Hamster Punk – Pets, Drugs and Rock’n’Roll at Thought Bubble

HamPunk Cover
Star Wars: Clone Wars and How To Train Your Dragon artist Tanya Roberts will be at Thought Bubble in Leeds promoting her brand new comic Hamster Punk. This came out of a meeting between Tanya and writer Anthony Jones at Thought Bubble back in 2012 and, published under the Arcana imprint, the comic will debut at this weekend’s Thought Bubble.

Using Tanya’s animation style artwork, Hamster Punk tells Ant’s tale of four cybernetically enhanced pets, a dog called Maxine, a bird called Gibson, a frog called Farley and of course a hamster called Johnny, who set out to rescue their owners after they were taken hostage by Dr Sakana of the Sterling Corporation. It sounds like a fun, all ages version of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s much darker WE3.
