UK – The Secret Service Signing

dg032214Press Release:

DAVE GIBBONS appears to sign THE SECRET SERVICE at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 22nd March from 3:00 – 4:00 pm!

Two masters of the form, Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, have come together to produce this remarkable new graphic novel from Millar and Hollywood director Matthew Vaughn, set in the aftermath of the 2011 riots that fractured London. The film based on the graphic novel, and directed by Vaughn, will be released in UK cinemas in March 2015.

Gary’s life is going nowhere. He lives in public housing with his mother and spends his nights carousing with his friends. But Gary’s Uncle Jack has taken a different path – one of glamour, danger and mystery. When Jack is called upon to get his nephew out of trouble one last time, their lives are going to intersect in a way neither of them could have foreseen. From the creative team of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and Matthew Vaughn (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; Snatch; Layer Cake; Stardust; Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class) comes this highly anticipated and superlative work.

Dave Gibbons is one of Britain’s finest comic artists, whose most famous work is the multi-award- winning Watchmen. Since then he has drawn series including Batman, Doctor Who, and Give Me Liberty, and has written Batman vs. Predator, Green Lantern, and World’s Finest, as well as his own graphic novel The Originals.

UK – Uber/Three Signing

uber three

Press Release:

Forbidden Planet are delighted to bring you a signing for the brand new hardcovers of UBER and THREE, both from writer Kieron Gillen! Join Kieron at the London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR, on Friday 11th April from 6 – 7pm!

In UBER, it’s April 24, 1945. The world holds its collective breath as the war is only days away from ending. Russian troops move through Germany to the final objective… Hitler himself. As those around the mad dictator crumble, the much ridiculed threats of the “Wunderwafen” materialise. A new weapon is delivered, one with unstoppable power – a weapon like no other, and with a madman pulling the trigger. The Ubers change the direction of World War II, providing a dark and uncompromising alternative history in a way that you’ve never seen.

In THREE, we return to the world of Ancient Sparta, where three Helot slaves are running for their lives – and pursuing them are three hundred of their Spartan masters. Includes cover gallery, making of material, and annotations. This story takes place during the events of 300.

UK – Nemo: Roses Of Berlin Signing

amko

Writer Alan Moore and artist Kevin O’Neill appear at Gosh! Comics to close out their British Comics Month of signings on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm! The latest comic is Nemo: Roses Of Berlin, out from Knockabout. ROB is a continuation of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, following last year’s Nemo: Heart of Ice tale, which focuses on the adventures of science-fiction brigand Janni Nemo. This time Janni has to travel to a Berlin occupied by the dictator Adenoid Hynkel to save her loved ones, who have been taken hostage by a mysterious but familiar enemy. Heavily influenced by Expressionist German Cinema of the Weimar Republic, this Nemo is a thrilling ride through shadows, totalitarian nightmares, and mechanical monsters.

Due to the sheer volume of demand at this events, Alan and Kevin will only be able to sign four items per person, and only books in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series – that way, everyone has a chance to have a chat as well as getting their LOEG books signed! Look out for a special release on the day, too.

The signing takes place on Saturday, March the 29th, and will be running from 2pm to 6pm. It is advised to get there early, as the queue tends grow to huge proportions and often has to be capped! Also please note that due to the anticipated popularity of this event, we will not be able to take reservations for signed books.
