In case you weren't able to make this year's Thought Bubble: The Leeds Comic Art Festival, ROBOT 6 has rounded up snippets of the overall experience through social media. The festival, now in its eighth year, was held Nov. 9-16, ending with a two-day convention on Nov. 15-16. Beyond the final two-day event, Thought Bubble offered more than 80 comics-related opportunities -- some in cooperation with the 28th Leeds International Film Festival.
Some of those events held included The Rainbow Age: LGBQT Comic-book Club (a celebration of LGBQT comics and creators); a Dr Sketchy’s gathering; and a two-day Comics Forum Academic Conference.
A variety of creators attended the actual weekend convention, including Jason Latour, Hope Larson, Gemma Correll, Becky Cloonan, Natasha Allegri, Jeff Lemire, Gary Erskine, Brendan Fletcher, Brian Hurtt, Kieron Gillen, Matt Kindt, Sarah McIntyre, Emma Rios and Babs Tarr.
Enjoy some of the social media pieces capturing moments from Thought Bubble.
