UK – Deep Roots #1 Signing

Dan Watters signs Deep Roots #1 at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore on Wednesday 25th April from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.

Roots, once suffocating under cement, tear through the streets of London to throttle buildings.

Vegetable homunculi hold up banks with automatic weapons. There is a green and blooming world beyond our own, fighting back against the human pollutant.

We will launch a rescue mission to this Otherworld. But it is cruel and unknowable, and should we become tangled in its vines, more than cities will fall.

From Dan Watters (Limbo, The Shadow, Assassin’s Creed) and Val Rodrigues comes a story of two worlds, of myth and man, of science and fiction, and the roots they share.

Dan Watters is a London based writer who has written crime and mystery comics for various independent publishers, including his creator owned title Limbo for Image Comics, and The Shadow for Dynamite Entertainment. He has also worked on sci-fi and fantasy comics based on video games for Wolfenstein, Dark Souls, and Assassin’s Creed for Titan Comics. He is currently writing Deep Roots for Vault Comics, and Lucifer for Vertigo Comics’ Sandman Universe.

Tales From The Sea Of Thieves is narrated by three unique pirate captains the book will take a look at the world through their eyes.

UK – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Signing

Reinhard Kleist appears in conversation with David Quantick at Gosh Comics on Saturday the 14th of April, 7:30 – 9:00 PM to celebrate the launch of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book!

In his graphic biography Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, Reinhard Kleist paints an expressive and enthralling portrait of the musician, novelist, poet and actor. It is, according to Nick Cave himself, “a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World”.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book collects Kleist’s moody and expressive portraits of the musician and his band, spanning thirty years of writing, recording and live performance. Kleist also returns us to Nick Cave’s imaginative world with comic book reimaginings of “Deanna”, “The Good Son” and “Stagger Lee”.

Filled with visual delights, this record-sized art book is a kaleidoscopic portrait of Nick Cave’s wide-ranging career as a storyteller, musician and cultural icon.

Reinhart Kleist’s award-winning graphic novels include Johnny Cash: I See a Darkness, The Olympic Dream: The Story of Samia Yusuf Omar, and Castro: A Graphic Novel.

David Quantick is a writer and journalist whose recent work includes work on Veep with Armando Iannucci and How to Be a Writer: Conversations With Writers About Writing.
