The 2nd collection of The Everyday will be released at this Saturday’s Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds. The mighty 40 page tome collects strips 51 through 100 plus bonus strips and a covers gallery. I’ll be holding 2 compititions next week, one to win a copy of Collection Two and one to win a copy of all 12 minicomics before they go out of print! But until then here’s more about the show.

Thought Bubble launched last year associated with the Leeds International Film Festival and was a great show, the organisers really supported the small press artists and there was a friendly buzz to the whole day (there were even cupcakes with superhero rings on them!). This year the event has grown and will now take over the Royal Armouries’ Saville’s Hall (named after Leeds’ Jimmy Saville) for a day and they’ve packed in loads of great events and panels plus attracted some big comic names (anyone heard of Mark Millar?). I know a lot of the UK comics scene are looking forward to this show, especially after a confusing experience at this year’s Birmingham Show (note my lack of con report). I’m kind of annoyed I’ll miss most of it sat behind my table but at least I get to go to the after party in A CASINO.

I’ll be sharing with the talented imp Lizz Lunney, and we’ll be sat next to or even between Liz “I’m on a panel” Greenfield and Marc “I’m on 2 panels, yeah?” Ellerby.
