ADRIFT - Launching at Thought Bubble

Hello hello,

Only stopping by quickly, I've got things to do and I'm sure you do too.

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I finally got my act together enough to register for Thought Bubble this year, and was graciously accepted. While I had hoped to launch The Floating Hand there, that's taking a little longer than planned; writing a graphic novel is a very different kettle of fish to putting a one-shot together, so I'm just trying to get it looking its best before I unveil it. It's coming soon, I am presently on the back stretch. The wait is nearly over (you can always read chapters one and two to make do for now).

Anyway, Thought Bubble's a big deal, and I thought it would be nice to have something new to show you. To that end, I present my newest one-shot, Adrift, which will be launching at Thought Bubble.

Adrift is a short comic about what becomes of the world two years after all the gravity instantaneously and inexplicably goes away. Societal order has collapsed, and Adrift is the story of those that are left. It may not sound it, but it is another kitchen-sink weirdo-realism comedy in the vein of Bald.

It's 40 pages long, stark black and white throughout, and is A6 size (small, but perfectly formed), printed on beautiful silk stock. It will be for sale at my table at Thought Bubble for £2. Once Thought Bubble is finished, it will be available on my website for the same price.


Additionally, because it's new (and - I feel - that a lot of the jokes depend on the page turns), I'm not putting it up in full on the publications page for now. Maybe I will one day. Who knows. But for now, I would obviously implore you to pick up a copy at Thought Bubble, or order a copy from the website once it has been released. I think the physical edition is worth it.

Thank you for reading, and thank you all for your kind words and support in the past year; this has been my "rookie year" in comics, and it's gone better than I could have hoped for. Once Thought Bubble is out of the way, I'm going to write an extended blog post containing my most powerful thoughts (never before released) on my first year in indie comics, in the hopes that it will be of some use to people who are in the position I was in one year ago. A lot has happened, so I'm sure there will be plenty to discuss.

Your friend,

John Tucker
