The annual Thought Bubble comic book convention in Leeds, England will be having a huge Image Comics panel on November 17th to November 18th. Image Comics’ creators will be there to do signings, portfolio reviews, and they will have a panel at the convention. Image Comics will also be sold by the British retailer Travelling Man. These include debut titles, exclusives, and the official Thought Bubble anthology. The proceeds for this anthology will be going to the children's charity barnardo's, so donate $3.99 to help out some kids and to enjoy an anthology from several Image creators.

But the Thought Bubble doesn’t completely revolve around Image. It offers a lot more and started almost a full week before the Image Comics panel on November 11th. So, if you can take a flight out to England… in a of couple days… or are a lucky Leeds resident, take a trip over to the Thought Bubble convention in Leeds, England while I remain grounded here overseas.Find out more about the Thought Bubble Convention here.
