Before we know it, it’ll be November and the Madius banner will be flying proudly at Thought Bubble sequential arts festival in Leeds again.
We’ll be rocking up in the New Dock Hall, causing mayhem and mischeif as we go. We’ve also got a clutch of brand new comics which we’ll have available for the first time. As we move along the summer, we’ll be running some previews of them and we’re gonna start today with the follow up, of sorts, to The King’s Leap – Ake’s Trial.
From the same creative team of Rob Jones and Gareth Sleightholme, Ake’s Trial follows the story teased in the beginning of the King’s Leap as we follow the outsider, Ake, as he faces adversity, mistrust and charges of cowardice as he urges his village to prepare for an onslaught of giants…
We’ve got a four page preview for you to enjoy:
STORY/WORDS – Rob Jones
ART/SHADING/LETTERS/ADDITIONAL WORDS – Gareth Sleightholme
You can catch Rob, Nick Gonzo, Mike Sambrook, Brad Holman and some special arty Guests in New Dock Hall at Thought Bubble on November 5th & 6th in the Royal Armouries, Leeds. You can also catch Gareth there too, as he will be representing his comic company, Iron Shod Ape comics and generally being as VIKING as possible.
