Dick Turpin Rides Again!

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. This year's Thoughtbubble looks to be a spectacular, mushrooming into a two hall, two day convention that seems to be now the definitive British comics event of the year. Certainly it's now the show we look forward to the most and are delighted to officially launching a book there for the first time this year. Steve Tanner will also be part of Thoughtbubble's Everything You Wanted To Know About Self Publishing panel that's taking place at 11.00am on Saturday morning hosted by Matthew Sheret, so hopefully will see some of you there!

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. This is the first time we have ventured outside of the UK to be at a show so are looking forward to it immensely. Those lucky enough to have attended previous Malta shows have had a blast, and it's a great way to end our 2011 convention season!

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.
