UK – FVZA Signing

Comments Off

David Hine signs on Thursday September 2nd from 6 – 7pm.

Forbidden Planet is pleased to announce a signing by DAVID HINE. He will be signing FVZA: THE FEDERAL VAMPIRE AND ZOMBIE AGENCY at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 2nd September from 6 – 7pm.

Landra always knew that Vampires and Zombies were real. Trained to fight since childhood by her grandfather, legendary Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency operative Hugo Pecos, she was ready. Even though both viruses were – apparently – eradicated and the F.V.Z.A. officially disbanded, Landra knew they would be back. Little did she realise that when the Vampires did come out of hiding they would use a deadly new weapon – an incurable strain of the zombie virus. Now Picos and Landra (along with her brother Vidal) have been tasked to re-instate the agency and train a new batch of operatives to target the most dangerous Vampire they’ve ever known – Landra and Vidal’s own grandmother!

David Hine has been working in comics since the 1980s, working on everything from 2000AD to Image Comics’ Spawn to TokyoPop titles to Marvel’s X-Men. As well as the back-and-white horror comic Strange Embrace, he’s probably best-known for Silent War, a six-issue mini-series with art by Frazer Irving. More recently, he’s written the Arkham Asylum one-shot for the Batman” Battle for the Cowl event – which, in turn, created the mini-series Arkham Reborn.

Thirteen mystical Artifacts, including the Witchblade, the Darkness and others, guide the fate of the Top Cow Universe. For centuries, it’s been whispered that bringing together all 13 Artifacts would herald mankind’s destruction. But a mysterious figure has been manipulating events, laying plans to put Armageddon into motion. The final phase begins here, with the abduction of Hope, the daughter of Sara Pezzini and Jackie Estacado. What ensues will remake the entirety of the Top Cow Universe, from the Witchblade and the Darkness, to the Angelus, Magdalena, and countless others. Artifacts #1 is the perfect place for faithful readers to see their loyalty pay off, and for new readers to experience the Top Cow Universe. And this exquisite variant cover is the perfect way to commemorate a trip to Comic-Con International.

Bringing together writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and artist Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer) for the first time.
