UK – NOS4R2 Signing

00N0S4R2JOE HILL will be signing NOS4R2 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Tuesday 20th October from 6 – 7pm.

Charlie Manx burned a man to death in his black 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith, but that’s not the worst of it. Rumour has it that he kidnapped dozens of children, taking them to a place he calls “Christmasland.” The only child ever to escape was a very lucky girl named Victoria McQueen.

Vic has a gift – she can ride her bike through the Shorter Way bridge and she’ll come out the other side wherever she needs to be, even if it’s hundreds of miles away. Vic doesn’t tell anyone about her ability; no one would understand.

When Charlie Manx finally dies after years in prison, his body disappears…after the autopsy. The police and media think someone stole it, but Vic knows the truth: Charlie Manx is on the road again…and he has her Joe Hill is the premier horror and supernatural writer of his generation with a slew of awards for his books and short fiction. His previous two novels won him international acclaim and his hugely successful comic series Locke and Key has been a smash hit. His novel ‘Horns’ has been turned into a movie with ‘Woman in Black’ and Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in the lead.

UK – Russian Olive To Red King Signing

00-RORK_COVER

Stuart and Kathryn Immonen will be signing their graphic novel Russian Olive To Red King at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Monday 19th October at 5:30 PM.

When your lover may be dead, how long can you hold on to what remains? To whatever is left of you?

A plane crash, a package, her dog, her voice. A notebook, his writer’s block, and heat-distorted summer memories of a search for Jumbo the Elephant and an absent father.

Stuart Immonen’s credits include artwork for such titles as All-New X-Men, Superman: Secret Identity, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Nextwave: Agents Of H.A.T.E. He is currently working on Star Wars for Marvel.

Kathryn Immonen produced the graphic novel Moving Pictures with Stuart. She has written a number of titles including Runaways, Heralds, Wolverine and Jubilee and Journey Into Mystery, in which she made the transition from Loki to Sif as the main character. Her most recent title is Operation S.I.N: Agent Carter.

UK – Jupiter’s Circle/Chrononauts Signing

Press Release:

Multi award-winning writer Mark Millar is on a tour to celebrate the release of the Chrononauts and Jupiter’s Circle paperbacks, and he’s coming to Gosh! Mark will be here Saturday 31st October from 1-2pm so cancel your plans and mark those calendars!

He doesn’t really need an introduction, but just in case you hadn’t heard, Mark Millar is the mastermind behind smash hit comics Kick-Ass and Wanted. Both these skewed takes on the classic superhero movie have been made into successful films and were sold to Hollywood before the first issue even hit the stands! But his genius doesn’t stop there: he’s also the co- creator of Jupiter’s Legacy with artist Frank Quitely, he’s revamped the X-Men, brought Captain America into the 21st Century, launched a number one Spider-Man title and made Superman a communist. And of course his reinvention of the Avengers laid the groundwork for what would become some of the highest grossing films of all time. His latest book Chrononauts, melds the mission of NASA with a group of rogue time travellers. The four issue series, with art by Sean Murphy, debuted in March from Image Comics and you can bet there’s a movie on the way. And Jupiter’s Circle, the Jupiter’s Legacy prequel drawn by Wilfredo Torres and Davide Gianfelice, continues to break new ground. We’re extremely excited about the release of Chrononauts Volume 1 and Jupiter’s Circle Volume 1 in trade paperback and we cant wait to be joined by Mark here at Gosh!

Chrononauts Volume 1 hits the shelves in September and Image comics says it’s ‘A bromance for the ages! Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are two buddies who love to have fun. They’re also scientific geniuses. When their research leads them to a time-traveling adventure, will they use their knowledge for the good of all mankind? Or use the space-time continuum for their own ends? This is the story of man’s first, televised steps through the time-stream and everything going wrong in the process.’

Jupiter’s Circle Volume 1 will be released in October. ‘The most celebrated superheroes in mid-century America seem to have it all— fame, riches, adoration—but tensions simmer beneath the glossy surface, threatening to crack open the secrets behind their public AND private exploits. Before the family dynasty in JUPITER’S LEGACY began, there was JUPITER’S CIRCLE—a story about a team whose personal dramas collide with super-powered spectacle!’

The signing will get underway from 1-2pm on the 31st of October. If you can’t make it along to see Mark but you want a signed copy, then drop a line to info@goshlondon.com and we’ll arrange for a copy to be popped aside for you. Postage in the UK is a flat rate of £5 and quotes for international shipping are available on request.

UK – Darwyn Cooke Signing

00uk-dcooke

Writer/artist Darwyn Cooke makes a rare UK appearance at Gosh! Comics on Wednesday the 21st of October! Not only will he be doing a signing from 6:00 – 7:00 PM but he’ll also be giving a talk at 7:30 – 9:00 PM.

Darwyn Cooke broke into the superhero scene by working on those classic crime fighting capers such as the Justice League in the modern DC classic The New Frontier and Batman. Darwyn hasn’t just illustrated superheroes for comics but he’s also drawn them for the screen, as a storyboard artist on The New Batman/Superman Adventures animated series. But you might also know his classic cinematic style from his work that gravitates more towards crime like his classic run on Catwoman with Ed Brubaker or his graphic novel adaptations of Donald Westlake’s Parker novels.

Darwyn’s latest project Twilight Children is a new mini-series written by legendary comics creators Gilbert Hernandez. They’ve teamed up to create this exciting surreal project which will launch in October.

Presented in conjunction with The Lakes International Comic Art Festival for making this event possible. The third Lakes International Comic Art Festival will run from 16-18 October 2015 in Kendal, Cumbria, and will be celebrating great comic art from across the world. Tickets are available for the festival at the link…
