We're so excited to have Matthew Rosenberg @ashcan.press with us at the Thought Bubble comic con this year! Recently announced as the new writer of UNCANNY X-MEN, as well as having written ASTONISHING X-MEN, THE PUNISHER, PHOENIX RESURRECTION, NEW MUTANTS, ROCKET RACCOON and SO many others, he really is a huge talent with a lot of amazing comics under his belt! And those are just the ones he's written for Marvel! He is also the writer of WE CAN NEVER GO HOME and 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK. He also says if you come to #TBF18 he will be happy to talk about Wu-Tang clan, punk rock, your dog (ps: please bring photos of your dog), and chocolate milk from M&S. Personally, I've got a really big soft spot for anyone who's had anything to do with X-Men. I know lots of us have that one comic we discovered when we were kids that made us feel like it was ok to be our own unique kind of weird, and X-Men did that for me. I still get weirdly emotional about it whenever I read the comics or watch the '92 cartoon (I have them all on ye olde DVD).
[Image description: Image 1 is the cover of Matthew's comic 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK. Most of the image is taken up with a large, beigey orange brick wall. In the bottom right corner, 4 kids (foreshadowing!) are hanging out on the pavement. On the left is a girl in a white shirt with a purple skirt and a pink sweatshirt tied around her waist. She has her arms folded. The second from the left is a tall boy with black hair, a brown shirt and tight orange jeans. He is looking nonchalant. The boy second from the right is sitting on the kerb, with black hair, thick glasses and a yellow shirt with a black tie and black suspenders, and brown trousers. The person on the right has short curly ginger hair and a pink shirt over a pink tshirt, with beige chinos. He is holding up a yoyo which has its string all tangled up. Image 2 is a picture of my dog, for Matthew Rosenberg.]
