THOUGHT BUBBLE 2014.

























Above:  S
tanding behind my stall Saturday morning. Thanks to Alec for the photo.

Introduction:
Before you read on I would just like to say that I have a mild whinge later on in this report. However I thought that the whole event and that the Thought Bubble helpers (in red shirts) were very sympethetic and totally amazing, so thank you.  I would also like to add that I do realise that organising an event of this size is a difficult task at the best of times and not every one is going to be happy.

Friday 14th November.

7.00 AM: Start the day with the usual routine.
10.00 AM: Pack Car.
1.30 AM: Start the journey to Leeds.
2.30 AM: Traffic delays on the M25 mean that I’ve only covered 30 miles in an hour.
4.10 PM: Stop for a break some where around junction 21 on the M1, traffic delays are still bad.
7.10 PM:  Arrive at Travelodge on the M1, just outside Leeds.
11.30 PM: Crash out after watching a few movies in the motel room.

SPECTRE SHOW MAKES ITS DEBUT AT THOUGHT BUBBLE 2014.









































Remember where you were the day the gates to the afterlife collapsed?  The day humanity discovered that the spirits of the dead could possess their bodies at will, and that those spirits were very, very angry?  No?  Well, we can’t say we blame you for blocking it out of your mind . . .all that murder, torment and carnage.  Let writer Shaun Avery and artist David Broughton and a psychotic TV host called Ted E. Scare be your memory.  But be warned – what you discover might scar you, and there'll be no going back . . .


Spectre Show is being launched at Thought Bubble Comicon and is being sold on Table 25 (David Broughton Comics) in New Dock Hall.  32 Pages A4 format for only £3.50p.

JUDGE DREDD: HANKS TALE.

Script: Richmond Clements. Art: David Broughton. Letters: Bolt 01.


















Above: Hank is singled out for a little justice department advice.

I contacted Dave Evans on 15/11/13 to see if he had any Dredd scripts for me to draw. He sent me a script written by the talented Mr. Richmond Clements.  I was of course happy to accept and the commissioning email was sent on 15/11/13. I started the artwork on 14/12/13 and had it all finished by 30/12/13.  Bolt 01 lettered the artwork by 05/01/14 and the story was published on 01/07/14 in Zarjaz #21.

THE BOY WHO INVENTED ANTI-TIME

Script: Greg Meldrum Art and Lettering: David Broughton.
















Above:
A piccy from this wibbly wobbly timey wimey... story.

Owen Watts editor of  the 'Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel' sent me a script on the 4th of April 2013. The script was writen by none other than Greg Meldrum. If you have read my blog before you may be aware that I co-created Martillo and worked on various other fantastic scripts written by Greg. I had a fair amount of artwork on the go which meant that I didn't start drawing this story until the 9th of July. I think the deadline Owen had given me was January 1st 2014, so I  had plenty of time. As usual I've provided thumbnail sketches, rough layouts and finished pencils with comments detailing my process below.  I sent Owen the fully coloured and lettered artwork on the 22nd of July.
