Thomas Cook Collapse Strands The Pride Creator Joe Glass Before New York Comic Con

The collapse of British travel company Thomas Cook Group has affected over 600,000 travelers, with many citizens of the U.K. and Germany left stranded when the company ceased operations over the weekend.

Amongst the travelers stuck in a foreign country with no flight home is Joe Glass, writer of the hit ComiXology Original The Pride. Glass was vacationing in Greece when the news broke, leaving him to wait for the U.K. government to execute its plan to bring stranded citizens back home. Glass reacted to the situation on Twitter.

 

And while Glass recognizes that being stranded in Greece isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the world, it could have an effect for the creator’s future plans.

Glass needs to get home soon or it could hamper his plans to attend New York Comic Con in October, telling Bleeding Cool that he could miss his flight if the U.K.’s Civil Aviation Authority isn’t able to bring him back soon. On the bright side, he tells us, “At least my tan will last longer.”

Glass also shared some thoughts on the root cause of the collapse: Brexit.

Kind of ironic, dontcha think, that thanks to Brexit, now 150,000 U.K. citizens need a Brenter?

Glass declined to give a comment to U.K. tabloid The Sun, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

Here’s hoping Glass is able to make it back home in time to head to New York Comic Con, though we also hope he booked his own flights for that one.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
