By the hammer of Thor, we have a lot of news at the moment, a sure sign that this year’s Festival is getting closer than Luke Skywalker and the insides of a tauntaun. Deep breath, here goes…
The Adi Granov masterclass (previously announced here) has had a date change, and an expansion… On October 9th Thought Bubble and Travelling Man Leeds will hold a very special night of comics fun, with an interactive art-wall shop-front where anyone can pop by and draw some doodles! Plus free comics! Also Iron Man concept artist Adi Granov will run a special Art Masterclass!
Coinciding with Leeds’ annual Light Night there will be a very special masterclass lead by Industry comics superstar Adi Granov. Adi will run an Art/Breaking into comics masterclass which will take participants through the process of how he works and talk about how to build a strong portfolio. Places are very limited for this event, so sign up soon to avoid disappointment…

Next bit of news is related to our last post, concerning the Leeds International Film Festival (our partner in quality edutainment) and their extension…
Next week the LIFF team will be announcing their venue line-up for this year’s festival, along with early details of the programme sections and the first film announcements. The festival’s team are also on the look-out for volunteers to help the various events run smoothly, writers with a love of cinema for their Fanomenon series, and are also still accepting submissions of films for the festival proper.
The best way to get all the latest updates for this year’s Film Festival is to subscribe to their newsletter via firstname.lastname@example.org
The final little bit of news is more related to our core aim: providing top notch sequential art bits and bobs to you, our loyal (and thoroughly lovely) fans. Malorie Blackman (author of most excellent prose, including Pig Heart Boy) has a peice up on the Guardian’s website counting down her Top 10 Graphic Novels for Teenagers. It’s a strong list, and one which anyone who has been looking for a way to break into the, sometimes baffling, world of sequential art could be well served in following. Totally worth checking out, and anything with such a worthwhile cause as getting more youngsters reading comics (and also affording the medium the respect it so rightly deserves in the mainstream) requires everyone’s attention.
And that’s the news. Keep checking back regularly for all the juiciest Thought Bubble and Sequential Art morsels and we’ll see you in November for both the festivals, as Wyclef Jean might have said (Mr Jean is in no way affiliated with either Thought Bubble or the LIFF).
