This has been a long time coming, mainly due to various other issues, formatting, timing and general scheduling, but I’m finally ready to publish the charity anthology version of Time Leech.
A comic strip penned by myself from an idea by me and my good friend Brian Terranova, Time Leech is a Doctor Who comic strip, the first part of which originally appeared in the Vworp Vworp! fanzine (I say fanzine, but its production values were obscenely high) back in 2009.
Subsequent installments followed on Kasterborous.com, with the end result pleasing and popular.
However on many occasions I’ve received emails from readers wondering when a print version of the strip will materialise, and with copyright considerations this is a tough thing to go ahead with.
So the obvious way around this is to issue all three parts as a charity anthology. With artwork by Justin Abbot and Rick Lundeen, lettering by Colin Brockhurst and general advice on the first part provided by British comics legend John Freeman, this is a rare chance for Doctor Who fans to own all three parts of a popular independent comic strip adventure for the Tenth Doctor (as played on screen by David Tennant).
Funds raised will be split between AICR and Children in Need, and publication of the volume will cease on the night of the latter in November 2012, so there is a narrow 7 month window in which fans can purchase copies.
We’re hoping for a couple of special copies to also be made available, but we’ll wait and see on that score…
