Great Beast at Thought Bubble & The British Comic Awards

Posted on Nov 12, 2014 in Appearances, New releases, News


The mighty Thought Bubble Festival is just around the corner and of course Great Beast will be there in force! It’s the best show in the country, nay, the world and we can’t wait to get there and meet all you lovely people. The comic convention runs from Saturday 15th to Sunday 16th November, 10:00-17:00 each day at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

The map above shows where you can find us, just to the right as you enter the main hall. We’ve pretty much commandeered a whole aisle! Appearing in the GREAT BEAST AISLE will be Marc Ellerby, Adam Cadwell, Rachael Smith, John Cei Douglas and Hitsville UK’s John Riordan and Dan Cox!

Robert M Ball and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell will also be at the show in their usual spot at Table 10 in the Royal Armouries Hall.

So what’s new? Well how about the third issue of Hitsville UK! Debuting at the show and available to buy online and at all good comic shops (and some record shops) shortly after.

And what else have got for you? How does a reprint of the sold out Dangeritis suit you? Yes, we’re reprinting Dangeritis: A Fistful of Danger in a pint-size edition and including a brand new 8-page Derek story! Not bad, eh?

Not only that there’s a Dangeritis Exhibition now showing at Travelling Man Leeds as part of the Thought Bubble Festival including the new Derek story in full and a selection of incredible Derek fan art! Here’s some snaps:

And speaking of Dangeritis, did you know it has been nominated for BEST COMIC in this year’s British Comic Awards? And so has Isabel Greenberg’s Tall Tales and Outrageous Adventures #1: The Snow Queen and Other Stories! After Robert M Ball’s Winter’s Knight: Day One WON last year we now have TWO titles in the final five AND Rachael Smith is up for EMERGING TALENT for her work on House Party and other titles. We’ll have our fingers crossed for Rob, Warwick, Isabel and Rachael until Saturday night when the winners are announced at the 3rd Annual BCA Ceremony.
