thoughtbubblelogo2013Here’s my fourth countdown to Thought Bubble 2013…I can not believe the con is nearly here and I have not sorted anything out for next week. In fact why am I doing a bloody countdown when I have so much left to do!

Before I start make sure you have a read of our review of the the Thought Bubble 2013 Anthology…it’s stellar!

Commissions & Signings News

I thought given the amount of commissions and signing that go on at Thought Bubble it might we worth trying to collect a few of them here for you to check out. If you doing any commissions or signings yourself then drop me a line and I’ll see about giving you a mention here

  • dani abram  will be open A5 commissions for the first time at Thought Bubble. She will also have a folder of full pieces for sale. if you want to order some sketches before the show you can order them from Dani’s website for the bargain price of £5.00. You can find Dani in the Allied London Hall at the Razarhawk table.

  • Leah Moore and John Reppion will be signing and selling copies of Sherlock Holmes – The Liverpool Demon (hopefully with some little special added extras) on the Saturday the 23rd of November.You can find the guys  in the Royal Armouries Hall on Table 28 (Signing Table C) from 13:55 until 15:25. I’m a big fan of Mr Holmes so I daresay I may swing by and pick up a copy.

Launch Comic of the Day – Exit Generation

Earlier this week Sam Read got in contact to give me the low down on his comic series ”Exit Generation’ which is launching at Thought Bubble with issue 1. You will be able to pick up physical copies of the comic at the festival or can pick it up in a digital format.

It’s 2055 and Jack is bored.

20 years ago most of Earth’s population abandoned the planet in search of a less crowded place to live. But rather than descend into chaos, the world they left became a paradise, free from poverty, war and crime.

In this utopia Jack spends his days hanging out with his friend Mo, and obsessing over action movies and punk records, longing for some real excitement. But then a bunch of extra-terrestrial visitors arrive, and Jack’s wish is granted…

Exit Generation is a four part series telling the tale of one boy’s search for purpose against a backdrop of space aliens, big firearms and punk rock.
