Welcome To Wessex – Ben Templesmith's New Saxploitation Comic #TBF15

20151114_104350
Over on Ben Templesmith's Patreon page, he mentions, amongst other books, that he is working on a new one shot comic called Welcome To Wessex.

I met up with Ben at Thought Bubble in Leeds and he told me that it's what he calls a "saxploitation" comic book, nothing to do with the instrument, but Saxons. Vs. Vikings and other challenges.

Wessex was an inependent Saxon kingdom in England from the 6th to the 10th century and were repeated invaded by the Danes in the ninth. Looks like it might get a bit bloody… time for Ben Templesmith to break out the splatter ink…

And its existence – and other projects – are funded by the good folk on Patreon
