Comic - Madius go Mad(ius) at Thought Bubble

Thoughtbubble

Saturday 14th November marks the start of Thought Bubble Sequential Arts Festival's annual two day comic con event and our friends at Madius Comics are going to be there...

Madius Comics are exceptionally proud to be exhibiting at Thought Bubble in only their second ever convention appearance.  Following on from a fantastic day at Nottingham Comic Con, they will be kicking up a party atmosphere in the New Dock Hall, at table 78 where they will have several new books debuting, as well as rumours of stickers, prints... and maybe cake.

Among the new books available on the day are 50 Signal #2, Papercuts and Inkstains #3a and #3b and the first Horrere collection. There are also a couple of one-shot books hitting the shelves for the first time with The Kings Leap and Funk Soul Samurai.

Kings Leap

The Kings Leap is "Heavy Metal distilled into a comic book form" and follows the exploits of Gulbrand and his band of Viking warriors as they bid to rid the land of a curse, an evil older than time and more wicked than any of the brave shield brothers could imagine. From Madius Comics own Rob Jones (Papercuts and Inkstains, Ramlock) and Ironshod Ape Comics Gareth Sleightholme (Red Corsair, The Cthulhiad), this story mixes Norse folklore and heavy metal as we follow the shield brothers descend into the heart of a sinister mountain, fraught with danger at every turn.

Funk Soul Samurai

Funk Soul Samurai on the other hand is "the greatest MTV cartoon never made". The worlds of early-90s fashion and post-apocalyptic action movies collide in this hyper-violent vignette. A book with no words, no language barrier, just action. From writer/artist Nick Gonzo comes a silent comic full of blood, guts and hipster cool. Unrelenting (until it stops). Unceasing (until it ends). "This ain’t your Grandma’s Samurai, it’s the: FUNK SOUL SAMURAI"

Ahem.

If you can't attend Thought Bubble this weekend, you will be able to buy all the new releases after the event via the Madius Big Cartel page.
