We’ve been taking a look at new books and comics coming out at the upcoming Thought Bubble Comics Festival, a week-long celebration of creativity and comics that takes place in Leeds in the north of England. The festival culminates in a weekend-long comic con on September 23rd-24th. Taking over a fair part of the city across a number of venues, the event always includes the big splash con party and a smorgasbord of incredible comics and creativity in every corner you can find.
Hex Girlfriend #1, written and drawn by Mr. Picto, is described as:
“Peter has reached the end of his tether with Allison; she’s abused their relationship for the last time, and he’s bringing it to an end. Allison does not take their breakup well.
Shortly after, misfortune starts to follow Pete around. He’s beset on all sides bad luck, increasing in severity throughout the day and culminating in horrific injury. Is this mere coincidence, or are sinister forces at work? 16 pages, £3.00”
Also available and conveniently culturally relevant again is creepy clown collection ‘The Painted Men’:
“A series of stories following events in the history of the cult of clowns and their actions in service to the god-like ‘Painted Man’ and his children. 40 pages of silly, yet spooky fun, £8.00.”
