£185 for the Time Leech – SOLD!

We’re delighted to announce that the final copy of Time Leech has shipped to a lucky bidder on eBay, raising in the process £185 for Children in Need!

Adorned with the signature of one David Tennant, the strip – a three-part story set between The Next Doctor and Waters of Mars – was the result of a competition on Kasterborous to find a new comic strip artist. Winner (and illustrator of the first two parts) Justin Abbot went on to produce storyboards, while runner up (and illustrator of part three) Rick Lundeen is currently working on a comic book adaptation of The Daleks’ Master Plan (more on that in the New Year…!)

We must thank DT-Forum.com‘s Susan and her colleagues, and their steadfast work in not only getting two copies signed but also a third copy to Mr Tennant (to keep). We should also thank the man himself to agreeing to the sale of the books, the proceeds of which have gone towards not only Children in Need but also the AICR, of which David is a patron.

Also due thanks are the many who retweeted news of the auction yesterday, in particular @SFXMagazine and @SciFiNow.

Over the past four years, many people have been involved with Time Leech, from beginning to end, so we would like to give thanks to John Freeman, Gareth Kavanagh, Colin Brockhurst, Justin Abbot, Rick Lundeen and everyone who entered the initial competition and downloaded the original strip or saw it in Vworp Vworp #1.

On a personal note I would like to say thanks to Brian Terranova for his help in plotting the story, and to each and every one of you who has purchased a copy either in print or in PDF/CBR format.

Finally, with the final print copy now sold, the electronic copy is now unavailable.

With that, like a giant albatross, we release Time Leech into freedom, into the ether – into the void, perhaps – never to be heard from again…
