Not only will October 14th be the date of the excellent Nottingham Comic Convention (more on that soon), but it will also be the anniversay of one of the small press scene’s most charming publishers – Steve Tanner and Time Bomb Comics willbe celebrating a decade of small press and to celebrate this, will be releasing a revived version of their first ever book. We step bak in time with Steve to find out why!

Pirates, highwaymen and clockwork soldiers, set in the 18th century – it’s a pretty unique premise for an indie book and it’s why Steve Tanner’s Flintlock is one of the most interesting reads on the small press scene. Keen to find out why he set his book in the 1700s and the merits of a great female lead, we caught up with Steve to find out more.
