Thought Bubble Debut: Gender-Flipped 'Fem Fatales' For A Good Cause

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.

Such as Fem Fatales: A gender-flipped anthology for a good cause from Fat Polly's Comics.

Welcome to a world without the Y chromosome… And say hello to all the characters that could have been!

Fem Fatales is an art & comics anthology, inviting creators to work on gender-flipped versions of their favourite characters from comics, film, books, cartoons, games and other media: We've taken to Kickstarter to fund the project, with fun rewards like copies of the comic, hardcover deluxe editions, zines, activity books and more fun!

Proceeds from the project will be donated to Refuge projects. You can find Fat Polly's Comics at table 60 in the Cookridge Street Marquee this weekend at Thought Bubble to debut the work — and recruit contributors!
