With only 27 days to go, the preparation for this years Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival is hotting up with the nationwide release of the festival’s guide in Travelling Man comic book stores across the country.
An online version of the guide can be viewed and downloaded here: http://issuu.com/thoughtbubblecomicartfest/docs/thoughtbubble2013_guide – but, c’mon, nowt beats print, does it? (Says the guy who loves ComicZeal on his iPad like some kind of digital maverick.)
Thought Bubble also supports new and upcoming artists and writers with its Comic Art Competition, run in association with Travelling Man, Image Comics, 2000AD, Marvel Comics and Diamond Comics. The nominees for this years prize have been announced today.
This will be the fourth year of the competition and aims to “discover new creative talent as well as new work from established writers and artists”. The competition has two categories, young people aged 12-17 and adults aged 18+.
A gallery of entries can be found on the Thought Bubble website and an exhibition will on show at Leeds Library during the Festival. Six winning entries will be selected and also featured in the 2014 edition of the Thought Bubble Anthology.
