Thought Bubble Exclusives: DC Comics’ Young Animal And Mondo Team-Up

by Oliver MacNamee

Okay, okay, so with the release of these exclusive prints from Mondo and DC Comics, I’m preparing for an expensive weekend at Thought Bubble. More expensive than I would have liked, but hey, it is nearly the end of the comic-con season and where else have I got the chance of a Mondo Doom Patrol print that I could also have signed by Gerard Way too, as a guest of the con. That, and the Young Animal/Gerard Way Record Store Day 12″ release. I just hope I remember to pack my Doom Patrol comics too.

By the time I get there on the Saturday morning, I fear the best may have been snapped up. But, the chances of me staying sober enough Friday night at the 2000AD Juve Cube Party is very doubtful. Damn you alcohol. So, Mondo, if you do want to put aside a Doom Patrol print, I’ll love you all forever. (Well, it’s worth a try, right?)

In celebration of Young Animal’s 1-year anniversary this September, we will have silkscreen posters for all four of the titles available at Thought Bubble featuring DOOM PATROL by Tula Lotay, SHADE THE CHANGING GIRL by Matt Taylor, CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell and MOTHER PANIC by Jay Shaw. Several of the YA creative powers will be in attendance at Thought Bubble, so definitely stop by and say hi — and read the books! Seriously, they’re amazing.

Anyway, here’s hoping. Just take a look at the while range of exclusives on offer next weekend only at Thought Bubble.
