Thought Bubble, a comic book festival that started in a basement back in 2007 and has now grown to a significant event, wants to encourage more people to read comic books.
With Comic Book Drive the organisers are coordinating a donation and redistribution program. Fans can donate comic books, just 1, 100 or more (but email in for significant donations). The event will put the pre-loved comics into the hands of schools, libraries and charitable organisations across the UK.

There will be a drop-off point at the Thought Bubble itself when the comic convention runs at the Harrogate Convention Centre on the 13th and 14th of November.
Furthermore, a local store, Destination Venus, and event co-sponsor Travelling Man also take comic books, acting as drop-off points for the Comic Book Drive.

The drive will carry on until the end of the year, and you can donate at these local drop-off points until then.
