Thought Bubble 2016 – our hot picks and odd excitements

Here at Consequential dot net, Thought Bubble is our absolute favourite festival occurring between Halloween and the Beaujolais Nouveau.

Seriously though, it’s  probably the best comics event in the UK, and it’s a great time to:

  1. discover some amazing new comics.
  2. dance like several hundred people are watching, but are all just too lovely and welcoming to even form an opinion about that thing you’re doing with your hands.

We love the ol’ T’Bubz, and here’s a selection of things we’re looking out for, including some old favourites and interesting debuts.

Podcast Episode 50 – The Best Comics of 2015

ConSequential Podcast Episode 50 - The Best Comics of 2015Here at the old Consequential.net, we like to think that we cover the very best comics week on week. So it stands to reason that our selections for the best of the year are a rarefied breed indeed, yes? Yes. We’re not saying these books will get you laid, but they probably won’t get you sent to prison either. Great! Plus, someone wins a prize! Could it be you? Yes!*

Thought Bubble 2015 – what we’re excited about

Thought Bubble! It’s Brit-nerd new year! Or something!

9781473326965_MULP_02_CoverLook, it’s a big old mess of just all the comics and the comics people, and the fun and the dancing, and probably too much beer, and the podcasting, and the new things, and the cosplay and the shiny, and yeah. It’s pretty great.

It’s also a cracking time to stumble on new stuff. But we try to go prepared. We’re like the boy scouts of spending far too much money on comics, with a throbbing hangover.

Last year, we had a few bits of advice on how to get the best out of comics shows, and this year we’ve picked out some things we might just consider buying.

So here’s a few titles and publishers you should check out at T’Bubz

ConSequential Podcast 32 - Agony Ant-Man

This week we’re giving something back to the people. As Agony Ant-Man, we take listener questions and pump out good advice and comics-related wisdom at a frankly disturbing volume. As in quantity. If it’s too loud, turn it down. We can’t do everything for you. Read On…

Thought Bubble 2014 – Roger’s comics haul

This weekend, as has probably be annoyingly obvious from our Twitter account, we went to Thought Bubble. It was aces.

If you spent the weekend hiding under a rock, or just muted the hashtag because you didn’t want to hear about my hangover, Thought Bubble is a fantastic comics con in Leeds. It’s been growing like crazy, and is now a brain-buggeringly vast opportunity to discover new comics, talk to comics creators, and make a right old tit of yourself on a dancefloor.
