Thunderchair is proud to present to you… Hyper Galactic Rockstar Champion: Royal Rumble!
Our new project is out in the multiverse and we had a lil launch to celebrate.
A fling-flonging wondrous time was had by all at Cafe Kino on April 17th. Thank you all who came and saw us in the basement and picked up a copy of our new offering. As well as the book we had plenty of surround sound, audio-visual oddities for our guests to bear witness to – Hosted of course by our very own Howie and his mysterious Lucha sidekick!
Most importantly this is our first time inviting artists in to help us create the book! A special thanks to:
Thunderchair obliterates the next generation of illustrators minds!
Having all met at University aeons ago, it was only just that Thunderchair return to tell the tales of it’s magical trail. While stalling at BIF last summer we were blessed by a surprise encounter with our educator Ceri, who asked if we might return to share our story with the art school students and give a workshop, thundystyle…
Take a look at some fine imagery depicting this momentous occasion – oh what a joy! We gave our ideas about process and collaboration, before leading a fast paced comics making workshop.
Thanks to the students and tutors of Southampton Solent University for having us!
ciao for now,
flou, jou and how
‘GOOD NITE’ //
A short comic 4 u.
About terrible nightclubs.
New fully fledged comic book in the making!
Well, well, welly wellington!
What a thund-tastic year it was as the world crumbled around us into the savage abyss of unrelenting chaos.
Many tales were chronicled in the sequential narrative form once again by the Thunderchair Trifecta and we would personally like to thank everyone that read, saw, shared, binned, frisbeed or headbutted any of the fine Thundy products we have displayed, both online and at an event.
Our final two events of the year were SHAKE! Bristol and Brighton Illustration Fair (or BIF for short!). Both were rip-roaring good times and we loved seeing old friends and meeting many wondrous new thunderzoids!
Speaking of new things, we have finally released Space Time Thief 2: Cavalier Hat. Obtain the sacred text HERE!
Now, skibbidy deen, it’s 2019! Let’s join hands and summon the almighty Beelzebub together and will him to empower us to finish all the beauteous works we have in the pipeline for your mind pasties!
Plenty of announcements from the Thundyverse, gather round!

The rollercoaster of ‘Thun’ continues at a relentless pace, and the hivemind is feeling good! We had a great time last Sunday helping Ruby Hinton run her Draw Your Feelings workshop – we got to draw and hang out with some sweet sweet beings. The workshop was run off the back of the Equinox spring time exhibition here in Bristol where we exhibited some work – keep your eyelids ajar for new posters in the Thunderchair shop!
On top of this our friend and general good creature Max K of Shake has interviewed us for the latest issue of his magazine. Its the best one yet and inside you will find out what truly keeps our twisted hearts ticking. Buy your copy now HERE …
As for upcoming happenings we’ll be trading at Birmingham Comic Con next weekend (28th/29th)! – we expect to be batting away the hordes of ThunderFans from the Midlands decked out in CJ and Slug Harris cosplay. New stock will be available for purchase, not least the long awaited release of Shovelhawks Volume 1, all 3 chapters (including the never seen before Chapter 3) combined in our longest and most exhilarating story yet!

Shake at Rough Trade Bristol was a hoot hoot kachoot! Thanks to everyone who came, and everyone who visited our table and bought a tasty chunk of Thundy goodness. A gigantic, skrontacula thanks to those legendary few who scored a copy of the brand spanking new comic, CJ & Slug Harris!
Speaking of which, CJ & Slug Harris Issue 1 will be available on the Thunderchair Webshop this Sunday Feb 18th! PLUS a barrage of newness in the form of sludgilicious badges and stickers to make you pee your knickers! Hoot hoot kachoot!

To wrap this sucker up quick styler our new luxury collaborative item, created with our Thunderfriend, Crypto Spectre, will be hitting the webshop shelves, post-haste!
Another rotation cycle has been completed. The time they call “2018” came into effect, as is tradition. After experiencing this, so called 2018, for several sleeps and wakes now, Thunderchair can confirm, with haste and gumption, that this is in fact, a “New Year”. Try not to panic, we’ve done enough of that for you already. With this news upon us, it brings in tandem a string of exciting, fancy and some would say, gorgonzola, based treats for you sensory receptors. Gather supplies, mainly toilet roll, and read on.
Issue 1 of CJ & SLUG HARRIS has fully formed and taken its rightful place as priority one. Soon, if our modern systems of delivery stay true to the ancient texts, these wondrous comics shall be purchasable over on our shop! As well as at the upcoming event, SHAKE! On Sunday 11th February. If you assess your inner selves, you’ll soon find that the ONLY option is to come on that very date. You shall be rewarded with endless art goodness, all the visual stimulation you can handle, and probably many free stickers.
Along with the release of CJ & SLUG HARRIS Issue 1 and the event on February 11th, SHAKE! We have merged our conscience with a dear friend who is named, Gordon Emmanuel. With our combined essence, Gordon has produce a VERY LIMITED range of resin cast Slug Harris Figures! Neither action, nor words can express our respect for Gordon’s mighty talents and we are beyond euphoric to join forces and bring you these limited edition pieces of beauty. Be the first to observe and obtain one at SHAKE! On February 11th.
