Thought Bubble is a big deal, its the biggest and best comic festival in the UK. This year it has grown so big, they have had to create a huge teepee to house part of it.
Several of the Electricrew are already Thought Bubble regulars, so taking Electricomics to it was a no-brainer, but we really wanted to make it a bit special too.
We decided to produce a very limited edition booklet exclusively for Thought Bubble. Something special to have there so people can take part of the project home with them.
The booklet will have some of the beautiful art we have coming in for the project, some of the lovely shots taken by Mitch Jenkins over the course of project so far, a stunning cover by Colleen Doran, a completely new three page comic by our digital comics guru Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, and an interview with the man behind the curtain himself, Alan Moore.
Mr Moore has kindly said he will pre-sign all of them, and of course you can also get them signed at the show by Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, John Reppion, Peter Hogan and Leah Moore.
We are not going to reprint these ever, they represent a sizeable chunk of our marketing budget, and as a research and design project we do not have any reserves, so if you buy one, its a one off!
We will also have a selection of badges so even if you haven’t got pots of cash, you can still make your friends jealous and proudly show that you are on Team Electricomics!
So if you are up for it, and I am assuming at least a few of you are, we will be there!
November 15th and 16th, 10am till 5pm, Table 22 in New Dock Hall.
There will be somebody from the team manning the booth throughout the show, and you can also catch them at the Electricomics panel on Saturday afternoon from 1.30 till 2.20, in the Newsroom, on the 4th floor of the Royal Armories: Peter Hogan, Dan Goodbrey, Mitch Jenkins, John Reppion and Leah Moore will be talking about the project, how it came about, where they are up to now, and what they hope to achieve.
As if that wasn’t enough, if your schedule is really tight, and you have other stuff to do while the panel is on, you can catch Leah Moore John Reppion and Peter Hogan all signing on Saturday 3 till 4.30 in Royal Armouries Hall, tables 23 and 24 which are the designated signing tables, so bring down your trades and back issues and get them signed!
Leah and John will also be signing from 3 till 4.15 on the Sunday afternoon, before they dash off home, so Sunday only people, you will not miss out!
The team will be at the party on the Saturday night too, so make sure you get your ticket and come along and say hi. Its always a blast. Last year we drank the bar dry, not just us of course, there were hundreds of people there. Ahem.
Anyway, Thought Bubble 2014, if its not already in your diary, then its still not too late!
