Thought Bubble 2017 information coming soon!


Friends of Thought Bubble Inaugural Edition by thoughtbubblefestival

As part of the build-up to the Thought Bubble Festival I’m going to post a semi-regular feature (updates on Wednesday) whereby we here at the TB Blog-o-mat exhibit some of the awesome work of the Small Press and Independent Friends of Thought Bubble (spift-bee for short,  possibly.)

Hopefully this will introduce those of you unfamiliar with the more online/indie aspect of comics to some of the genius works that are out there, and also let you get an idea of what to expect from this years convention.

Kicking off this Tony Hart-esque series of posts is the work of the brilliant Mr Hugh Raine owner and proprietor of Reet – a thoroughly excellent example of Leeds’ flourishing Small-Press scene – some of which can be seen in the gallery below (click on the thumbnails for larger versions).

Hugh ‘Shug’ Raine is a cartoonist and small-press comic book maker from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and self-published REET! for nearly four years, which was a free comic-zine distributed in Leeds and Hull.
The free comic was retired so Shug could persue other comic projects, like Jenny’s Weird Friend for the alternative arts magazine Dangerous Ink, various anthology contributions such as Fat Chunk and titles such as Barbs, Interference and Olive’s Mix Tape, produced for small press and alternative press fairs across the UK.
For information about upcoming REET! projects and more free comics than you can waggle a twig at, visit www.reetcomic.co.uk or check out his regularly updated blog.

Hopefully that little lot will satisfy any sequential art cravings you might be harbouring, remember to come back next week for another installment of this steadily growing pantheon of small press lovliness.
