Rebellion Releases — 9 November 2022

Thought Bubble is just around the corner and Rebellion returns with panels, signings, and more at the two-day convention in Harrogate!

The annual celebration of comics and comic culture is taking place at the Harrogate Convention Centre on 12th and 13th November.

Along with signings from Jamie McKelvie (Captain Marvel, The Wicked & The Divine), Pye Parr (Intestinauts), and Ramzee (2000 AD Regened), the 2000 AD writer and artist talent searches return to the in-person show again this year, with would-be droids battling it out in front of two panels of top creative judges deciding who wins paid work with the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!

We are delighted to announce that Gerry-Finley Day, the co-creator of Rogue Trooper, The VCs, and Harry Twenty on the High Rock, will be our guest of honour this year. He will be signing at the 2000 AD booth (Booth #4, Redshirt Hall) from 3.45pm-4.15pm on the Saturday, where copies of The Best of Gerry Finley-Day will be available to purchase. And on the Sunday morning, Gerry will be taking part in a Q&A session at the Mercer Art Gallery, close to the convention centre. Running from 11am-12noon and hosted by 2000 AD‘s Michael Molcher, there are just 20 seats available for this special event, which will be first-come-first-served and open to weekend/Sunday Thought Bubble ticket holders only.

And this year sees a special Sunday morning workshop for kids, with writer Ramzee helping the comic creators of the future make the best sci-fi comic ever!
