OR logo


Since the release of Villainous issue one, OR Comics are cropping up in different great sites with reviews and interviews. The Facebook page has also gathered more popularity and some readers have provided feedback of their own! Here is an omnibus, if you will, of OR in the media.


Hot of the heels of Thought Bubble 2010, The OR Team gave two promotional interviews on Villainous!


The first one, thanks to David Monteith of the site and podcast Geek Syndicate, is a 30 second promotion clip by writer Gary Chudleigh, done right from the OR table at Thought Bubble.

The talented journalism crew of TB Life 24, Nick Thompson and Rosie K. Stoker, also had a chat with the OR Team when covering Thought Bubble for the Leeds Film Festival. Check out our interview and more.
