a coming-of-age drama about Friendship, Fear and Finglas. The story follows teenaged Willo and Harry on their last night of banter together before they part ways for college. But their night is soon overshadowed by a series of fires that are breaking out across Finglas. As the night unfolds and the fires continue, Willo and Harry grow increasingly worried that the fires are linked to them. The night soon unravels and their paranoia rises as more questions are asked of their relationship and their hometown.

Thought Bubble is the UK's largest comic art festival; a week-long celebration of comics, illustration, animation, and more that culminates in this weekend's comic convention. Focused on those who create comic books, specifically the artists, and the writers, it is especially supportive of small press. The festival was founded in 2007 by Yorkshire artist, Lisa Wood, also known as Tula Lotay, and was organised as part of the Leeds International Film Festival to raise the profile of comics in the area. The first Thought Bubble was held on Saturday, 10 November 2007 in the basement of Leeds Town Hall and was attended by a couple of hundred people, but has grown a little since then. The convention originally ran throughout Leeds but, in 2019, due to issues with Leeds City Council and the need for more space, the convention moved to nearby Harrogate. And earlier this year, Lisa Wood stepped down from the role of director to be taken by Travelling Man's Nabil Homsi. This week's events are already underway and the convention begins on Saturday the 12th of November until Sunday the 13th of November. Bleeding Cool will be reporting from the show all weekend long. Do feel free to say hi!
