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.

SKETCHING AT THOUGHT BUBBLE.








































On Sunday 16th November I'll be sketching at Thought Bubble 2014 on Table 25 in the New Dock Hall.  http://thoughtbubblefestival.com/new-dock-hall-floor-plan/ I'll be drawing mainly Dredd heads and maybe other 2000ad characters for free.

Hope to see you there!

David Broughton.
