The Time Leech

It is with baited breath that we formally launch our Doctor Who comic strip – Time Leech!

Written by Christian Cawley (that’s me) from an idea by myself and Brian Terranova, with art by the winner of our Search for a Comic Book Artist Justin Abbot, Time Leech also features letters by Colin Brockhurst and script advice from John Freeman.

Although available in the forthcoming Vworp Vworp! fanzine, Time Leech Part 1 was conceived and created with Kasterborous readers in mind – as such the 9 page story in which the Doctor acquires a new companion is available right here on Kasterborous for you to download and enjoy!

The comic strip is in a 3 MB PDF format file, and is 9 pages long – enjoy, and a Very Happy Christmas!
