2011 saw the Thought Bubble Festival celebrate its 5th birthday, and to mark this momentous occasion we released the first ever Thought Bubble Comic Anthology!
Featuring a variety of original tales by incredible industry talent from around the world, plus some shining new stars of the UK comics community, our first anthology was curated with the ultimate aim of showcasing the very best that sequential art has to offer.
Distribution was handled by the wonderful people at Image Comics, who loved the anthology so much they gave us their Spotlight page in September’s issue of Previews!
The comic retails at $2.99 (which should be around £2.20 in most UK comic and book stores). And features new work by Mike Carey, Duncan Fegredo, Charlie Adlard, Andy Diggle, D’Israeli, Antony Johnston, Robin Furth, Becky Cloonan and film director Stuart Gordon.
Issue #1 also featured all the winning entries from 2010’s Northern Sequential Art Competition with stories from Gavin Ross, Sally Jane Thompson, Will Morris, Alice Summerscales, Sophie Kamlish, and Raymond Mak.
All profits from the sale of the anthology go to the charity Barnardos.
The anthology is available digitally via comiXology.
