Defiant! New Viking Epic from Time Bomb Comics
« on: 15 April, 2015, 04:50:33 PM »
My new comic, Defiant is being launched a The Comics Festival, Birmingham this weekend. I can’t make it there myself but Andy Winter will be there to sign copies and chat. Here’s what it’s all about:

On August 10, 991AD, a fleet of 93 Viking longships containing 3,000 men sailed up the River Pant in Essex to the fortified town of Maldon. Led by the king of Denmark himself – Sweyn Forkbeard – the Norsemen aimed to ransack the town, kill as many of its inhabitants as they could and, most importantly, raid the Royal Mint stationed there.

Brithnoth, an old soldier who was also the Earl of Essex and one of the most powerful men in England, assembled a small army and prepared to stand defiant against the coming onslaught. His deeds that day would be immortalised in a famous poem – The Battle of Maldon – and continue to cause furious debate more than a thousand years later…

Defiant: The Legend of Brithnoth is a hard-hitting, 90 page full colour historical adventure from writer Andy Winter (Hero Killers), artist Daniel Bell (Psircus) and colourist Aljosa Tomic (Veil).


If you can’t make it to Birmingham this weekend, you can also buy it over on my Comicsy page http://www.comicsy.co.uk/danielbellcomics/ where, for a limited time only,  it’ll be on sale at the convention special of £12 (normally £14.99).

Check out the Facebook Page for more details and previews of the art: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Defiant-The-Legend-of-Brithnoth/1603308483238283?fref=ts
