Online Romance, Cyberbullying and Fanboys, Victorian Style – Top Comic Creators Set to Thrill at MCM Expo
Brilliant new online motion comic THE THRILL ELECTRIC won’t hit screens until October, but visitors to the MCM Expo London Comic Con will get an exclusive sneak peek at this amazing-looking series at next month’s show!
Presented in association with Hat Trick Productions and Channel 4, MCM Expo’s THE THRILL ELECTRIC panel includes writers Leah Moore and John Reppion, character designer Emma Vieceli, producer Andy Mettam and artists from brand new all-female comic book outfit Windflower Studio.
Created by the very best names in the UK comics industry, THE THRILL ELECTRIC follows teenager Emily Bennet as she takes a job at Victorian Manchester’s Electric Telegraph Company, where the exciting new technology mirrors our own internet age with romance, cyberbullying and fanboys.
Set to be released weekly in 10 parts online and on Apple mobile devices, THE THRILL ELECTRIC brings Emily’s world of Victorian Manchester to vibrant life through enhanced panels, 3D scrolling and ambient soundscapes.
Producer Andrew Mettam says: “Between them Leah, John and Emma represent some of the most exciting new talent in the British comics industry, so to have them together on the same project is a real dream signing.”
