The Thought Bubble Festival begins in Leeds in six days' time with the comic-con side beginning in eleven 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!
The Chimera Factor by Richmond Clements, PJ Woods and Paul Mclaren is published by Unseen Shadows and debuts at Thought Bubble.
Three organisations vying for control. Two women with nothing to lose. One relic of immeasurable power. Winner takes all.
When a crashed World War II plane is discovered in the Antarctic a United Nations covert unit, led by Major Stephanie Connisbee, is sent to investigate. Unbeknownst to Steph another team, headed up by ruthless adventuress, Victoria Sullivan has also been dispatched to the crash site.
Beneath the snow and ice Steph and Victoria discover a relic of mass destruction that should have stayed buried. Now the two mismatched warriors must work together to stop a shadowy organisation from using the relic to plunge the world into chaos. There's just one problem; Steph and Victoria want each other dead and the relic for themselves.
Saving the world has never been messier.
The Unseen Shadows Transmedia Universe is dedicated to expanding the world and characters created in the bestselling novel Fallen Heroes through transmedia storytelling.
"These are not just nice little side stories with no impact on the events surrounding them," Barry Nugent, the founder of Unseen Shadows explains. "The spin-off titles expand and enhance the characters lives and relationships within the novels. It was important to me that these titles can be read, watched and listened to independently of each other and the novels but you will get more insights into the characters by experiencing everything the Unseen Shadows Universe has to offer."
