Like Image Comics, UK’s Thought Bubble festival celebrates sequential art in all its forms and genres. Now, the leading creator-owned publisher is joining forces with the non-profit Thought Bubble organization to celebrate the fifth year of the festival with Thought Bubble Anthology, a collection whose proceeds will go to the charity Banardos.
Thought Bubble Anthology will feature short stories written by Andy Diggle, Stuart Gordon, and Antony Johnston, gorgeous art by Charlie Adlard,Duncan Fegredo, and D’Israeli, in addition to a cover by Becky Cloonan. It will also include the six winners of the Northern Sequential Arts Competition.
“Thought Bubble is delighted to be working with one of our favourite publishers, Image Comics, for our first ever anthology,” said Lisa Wood, Thought Bubble Festival Director. “We are stunned at the support we have received from everyone who has contributed to the comic and hope it is the first of many more to come!”
The Thought Bubble Festival takes place across Leeds from the 14th-20th of November with a massive Comic Con held at the city’s largest convention halls on the 19th and 20th. It is now the UK’s largest festival celebrating comic art in all its wondrous forms.
Thought Bubble Anthology #1 (SEP110389), an oversized, 24-page full color anthology comic book, will be on sale for $2.99 in stores November 9 and is available to order now in the September issue of Previews. For more information, visit www.thoughtbubblefestival.com.
