In A New Team-Up, Spectrum Is Coming In April 2022

Time Bomb Comics joins Larkshead Licensing and Anderson Entertainment in new Publishing Deal

Time Bomb Comics have joined up with Larkshead Licensing and Anderson Entertainment to bring the likes of Captain Scarlet, Space Precinct and Terrahawks to a new anthology hitting Kickstarter in April 2022.

Time Bomb Comics partners with Anderson Entertainment for the new Spectrum anthology based on Gerry Anderson’s productions.

Time Bomb Comics is delighted to announce a new partnership with Anderson Entertainment in a
deal brokered by Larkshead Licensing. The first publication will be a 44-page comic anthology featuring three cult titles from the mind of prolific creator Gerry Anderson: New Captain Scarlet,
Space Precinct and Terrahawks.

Gerry Anderson’s work was a huge part of the British television landscape from the 1960s to the
1990s, and his shows remain popular with science fiction fans across the globe. The three titles
included in Spectrum span the genre from alien fighting to space-based police procedural.

Bringing them together in this anthology will create an exciting and unique comic book.
New Captain Scarlet was a reboot of the original 1960s show broadcast in the 1990s. Using CGI as an evolution of the original Supermarionation puppetry, the show followed the titular Captain
Scarlet in his battle against the invading Mysteron aliens. Terrahawks used an altered version of the Supermacromation style, refined with 1980s technology and incorporating latex hand-puppets. The series sees a ragtag group of humans defend Earth after the destruction of NASA. Finally, the 1990s Space Precinct was a live action series that incorporated puppetry in creating realistic and sophisticated alien characters. A police procedural set in space, it was known for its groundbreaking special effects.

The creative teams for the new anthology are Steve Tanner (writer), Pete Woods (artist) and James
Grey (letters) on New Captain Scarlet; Richmond A Clements (writer) and James Gray (art and
lettering) on Space Precinct; and Dan Whitehead (writer), Ste Pickford (artist) and James Grey
(lettering) on Terrahawks. The cover will be drawn by Steve Pugh known for his work at DC, Marvel, Dark Horse and 2000AD.

As a publisher focused on exciting, modern comics with an old-school feel this partnership is perfect for Time Bomb Comics. Indeed, every aspect of the publication has been personally approved by Jamie Anderson, Managing Director and CCO of Anderson Entertainment, and son of Gerry Anderson. This collaboration is also perfectly timed as it coincides with Time Bomb Comics’ 15th Anniversary Year and is an exciting development for the company.

Time Bomb Comics chief, Steve Tanner, spoke about the anthology and his hopes for the future:

“Spectrum marks the first licensed title released through Time Bomb Comics and I’m delighted it features characters and concepts that are truly warmly recognised around the world.
“Like many of my generation I grew up enjoying the television shows created by Gerry Anderson and I’m thrilled that we’ve partnered with Anderson Entertainment to create new stories featuring some of his most iconic shows.

“New Captain Scarlet, Space Precinct, Terrahawks and Time Bomb Comics – what a combination!”

Anderson Entertainment chief, writer, producer and director, Jamie Anderson added:

“Seeing these three Anderson titles getting a new lease of life is a real thrill for me. The Time Bomb team has done a fantastic job of building out the worlds, keeping an authentic feeling to the stories, and making stunning looking strips. I can’t wait for Anderson fans across the globe to enjoy these new stories”

Spectrum will be opening for pre-order sales on Kickstarter in April with publication later in 2022.
