Since then, we’ve updated our generous pre-order purchasers on the current status and the fact that we will be working through delivery from first order to last. We expect the process to take around 10 days in today.
In case you’re late to the party, the Time Leech is a comic strip published on Kasterborous in 2009 and 2010. Only the first part has ever been printed (as part of the first Vworp Vworp! fanzine) and following many requests for a printed version (which licensing would prohibit under normal circumstances) we opted to produce this not-for-profit limited run to raise funds for Children in Need and the Association for International Cancer Research, of which David Tennant is a patron.
Comprising three installments, the comic features the Doctor and his new companion Ruth encountering all manner of time-bending threats and also presents a “time collision” London of Silurians, Churchill and zeppelins long before The Wedding of River Song was produced…
You can find out more and order your copy via our dedicated Time Leech page. Note that eBook copies are available immediately.
As you can imagine we have a fair few orders to get through, so do please bear with us while we get everything sorted out.
