Countdown to Bristol International Comic & Small Press Expo 2010 – Day 10 ‘Time Bomb Comics ’

I thought for today I’d focus on a press release from the guys at Time Bomb Comics. I picked up Dick Turpin and the Restless Dead I think at the last Bristol con and I loved it so I’ll be giving the follow up a look see with potential purchase I reckon. I also like the sound of a few of their new titles as well.

If you get the chance and this is your first Bristol Con I would heartily recommend you stop by the Time Bomb table as Steve and Suzanne are just a great laugh and typify what’s great about the social aspect of the con.  We were  lucky enough to be parked next to Time Bomb with our own table one year and had a whale of a time with them.

Anyway check out what the guys are going to have at Bristol this year. Oh and trust me the photo of Steve’s Jacket does not do it justice people. Trust me that bad boy piece of clothing attire could burn out your retinas at thirty paces and it’s one of the reasons I now wear glasses.


Following their recent move from Leicester to Birmingham and in advance of the forthcoming Bristol Comics Expo, Time Bomb Comics are delighted to be able to announce a number of forthcoming one-shots and graphic novels currently in development:

Written by Stephen Walsh, Artwork by Keith Page
There’s vampires afoot in London’s Highgate Cemetery – and only secret agent Charlotte Corday and the garlic-toting, stake-swinging coppers of the Metropolitan Police’s V-Squad can stop them! Channelling the spirit of traditional British adventure comics from yesteryear, with a dose of Hammer horror and Ealing Studios thrown in, London Calling features classic black and white storytelling from respected “Commando” artist Keith Page.

London Calling is due for release October 2010.

SKYLARK Graphic Novel
Written by Jonathon Darque, Artwork by Katja Lindblom
In the realms of supernatural investigations in the 19th Century Skylark is legendary. A true adventurer from a bygone age, a Man’s Man and somebody who left more mysteries behind when he disappeared without a trace. In the aftermath of The Great War his son Gabriel has enjoyed a less than stellar reputation – labelled a fraud by the press and a disappointment by his father’s peers. Yet it is Gabriel who on a routine investigation finds himself suffering for his father’s sins and only he can turn back a threat older than time itself. Skylark – It’s only Heaven for some…

Written by Alec Robertson, Artwork by Bruce McLaren
When the Great War began Private Doherty joined the Seaforth Highlanders wanting to do his bit for King and Country, just like any other ordinary man. But ordinary men shouldn’t have to face to horrors of the trenches and the grim battlefields of the Somme. Fed up with fighting but with nowhere to go, Private Doherty joins a deserter regiment – a rag-tag unit of men from all sides just trying to survive. Based on historical facts, Angels Of The Somme features the fascinating story of the forgotten deserter regiments of World War One.

Written by Alex De-Gruchy, Artwork by Giorgio Ianotti, Colour Artwork by Rebecca Labor
Glory, Nevada. 1871. When Henry Holden took what was rightfully his from the corrupt and ruthless landowner named John Kelly, Sheriff David Samuels was sent after him. Three weeks later, Samuels rides back into Glory with a dead man on his horse and a weight on his soul he knows he can never shake off. Kelly is happy that all is once again as it should be in his town. But he’s wrong. Sheriff Samuels knows he has damned himself – he isn’t looking for any kind of redemption. But with innocent blood on his hands and a tin star on his chest he no longer deserves to wear, Samuels knows that one way or another, a reckoning is coming. And if it’s one that costs him his life, well, that’s just fine with him…

Written by Steve Tanner, Artwork by Andrew Dodd
The long-awaited follow up to the popular and critically acclaimed Dick Turpin and the Restless Dead one-shot released from Time Bomb Comics in 2008!
Notorious highwayman Dick Turpin and his associate Tom King the gentleman thief are living the high-life in nineteenth century London. But Turpin’s getting itchy feet and their coin is getting low, so there’s just time for one last job before hitting the roads again. Who could have known that the upmarket brothel they decide to rob is infested with the curse of the Crimson Plague?
See you tomorrow and remember if you want something included in the countdown give us a shout!
