There’s three things that signal that the year is almost at an end – it’s dark in the mornings, the shops have Christmas decorations up and the Thought Bubble weekend. Our favourite wintry comic con that’s near the end of a long con season has come and gone – but not without a visit from comic fans, comic creators and Comics Anonymous!
Ever wanted to see the Comics Anon gang in action? Do you have a burning question to ask us? Would you like to buy us a drink? Or do you just want to stare at us blankly until we feel a little uncomfortable? Well this weekend you can do all of the above and more since Comic Anonymous will be setting up camp at this year’s Thought Bubble in Leeds!

This weekend sees the Thought Bubble Festival close with its two-day comic book event – quite possibly one of the best Comic Con’s in the UK and definitely a favourite of the Comics Anonymous gang. We have a table this year in the Royal Armouries Hall Table 88 which you can swing by for some Comic chat/shenanigans…..minus G-Man this year (He’s crying himself to sleep on the run up to it).

Gordon McLean’s No More Heroes hit issue #3 and after a phenomenal build-up in issue #1 & #2 – he made sure his title took top spot in the Comics Anonymous reading pile giving us high hopes of its on-going quality.

Obscure Reference comics will be launching the third and final part of their Villanous title at this years Thought Bubble…..but the Comics Anonymous team were lucky enough to get one of the first looks.
We show our favourite comic creators just home much we love them week in, week out by buying their books and talking about them, but why not go one step further and actually award them for their achievements in comics? Well now you can help by taking part in the British Comic Awards.

A long time ago in a city far far away, Comics Anonymous attended Thought Bubble. Remember that? Yes ok – it’s all so very 2011, however we’ve got one last tasty morsal from that weekend that we’ve still to share with you which, due to some technical issues, had taken some time to get to you – but here it is!

This year’s Thought Bubble had several big names attached to it – none more so than Adam Hughes, someone we don’t see enough of in the UK. We managed to catch up with Adam during the con to ask him about his recent tutorial video and the thought and techniques that go into his amazing artwork.

Bryan Talbot is a British comics creator who doesn’t have to trade on 4 middle of the road issues he did for a big time Marvel/ DC cape in the 90s to draw a crowd at a convention. Whilst he has worked extensively for 2000AD, had stints on Batman and Gaiman’s Sandman it is his own, original graphic novels that he is perhaps most well known for.
