From The Bubble

An “artist’s” impression of how my table was supposed to look

Once again, Thought Bubble has been and gone, and the entire UK comics community is in a state of comedown. There’s not much to say about Leeds’ annual Comics and Sequential Art Festival, that I don’t say every year- that it’s a wonderfully welcoming and inclusive event, brilliantly organised, and it just gets bigger, better and more enjoyable every year. So where does that leave the traditional Thoughtbubble Report blog post? Well, I took a bunch of photos, and there were thousands of cosplayers about, so you don’t have to look at my stupid face.

Guts, from Berserk (you sure as hell learn stuff about manga at these things), and a Harley Quinn

This was one of the many Harley Quinns in attendance. There are always a lot of Harley Quinns, but this year it was through the roof. I lost count at about 15, and that was mid morning on the first day!

As I brilliantly predicted, Star Wars is so hot right now

sketch3

Everyone still loves Baby Groot. And Baymax loves Daredevil

sketch2

Gandalf and Griff

cos1

More cosplayers. We’ve decided, next year we’re all cosplaying as Jareth from Labyrinth

cos5

Know what? They’re *all* Snow White


And finally…
