Whatever Happened to the Time Leech?

Time Leech, illustration by Justin AbbotYou may recall earlier in the year we opened an unusual competition – with the prize the chance for an unpublished artist to illustrate a brand new Doctor Who comic strip to be featured here on Kasterborous and in the upcoming Vworp! Vworp! independent magazine.

Time Leech pits the Doctor against a bizarre creature devastating London with only some bizarre anomalies and a new friend to help him. Conceived by Christian Cawley and Brian A. Terranova, the strip was scripted by Christian with expert advice from former DWM editor John Freeman.

The winner of the Time Leech competition was Justin Abbot who has spent the intervening months juggling illustration of the strip while attending to his coursework – but finally the strip is nearing completion, with just some minor tweaks and completion of the lettering to come!

Over the next few weeks until the release of this adventure, we’ll be detailing some elements of the creative process in the form of a “production diary” as well as alerting readers to a further call for artists…

In the meantime however, spend a few moments admiring this sample of smashing artwork from Justin, and gird your loins for the rest of it, coming late Autumn…
