UK – The Mummy: Palimpsest Signing

Writer Peter Milligan will be signing THE MUMMY: PALIMPSEST at our London Megastore on Thursday 6th July from 6:00 – 7:00 PM!

The timeless horror icon excavated for a brand new tale The first in Titan’s new collaboration with legendary Hammer Films.

Once every 34 years, members of the sinister Sect of Anubis gather to drink the blood of a human sacrifice, used as a vessel to contain the imprisoned spirit of a long dead Egyptian High Priestess called, Nebetah, thereby gaining immortality. As the time draws near for the next sacrifice, the Sect’s chosen victim, a young Ukrainian woman called Angel, has already begun to transform into Nebetah. It is a process that will see the young woman transformed into a rotting mummy as the spirit of Nebetah consumes her soul. However, there exists an ultra secret society, called the Pyramid Club, who are dedicated to eradicating the evil of the Sect. At the height of the ritual the club attack the secret headquarters of the Sect and in the confusion Angel escapes into the streets of London, half consumed by the soul of Nebetah. Forced to accept the help of Duncan, a young rising agent for the Pyramid Club society, the two of them must team up and take the fight back to the Sect of Anubis before the sands of time run out and the failed ritual claims the lives of everyone!

Peter Milligan is an award-winning London-based writer of comic books and graphic novels, published in many languages throughout the world. His work includes ground-breaking titles such as the psychedelic Shade The Changing Man and SKIN, about a skinhead suffering from the effects of Thalidomide, up to Greek Street, an homage to Greek myth seen through the prism of violent modern-day London. His work also includes the more mainstream, from Batman to the successful and critically acclaimed re-imagining of the X-Men myth: X-STATIX, described by Kevin Smith as “the most well-observed scholarly analysis of media-manipulation filtered through a pop-culture lens ever committed to the page”. He has also had two films produced: Pilgrim starring Ray Liotta and An Angel For May, starring Tom Wilkinson.

CA – Revenge of the Nerd Signing

Actor Curtis Armstrong (Revenge of the Nerds, American Dad, Better Off Dead) signs his new book at Vroman’s Bookstore on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at 7:00pm.

Risky Business. Revenge of the Nerds. Better Off Dead. Moonlighting. Supernatural. American Dad. New Girl. What do all of these movies and television shows have in common? Curtis Armstrong.

A legendary comedic second banana to a litany of major stars, Curtis is forever cemented in the public imagination as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. A classically trained actor, Curtis began his incredible 40-year career on stage but progressed rapidly to film and television. He was typecast early and it proved to be the best thing that could have happened. But there’s more to Curtis’ story than that.

Born and bred a nerd, he spent his early years between Detroit, a city so nerdy that the word was coined there in 1951, and, improbably, Geneva, Switzerland. His adolescence and early adulthood was spent primarily between the covers of a book and indulging his nerdy obsessions. It was only when he found his true calling, as an actor and unintentional nerd icon, that he found true happiness. With whip-smart, self-effacing humor, Armstrong takes us on a most unlikely journey–one nerd’s hilarious, often touching rise to the middle. He started his life as an outcast and matured into…well, an older, slightly paunchier, hopefully wiser outcast. In Hollywood, as in life, that counts as winning the game.
