UK – Stained #1 Signing

David Baron and Simon Bowland will be signing STAINED #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 17th June from 4:00 – 5:00 PM.

Meet Emma London.

Emma is a recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and – did we mention? – part machine.

Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t.

Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice.

Emma attempts to take down a pair of international diamond smugglers, but her story explodes forward when initially what was thought to be a hunt for a priceless painting with a record high bounty, leads her to something darker and more monstrous than she could have ever imagined.

David Baron began his career working for InColor and was subsequently hired by Wildstorm FX. Since then, his work has primarily appeared in books published by WildStorm and DC Comics. He was the primary colourist on The Authority during the Mark Millar and Frank Quitely era, spent several years colouring JLA, and has recently coloured several issues of DC Comics’ weekly series, 52.

Simon Bowland has been lettering comics for more than a decade, and is currently working for DC, Image, Valiant, IDW, Dark Horse, Dynamite, Boom, 451, Titan, Oni, and more.
