Dick Turpin: The Restless DeadUK indie publisher TimeBomb Comics has gotten off to a great start in 2009 with their Dick Turpin comic listed in this month’s UK Section of Diamond Previews, making it available to order from all UK and European comic shops.

Since it debuted in September Dick Turpin and the Restless Dead has been getting some great reviews. Most recently SFX Magazine described it as “A darkly whimsical engaging read” which pretty much sums it up! (Read our review here)

“Ask your local comic shop (or shops, if you’re fortunate enough to live somewhere where there’s more than one!) to order some copies if they haven’t already done so,” urges publisher Steve Tanner.
