UK – Kim Reaper: Grim Beginnings Signing

Sarah Graley signs KIM REAPER: GRIM BEGINNINGS at Forbidden Planet Birmingham on Saturday 17th February from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

In KIM REAPER, Kim works at a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty dang cool: she’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife.

Like most university students, Becka has a super intense unrequited crush. Unlike most university students, Becka’s crush is on a beautiful gothic angel that frequents the underworld. Of course, she doesn’t know that. Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date!

But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a kiss in the bargain.

Sarah Graley is a UK based comic artist and writer, who wrote and drew the Rick and Morty comic mini series Lil’ Poopy Superstar, and creates the comic series Kim Reaper for Oni Press.

She is also known for her popular diary comic series Our Super Adventure, and is currently working on her graphic novel Glitch for Graphix/Scholastic, pencilled for release late 2018.

UK – Artemis Signing

Join internationally best-selling author ANDY WEIR signing his brand new title ARTEMIS at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 12th January from 6:00 – 7:00 pm!

Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Life in the lunar city of Artemis is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz is offered a score too lucrative to turn down – if she can plan the perfect crime – and survive it…

And in a city on the moon, there’s only one rule for criminals: don’t get caught.

ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the success of The Martian allowed him to write full-time. He is a lifelong space nerd and devoted hobbyist of subjects such as orbital mechanics and the history of manned space flight. The Martian was a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and went on to become a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon. Film rights to Artemis have already been sold to 20th Century Fox.

UK – The Silencer #1 Signing

Writer Dan Abnett will be signing THE SILENCER #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 3rd February from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

‘CODE OF HONOR’ part one!

She’s one of the DC Universe’s deadliest assassins and you’ve never heard of her. Super-strong, highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy metahuman abilities, the Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was.

After decades as Leviathan’s chief assassin, Honor Guest put in her time and managed to get out with her skin intact. Now she lives a normal life with a normal family in a normal house on a normal street.

But the past has come back to haunt her in the form of her old employer and a deadly new mission…and Talia Al Ghul won’t take no for an answer.

Dan Abnett is a bestselling author and an award-winning comic book writer. He has written over fifty novels, and his 2008 run on The Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel formed the inspiration for the blockbuster movie. He is a regular contributor to 2000AD and is the writer on Aquaman, The Titans and Earth-2 for DC Comics.

UK – Motherlands #1 Signing

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.

In Avengers, we see the first three parts of a sixteen-issue saga that will write the end of an era. The teams you know and love from Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, US Avengers and Occupy Avengers come together to face a threat beyond any they’ve faced before!

In Inhumans, the Royal Family stole fire from the gods. And the gods are angry. The fate of planet Earth once again sits in Black Bolt and Medusa’s hands. The Progenitors are here to end their experiment once and for all – and our world with it. Who will be able to stand…on Judgment Day?

With Rocket – get ready for a life of spacecrime! He’s about to end up in court in the trial of the (light) century, and there’s only one thing keeping our hero out of the iron hotel: the galaxy’s greatest lawyer, Murd Blurdock! Is he worth his fee, or will Rocket be forced to break out of prison – again?!

Al Ewing began his career writing Judge Dredd and Future Shocks for 2000AD. He’s contributed to Solar Wind, FutureQuake and The End Is Nigh, and is the creator of the comedic blog The Diary of Ralph Dibney.

Breaking into American comic books, Ewing was picked by Garth Ennis to provide a six-issue arc on Jennifer Blood, and a spin-off series The Ninjettes. Ewing’s debut novel was published in 2007 by Abaddon Books.

UK – The Warmaster Signing

Writer Dan Abnett signing GAUNT’S GHOSTS: THE WARMASTER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 16th December from 1 – 2pm!

‘After the success of their desperate mission to Salvation’s Reach, Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First race to the strategically vital forge world of Urdesh, besieged by the brutal armies of Anarch Sek. However, there may be more at stake than just a planet. The Imperial forces have made an attempt to divide and conquer their enemy, but with Warmaster Macaroth himself commanding the Urdesh campaign, it is possible that the Archenemy assault has a different purpose – to decapitate the Imperial command structure with a single blow. Has the Warmaster allowed himself to become an unwitting target? And can Gaunt’s Ghosts possibly defend him against the assembled killers and war machines of Chaos?’

The Master of War, Dan Abnett is best-known for his Horus Heresy novels and long-running series of works covering the Sabbat Worlds Crusade and the adventures of Tanith First: the famed Gaunt’s Ghosts. He has also written numerous Inquisitor novels including the Eisenhorn trilogy, and a host of other tales from the 41st Millennium and the Old World.
