A great review from James Bacon over at Forbidden Planet International blog, click through the link to read his full recap of Leeds Thought Bubble Festival . Here’s an excerpt , to say we’re over the moon with this is an understatement. Thank you sir!
“As well as sketches, I have a small amount of money for self published comics. This is a cottage industry on an incredible scale, and I am spoilt for choice and limited by funds, so I consider carefully the comics that I do buy. The first stand that really strikes me is a 3D display and bright imagery for Afroella. Described by the pleasant Gemma Bedeau as a ‘blaxploitation Barberella’ she explained that herself and artist Lee Fenton-Wilkinson had been working on it a year, and I can see the fruits of their labour. Straight away the strong colours and strikingly clear artwork in a realistic but cartoon style are captivating, but it is the added cleverness of the characters and the rollicking science fiction story that makes it a real winner.”
