Greetings, true bubblievers!
Spring is approaching, and the sun is valiantly fighting its way back into the sky, so, by my ancient Babylonian crop tracking device, I make it just about time to make some big ol’ TBF13 announcements! HUZZAH!
We are delighted to reveal that this year’s festival will run from 17th – 24th November, in conjunction with the 27th Leeds International Film Festival, and our humongous convention will take place on the 23rd & 24th November! We’ll have announcements coming soon regarding table registration and ticket sales for the convention, but in the meantime we have our first wave of guests confirmed, including…
– Rafael Alburquerque (American Vampire);
– Gabriel Bá (Daytripper, Casanova);
– Andy Belanger (Swamp Thing, Black Church);
– Becky Cloonan (Batman, Wolves, The Mire);
– Ming Doyle (Mara, Jennifer’s Body)
– Fábio Moon (Casanova, Daytripper);
– Sean Gordon Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus);
– Ramón Pérez (Wolverine & The X-Men);
– Emma Rios (Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly);
– Annie Wu (Hawkeye, The Venture Bros)
You can see more details on the website, and we’ll have many, many more guests to announce as the festival draws closer, so keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook to find out as soon as we add new names to the list!
In further TBF13 news, and as you’ve probably spotted from the top of the blog – we’ve got an awesome new festival image! This year’s festival icon has been provided by the wonderful Alice Duke, and we should hopefully have a blog post soon about her process for creating it. We love it, and the sci-fi vibe that it’s giving to this year’s proceedings is out of this world. Literally! Hahaha– sorry. You can see the full version of her ace art below (click to embiggen).
That’s all for the time being, but there’s plenty more to see up at thoughtbubblefestival.com so be sure to have a nose around, and we’ll be back soon with more updates for our biggest festival ever!
Oh, and Minterviews will be back next week! So look out for that! YAY!
