The Thought Bubble Festival begins in Leeds in nine days' time with the comic-con side beginning in thirteen days. Bleeding Cool will be there and there will be plenty of comic books old and new to pick up.
We're going to try and take a look at some of the comics appearing for the first time at the show. If you are exhibiting at Thought Bubble and would like to preview something you are debuting there, please let us know!
And first we have Ambulance #1 by Erato Kondyli and George Kambadais of The Double Life Of Miranda Turner and Grave Lilies with a new comic book series…
Flo's working for an evil corporation named Eve Eel Co, who takes people with powers prisoners and use them for science. She hates her job. She just can't stand there and watch all these wonderful people walking through her inside the building of Eve Eel Co and disappear! So she decided to do something for it and one day, she calls Hope and Raul, her co-workers and friends, and she quits with a bang! Operation Unadon is a go!
The Thought Bubble Festival is the UK's largest event of its kind – an annual celebration of sequential art in all its forms, including everything from superhero comics to independent and small-press artists and writers.
Formed in 2007 as a non-profit-making organisation dedicated to promoting comics, graphic novels, and animation as an important national and international cultural art-form. Now in its 11th year, the festival has been extended over a full week with a jam-packed programme of events at a variety of venues across the city. Their aim is to cater to both long-time comic book fans and those who have never picked up a graphic novel before.
Bleeding Cool will be there, represented by Rich Johnston, Joe Glass and Olly MacNamee. Feel free to say hello!
