Cup of O – Small Press Reviews: A Certain Symmetry, CROSS and How To Be A Superhero

Cup of O - Small Press Reviews

A Certain Symmetry (Self Published) By Richard Worth & Jordan Collver I’ve long been an admirer of the distinctively creative collaborations of Worth & Collver and this tantalizing pamphlet (at the time intended purely to seduce publishers) is another slice of fried gold from the team. Sadly, it appears at the moment at least that their 2014 Thought Bubble gambit ... Read More »

Writer Richmond Clements, co-editor of FutureQuake, pays tribute to an unsung hero of British comics – and particularly 2000AD – fandom, whose death was announced at the weekend… There has been a running black joke this year about the innumerable number of good people who’ve been dying. In our nerd culture, the many fandoms have their own leaders, their own personalities. ... Read More »

Cup of O - Small Press Reviews

  Hello! The three comics I’m reviewing this month bring me to within a year of now (the reading pile is getting smaller by the month!) and came respectively from Thought Bubble 2013, my local comic shop Excelsior in Bristol and as a Kickstarter reward in the early months of 2014.

Cup of O - Small Press Reviews

  Happy 2015 to all Down the Tubes readers! I’ve got a bumper crop of reviews for you – all of them are comics bought at the tail end of 2013 (this is how big my reading pile is!) at the first Lakes International and the Thought Bubble of that year.   Raygun Roads (Changeling Studios) Owen Michael Johnson/Indio   Raygun Roads is utterly ridiculous. ...

Cup of O – Thought Bubble Stash Dissection

  Last month saw the annual appearance of the Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival in Leeds – the convention element of which is a permanent fixture on the convention calendar for the majority of small pressers in the UK. I was there selling The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel with co-editor Geoffery Crescent and we owe everything to underground comics king Jon Lock and Lucy Brown for their generous ...

Thought Bubble 2014, which took place in Leeds this weekend, was the biggest incarnation of this annual Festival so far. It had a few added twists to its layout and style, with the TB Teepee the biggest addition and occupied a place in the central concourse. It was here that most of the big names were signing and was, after ... Read More »

Thought Bubble Gets Cross (the Disconnected Anthology, that is…)

CROSS Anthology - Final Cover

This weekend will see the launch of the CROSS anthology from Disconnected Press at Thought Bubble, a glorious assemblage of political wit, satire and polite British rage! And we do mean glorious, because Conor Boyle, the co-conspirator in the project with partner Lizzie, has sent us a preview copy which comes with a stonking cover from Pye Parr, and it looks fantastic, ...
