Highwaymen versus Zombies

The Bristol SP Expo was not just a great way to meet Kevin O'Neil, the main purpose of the event was clearly to bring Indy comics to the nation. Although I was mostly there to hawk my own wares, there was time to pick up a few efforts from fellow creators:

I really enjoyed Dick Turpin and the Restless Dead, a great period zombie one-shot from Time Bomb Comics. The script is very good and the art complements it nicely so marry that to a cast iron concept and the result really can't fail.

At the Expo we were placed next to Bearded Skull Comics, whose Dexter's Half Dozen is a fun war action strip with a supernatural twist. Not unlike Walking Wounded actually, but with a very different take on the subject matter. Really nice guys and we wish them every success.

Which brings me to the end of my SP Expo coverage. A bit sparse but there we go. For a proper show report, check out this excellent post from the Short Fuses blog.
