Thought Bubble, the UK’s largest comic art festival has announced this years’ event will take place between the 8th-14th November 2021 and shared an impressive first wave of guests scheduled to appear at the annual comic art convention.

Thought Bubble Festival brings a week-long celebration of comics to Yorkshire. It will end with a huge comic convention which will return to Harrogate Convention Centre in November for a weekend filled with over 350 comic-creating exhibitors, guests, panels and much more.
They announced some of the biggest names for their guest list. Acclaimed writer ​Gail Simone, known for her incredible work on DC’s ​Birds of Prey​ as well as ​Clean Room, Secret Six, and​ Wonder Woman. ​Joining Gail in Harrogate will be comic legend ​Scott Snyder, a writer known for ​American Vampire, Detective Comics, and Swamp Thing​.

The festival and convention will be teaming up with presenting partner ​comiXology ​once again, working with the digital distributor giant on special appearances, comic debuts, panels and more.

“We miss Thought Bubble”

Tickets for Thought Bubble Comic Convention are on sale now with tickets for under 12s, carers and over 65s totally free! Tickets give access to all events within the comic convention; panels, workshops, guest signings as well as the three huge halls of comic exhibitors.

The safety of guests, exhibitors, and fans remains Thought Bubble’s highest priority. And the festival won’t take place if the safety of attendees is in question, or if restrictions are in place.

With safety being so important, the festival team are working closely with Harrogate Convention Centre. Organisations, including the Association of Independent Festivals will also ensure the event is safe for everybody.

In the event of cancellation, ticket holders will receive a refund. Or they can also choose to carry a ticket over to a new date. Thought Bubble would like to thank the comics community for their generous support and encouragement through a very tough time.

Chloe Green, Thought Bubble Festival Manager said “It’s difficult to put into words how much we miss Thought Bubble. We feel lost without it! The digital comic convention in 2020 was a lot of fun but it will never replace a physical convention; we wanna see your faces (and your comics!) and we know a lot of you feel the same. We are treading extremely cautiously… but with this line-up already it’s difficult not to get excited.”
