Simon Spurrier and Rachael Stott will be signing MOTHERLANDS #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 1st February from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.
In a crazed future where unhinged technologies and interconnected parallel Earths have given rise to a spectacular class of super-criminal, the most beloved celebrities aren’t actors or rock stars, but the bounty hunters who traverse an exotic multiverse in search of impossible prey!
But when the spotlight-shunning, strait-laced tracer known as Tab finds herself in an ultra-violent race for her greatest prize yet, she’s forced to work with her greatest enemy, the only person capable of IDing him: her own elderly, overbearing and hypercritical mother, who was once the most fabulous and celebrated bounty hunter of them all.
Simon Spurrier was physically born in the 80s but profiles an existential/curmudgeonly age of 103. Working as an Art Director for the BBC in the armpit of the millennium, he took an unscripted tangent into the murky depths of Making Stuff Up On Paper and has since become an award winning author and graphic novelist. His latest crime novel, A Serpent Uncoiled, was released to great critical acclaim in 2011, while his comics works includes Judge Dredd, Crossed, Gutsville, Six-Gun Gorilla and X-Men Legacy.
Rachael Stott was first published in December 2014 by IDW, pencilling and inking the Star Trek/Planet of the Apes crossover, written by Scott and David Tipton. In 2015 she won Best Newcomer at the British Comics Awards
Currently she collaborates with a variety of publishers whilst doing covers and interiors on Titan Comics’ Twelfth Doctor.
