In celebration of Thought Bubble’s tenth birthday, 2016 saw the publication of our first ever collected edition of the Thought Bubble Comics Anthology!
Available now, from all good comic shops and digitally through ComiXology, and the excellent cover (with art by the amazing Eleanor Davis) can be seen below!
All profits from the sale of this collection will be donated to the Barnardo’s Charity, and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to, and purchased, our previous single issue anthologies and helped us raise money for this wonderful cause.
We’d also like to extend our gratitude to both Image Comics and Comicraft for their invaluable help in producing and distributing the anthology each year, without whom none of this would be possible.
This collection brings together the previous 5 issues of the Thought Bubble Comic Anthology, presented in traditional American graphic novel format, and comprising over 130 pages of stories from the best creators in the comics community.
We’re also very pleased to present a selection of winning entries from 2010-2014’s Thought Bubble Comic Art competitions as part of this collection, and would like to thank everyone who has entered over the years! For information on this year’s competition, please click here.
In 2010, with the help of Arts Council England, we launched the Thought Bubble Comic Art Competition, which was a new platform to support and encourage UK artists. As a result – and with the help of Image Comics and Comicraft – we launched our first comics anthology which was compiled to showcase the winning pages, alongside original works from major industry talent and some of our favourite independent creators.
We are very proud to be able to bring you this book, a huge collection of all those incredible stories we’ve been collecting together since our first anthology, and we hope you enjoy reading it as much as we did putting it together.
