A collection of new short stories and art by some of the best in the business including LUKE PEARSON, the creator of the Netflix show Hilda, and a cute whimsical story by The Great British Bake Off finalist KIM-JOY. This anthology is part of the United Kingdom’s Thought Bubble Festival which takes place in Yorkshire, Northern England from November 4-10, 2019. All profits from this comic go to Barnardo’s, one of the largest children’s charities in the UK.

Thought Bubble Anthology 2019 is a collection of sequential art from the UK’s largest festival dedicated to the matter.

The styles and themes are varied, and one page may have no relation to the next, so one shouldn’t expect the usual from these 30-something pages.

What one does get, however, is a collection of some of the most interesting, most promising artists from all over the country. These range from wordless pieces exploring what attracts artists to the art form, and snippets of promising stories hoping to be made in the future, to an actual recipe in comic form.

The art varies from piece to piece, so while it’s not likely you’ll love every page, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
