Here at Corvus we are very impressed with Timebomb Comics and the second in their Dick Turpin series ( This time around Dick finds himself confronted with a nest of vampire prostitutes whose goal is to rule London.

Author Steve Tanner keeps the plot moving forward with both humour and tension. His research into the period is evident though understated throughout the book. Graeme Howard’s art work is vibrant and to me reminiscent of Hogarth. Each frame is packed with little incidents and repays a third look. This is not an Ivory Merchant costume drama, it is real, earthy and immediate. The lettering was well handled by the wonderfully monikered Nikki Foxrobot, there’s a name to conjure with.

 Timebomb specialise creative, unusual titles and I think it's worth checking out all their books.
