Thought Bubble Debut: The Girl And The Glim By India Swift And Michael Doig

We've been taking a look at new books and comics coming out at the upcoming Thought Bubble Comics Festival, a week-long celebration of creativity and comics that takes place in Leeds in the north of England. The festival culminates in a weekend-long comic con on September 23rd-24th. Taking over a fair part of the city across a number of venues, the event always includes the big splash con party and a smorgasbord of incredible comics and creativity in every corner you can find.

The Girl and the Glim by India Swift, Michael Doig, Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou and JP Jordan published as DoigSwift is a graphic novella beginning a larger narrative.

13 year old Bridgette is nervous enough about her family's move to Fort Harbour – but when an unexpected arrival from the sky coincides with her own, it makes finding friends at her new school even trickier than she feared.

The Girl and the Glim: Book one tells the first part of a larger story that deals with how fear can bring people together in a positive way. It's also the first long form comic made by India Swift and Michael Doig, with the efforts of Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou and JP Jordan. We're excited to finally debut the book and share it with you at Thought Bubble Festival!
