The Leeds-based Thought Bubble has announced this year’s convention, part of their annual week of comic-related events will take place on 15th-16th November, and have announced some of their overseas guests already, conscious, perhaps, of the number of other comic events now running in the UK.
The announced guests so far are as US comic artist Natasha Allegri, Montreal-based artist Andy Belanger (Kill Shakespeare), Canada’s Emily Carroll (Out of Skin, Grave of the Lizard Queen), the award-winning Becky Cloonan (Demeter, The Wolves), Danielle Corsetto (Girls with Slingshots), Adam Hughes (best known today for his incredible covers), Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow), Matteo Scalera (Dead Body Road), US writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire, The Wake), Allison Sohn (Red Sonja, sample above) and Jillian Tamaki
