Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague to Launch at Thought Bubble Festival

So with the MCM Expo in our rear view mirror we can now look forward to the jewel in the indie con circuit that is The Thought Bubble Festival. If you have anything that will be launching at the show then feel free to send us a press release/info and we will see that we can do about giving it a mention.

First up the guys over at Time Bomb Comics are launching their follow up to Dick Turpin and the Restless Dead a one shot which I thoroughly enjoyed. This newest title featuring the legendary highwayman is Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague. I saw the proof copy of this that Steve was showing off at MCM and it’s looking very pretty indeed.

From the hanging tree at Tyburn to the pleasure houses of Pall Mall, there’s only one thing stopping the notorious highwayman Dick Turpin leaving 18th Century London and returning to the open road – a nest of vampire prostitutes eager to spread their Crimson Plague!

Time Bomb Comics is delighted to announce that their next release, Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague, is being released internationally as well as in the UK.

Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague is being launched at the Leeds Thoughtbubble weekend of the 19th & 20th November, where the creative team will be conducting a mid-day signing session at the Time Bomb Comics table on the Saturday afternoon.

One week later, Steve Tanner and Time Bomb Comics will be at the Malta Comic-Con taking place in Valletta, Malta over the weekend of 26th & 27th November to launch the book internationally.

The long-awaited follow-up to the critically acclaimed one-shot Dick Turpin and the Restless Dead,  Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague features the notorious highwayman up against a nest of vampires in 18th Century London.  Once again written by Steve Tanner, this second horrors and highwaymen mash-up from the Birmingham based company features artwork from rising star Graeme Howard – who is currently drawing Cy Dethan’s Cancertown 2 for Markosia – and lettering by the talented Nikki Foxrobot.

Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague also contains The Rogues Gallery featuring exclusive Dick Turpin artwork from Keith Page, Stuart Tipples, Simon Wyatt, Alex Thompson, Josceline Fenton and Glenn Jones.

It has also been confirmed that Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague will be available to order in the December 2011 Diamond Previews Catalogue.
