City talking: “Thought Bubble Is A Reflection Of What I Love”

“Thought Bubble is a reflection of what I love,” says Lisa, “And of what everyone who works on the festival loves. We just try and celebrate the best sequential art out there, no matter what genre it is.

“There are various reasons why I started Thought Bubble, but from the beginning it was always going to be creator focused, about the artists and writers. We don’t involve any media, TV or film stars like a lot of other big conventions, we’re just purely based on comics.”
