Press Release – Time Bomb Comic at BICS 2009


It’s that time again!

Leicester-based Time Bomb Comics will once again be exhibiting at BICS, and will be marking the occasion with the release of the 100-page original graphic novel The Furies, written by Steve Tanner with artwork by Andrew Dodd.

A release quite literally more than twenty years in the making, The Furies is a dark apocalyptic tale of the nature of belief and is one of the earliest stories the two creators worked on together. Revised and expanded (imagine a director’s cut of a movie that was never properly released in the first place!) The Furies is the first graphic novel to be released from the two year old company.

Time Bomb Comics will also have previews available of a few of their forthcoming projects including:

Bomb Scares – An anthology that promises disturbing horror stories in a twisted vein, featuring work from brand new talent such as Katja Lindblom and Rachele Aragno to established creators Gary Crutchley and Shane Oakley.

London Calling – Ealing Studios meets Hammer Horror in a uniquely British one-shot featuring art by well-known “Commando” artist Keith Page.

Primetime – An outrageous murder mystery in a media-obsessed future city where everyone wants their fifteen minutes of fame, written by Steve Tanner with art from talented newcomer Paul Thompson.

Of course, all of Time Bomb Comics previous one-shot releases will be available at BICS 2009 too, including their full-colour one-shot The Sisterhood by Steve Tanner and Dan Barritt. Released at the Bristol Expo earlier this year, The Sisterhood was described by respected British comics news site as being “easily on a par with some of the best of the early 2000AD stories.”

Last but not least, Time Bomb Comics will also be looking for new talent for future projects and will be more than happy to speak with any aspiring writers and artists over the entire weekend.

See you at BICS 2009!
