Thought Bubble Liveblogging

November 14th, 2015

We’re in Leeds, we have jumble, and we’re ready to liveblog. If you’re at Thought Bubble and want Bobsy, Illogical Volume, or myself to do a blog post for you, we’re charging a penny a word. Short posts will be added as updates to this post, larger ones will get their own.

We’re currently sat in New Dock (definitely not Savile’s) Hall, and waiting for your custom. We have cakes.

The Beast Must Die is flogging his British Comics Award nominated Cindy and Biscuit:

When he’s not shaming us all with his good looks and professionalism, Dan will be selling the collected edition of the first four issues  (We Love Trouble!) alongside the latest issue, The Bad Girl.

Kind of cosmic sciatica Gary Lactus is elling his comics, including two volume of The Cleaner, his excellent autobiographical comic:

Don’t be fooled by the fact that he’s produced the comic under his (ridiculous) stage name Fraser Geesin, it’s 100% Lactus!

Gary’s completed the second volume of The Cleaner for Thought Bubble, and it’s essential reading for anyone who like stories about people doing things.

And I have a selection of my books-without-pictures for sale, for those of you who come to a comics convention but don’t want to buy any more comics. £5 or best offer.

Liveblog update one:
This is fifty-two words (to be comicy) for “Mystery Beardman” on the subject of “Elemental Micah: Just Exhale” by Michael Georgiou.
This is a black-and-white comic about a gay young man with the powers of a god. I am told it is very very good, and very very gay.

Liveblog update two, paid for by a mysterious benefactor:

Table 65a though bubble marquee – graphic violence and black and white female led sports drama – Freaktown 

Not so much a blog post as an advert but one that was overpaid for to the cost of 5p so we’re not going to complain!

Liveblog update the final:

And finally, commissioned by the Mindless Ones’ own The Beast Must Die himself, we have two hundred words by Andre Whickey and Illogical Volume on Image United #1.

“Mayhem! Destruction! There’s no limit to the pain and misery I can cause!”

This is the ultimate comic, sequential art reaching its peak of potential. What could be better than Rob Liefeld layouts? How about Rob Liefeld layouts with Whilce Portacio finishing them? How about Liefeld, Larsen, Portacio, McFarlane, Silvestri, and Valentino?
Comics’ greatest creators, comics’ greatest characters, all in colour for three dollars ninety-nine. The greatest story in history.

HI KIDS! ILLOGICAL VOLUME HERE, BEAT-BEAMING MY THOUGHTS STRAIGHT ONTO ANDREW’s COMPUTER DIRECT! LIKE AN OLD-SCHOOL IMAGE COMIC, MY BRAIN IS REALLY FUCKING LOUD SO FORGIVE THE ALL-CAPS!

YOU THINK I’M DOWN BUT THEN BAM!, I’M FISTING A SHARK, GETTING PEGGED BY THE SPIRIT OF STANLEE! THIS COMIC HAS THE REAL ANIMAL MAGIC, Y’KNOW? WHEN PAPPA’S GOT A FINN PAPPA’S GOTTA GET HIS FINN ON!
