VS Comics at Thought Bubble

TB2013LOGO-blog

We’ve finally had enough time to reflect on another great Thought Bubble.  We’d like to thank the entire Thought bubble team who – as usual – did a fantastic job orchestrating the UK’s premier comic festival. We had an awesome time and got to meet and chat with a lot of cool people. Thanks to everyone who popped by and we hope that everyone who picked up Day and Night and/or Eponymous thoroughly enjoyed them!

Here’s a great little video by Joe Edwards (filmage.co.uk) of Thought Bubble.

And you can check out some behind the scenes photos of the VS team over on our Facebook page here

Space Bastards – Artist Spotlight

We’re delighted to introduce Si Clark, who is a freelance illustrator and animator. Si is going to be taking up artistic duties on Space Bastards. Si has already gone about bringing some of Paul Alexander’s characters to life. How great are these guys?

Space-BastardsSpace Bastards will be appearing in the digital pages of VS Comics very soon, but for now why not read up on Si: Si Clark is based in London and spends most of his time working on a variety of projects including animated music videos, album covers, illustrations for magazines and children’s books. He is obsessed with texture and working with a balance of light and dark. His passions in life are music, film and art and his life revolves around them.

Creator Focus – Josh Sherwell

banner copyWe’re absolutely delighted to be featuring Josh Sherwell’s PI Charles in upcoming issues of VS Comics.

Josh is fresh out of Uni (Bournemouth Arts University to be exact) and is now looking to pursue his love of comics with PI Charles. Josh immediately won us over, at VS Comics, with his unique world and style of storytelling. We’re sure that you guys are going to love Charles just as much as we do, and you can expect to see a lot of him in VS Comics!

Cover

 

Here’s the blurb:

Charles is a robot (and private detective), driven by his programming to compulsively solve mysteries. His business gets him into all sorts of trouble, some absurd (punching a mutant gorilla in the face) and some dark (prostitute murder, anyone?).

He has a habit of blundering through cases, unable to comprehend the human side of things, all while believing he’s in a Raymond Chandler novel.

 

PI Charles debuted in VS Comics #7, with the twenty-one page story ‘Case 30: PI Charles VS Internet Porn’.

Shiver – Art Preview

Shiver

 

Michael Lee-Graham has just sent over the pages for the first part of Shiver (written by Kevin Lehane) and it’s so good that we just had to share a page with you!

Shiver is a multi-part action horror comic set in Antarctica on Christmas Eve, a time when the sun never sets and the continent is a hive of scientific activity. At the bottom of the world, far from all other outposts, an isolated crew of a cutting edge British Antarctic Survey station named ‘Aurora’ uncover a hostile alien life form within the ice and soon it’s multiplying and hunting the only prey the ice has to offer: the crew of Aurora. With the entity moving undetected beneath the snow and snatching crewmates one-by-one, the situation quickly escalates as an ill-equipped group is left in a desperate fight for survival!

Shiver will be gracing the digitally pages of VS Comics very soon! Be warned, this is one to watch out for!
