UK – Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored Signing

000000000000-Judge Dredd-gosh

Press Release:

In association with the good folks at 2000AD, we’ll be hosting a signing for the release of Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored with artists Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon! The signing will be from 1-2pm on Saturday, July 16th.

When first serialised back in 1978, the Judge Dredd epic ‘The Cursed Earth’ originally included the now-infamous episodes ‘Burger Wars’ and ‘Soul Food’. These two chapters featured parodies of famous corporate characters such as Ronald McDonald and the Jolly Green Giant, and were quickly buried thanks to a litigious backlash, the settlement including an agreement that they would never be reprinted.

However, thanks to some landmark changes in UK laws in 2014 regarding copyright and parody, The Cursed Earth is now able to be printed in it’s entirety. For the first time ever, the entire storyline by Pat Mills, John Wagner, Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon is to be collected together in a single hardcover volume, including all of it’s beautiful full-colour spreads. At long last, it’s Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored!

Come along on Saturday the 16th July from 1-2pm to celebrate this long-awaited release aslegendary artists Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon will be joining us for a very special UK exclusive signing!

UK – The Legends of River Song Signing

00000000-RiverSongPress Release:

STEVE LYONS and ANDY LANE will be signing DOCTOR WHO: THE LEGENDS OF RIVER SONG at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 11th June from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

‘Hello sweetie!’

With those words, the indomitable River Song crashed into the Doctor’s life, and has stayed there ever since. Archaeologist, time-traveller, thief, and murderer, River Song has had more adventures (and got into much more trouble) than most other people in the universe. And she’s written a lot of it down. Well, when you’re (possibly) married to a Time Lord, it’s important to keep track of what you’ve done and when. Especially as it may not have happened to both of you yet. Sometimes she’s with the Doctor, and sometimes she’s on her own. But wherever and whenever she may be, she’s never far from danger… and excitement!

Steve Lyons has written nearly twenty novels, several audio dramas and many short stories, starring characters from the X-Men and Spider-Man to the Tomorrow People and Sapphire & Steel. He has also co-written a number of books about TV shows, including Cunning: The Blackadder Programme Guide and the bestselling Red Dwarf Programme Guide. His previous Doctor Who work includes the novels Conundrum, The Witch Hunters and The Crooked World, audio dramas The Fires of Vulcan and Colditz, and work for the official Doctor Who Magazine.

Andrew Lane has written more than 30 books in various genres – fiction and non-fiction, adult and Young Adult, crime and science fiction. Most recently he has been responsible for the internationally successful Young Sherlock Holmes series of novels, while the first book in his new Crusoe series will be published this year. His first novel was a licensed Doctor Who book – the Seventh Doctor novel Lucifer Rising – and he also writes Doctor Who audio dramas for Big Finish Productions.
