Following the successful Kickstarter campaign for Harker: The Book of Solomon Part One in 2020, Time Bomb Comics has announced the launch of Harker: The Book of Solomon Part Two, a 68 page full color volume.
From British creators Roger Gibson and Vince Danks, Harker: The Book of Solomon – Part Two concludes the first storyline of the comics series. A homage to classic television detective series such as Columbo, Morse and CSI, Harker follows the homicide investigations of Detective Chief Inspector Harker and his assistant, DS Critchley.
‘When a series of gruesome murders take place near the British Museum, DCI Harker and his assistant DS Critchley are called to London to solve the case. Middle-class Satanists, dusty bookshops, grimy old pubs, a museum labyrinth and wry, cutting humor all combine in this love letter to classic TV police dramas.
Harker is a heady mixture of Morse, Columbo, Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie, with perfectly paced storytelling, exquisitely detailed artwork and brilliant dialogue, exemplified by the chemistry between the grumpy, world-weary Harker and his easy-going, slightly unhinged assistant.’
Harker writer Roger Gibson says “I’m hugely excited by this new ongoing series of full color Harker books by Time Bomb Comics. Next up is the conclusion of The Book of Solomon, with ritual killings, spooky Satanists, and a gripping car chase, as Harker fights for his life under the British Museum. Next up is murder on the Moors in Whitby, and then a case set amongst spies in Portmeirion. It’s all good stuff, and it allows me and artist Vince Danks to indulge our love of old crime shows like Columbo and Morse, and bring them back into fashion!”
Comicon’s own Richard Bruton says “If you love a good police procedural, want to see stunning, crystal clear artwork, a story that just races along, and enjoy a dash of good old-fashioned dry comedy – Harker by Roger Gibson and Vince Danks is exactly the book you’re looking for.”
Harker: The Book of Solomon – Part Two will launch its pre-order through Kickstarter at the end of April with a release date scheduled for Summer 2021. As with all Time Bomb Comics titles this provides an opportunity to get the book at a pre-order price and with exclusive extras that will only be available through the campaign, including a limited selection of artist Vince Danks’ original penciled pages for the series.
