A Day of Comic Books in Leeds

Hi everyone! I had a great time at Thought Bubble convention up in Leeds, even if we had to cram 4 people behind one table! We sold some comics, bought some comics, ate a lot of pizza, gave away free copies of the economy edition of A Lonely Raven.

I only bought three comics on the day:-

Filmish: Comic Book Essays on Film Theory by Edward Ross:- The storytelling style used in this comic is similar to that of Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics, which is a compliment from me! The essays were well done and I would definitely pick up Filmish Issue 2 and 100 Tiny Moments From My Past, Present and Future.

Spandex by Martin Eden:- The creator of one of my favourite superhero comics The O Men comes the tale of an all-gay super team Spandex with their transvestite leader Liberty aka Jason Ford. Spandex teams up to stop a 50 ft Lesbian from wrecking havoc in Brighton, death of a team member and a character who can has the power to absorb the abilities and skills of any gay person within the vicinity!

EthelSparrowhawk’s Terrible Hangover by Steven Tillotson and Jemima VonSchindelberg:- This is a good sequel to the brilliant tragicomedy Ethel Sparrowhawk. We follow Ethel as she tries her best to turn her life around after a series of bad luck and escape a life of monotony to follow her dreams. I've followed Steven Tillotson’s work on Banal Pig, one of my favourite comics to read for its uncomfortable dark humour and the disturbing look of Jolly Bear. 

Make sure to check out these comics which are available for online purchase online their websites.
