    UK – Grandville Noel Signing

    bt-fpukBryan Talbot signs GRANDVILLE NOEL at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 26th November from 6:00 – 7:00 pm!

    NO BADGER DOES IT BETTER!

    With his trusty adjunct, Detective Sergeant Ratzi, away for Christmas, there’s no holiday for Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard as he embarks on an investigation into the disappearance of his housekeeper’s niece, Bunty Spall. The trail leads to a growing religious cult, where a charismatic unicorn messiah and his con men cronies, already responsible for mass murder in the United States, are about to lead a crusade for the ethnic cleansing of the French Empire’s doughfaces – the derogatory nickname for humans used by the majority, animal-headed population. Teaming up with Chance Lucas, a gun-slinging operative of the Pinkerton Detective Agency, and reigniting his steamy love affair with the voluptuous Parisian badger prostitute Billie, LeBrock clashes with both cult fanatics and doughface terrorists, uncovering in the process a centuries-old religious conspiracy that threatens to plunge the world into bloody civil war.

    With Paris in the grip of the mysterious crime lord, Tiberius Koenig, and an increasingly violent backlash by human extremists, can LeBrock stop the seemingly inevitable slide into fascism? What is the secret of the legendary True Gospels? Can he rescue Bunty Spall from the clutches of the strangely hypnotic unicorn named Apollo? But does Bunty want to be saved? And will LeBrock be back in time for Christmas dinner?

    Bryan Talbot has worked on such underground comics, science fiction and superhero stories as Judge Dredd and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Vertigo titles including Sandman, Hellblazer, and Fables and has written and drawn several Eisner Award-winning graphic novels.

    DE – Fables Signing

    BW090414

    Press Release:

    Bill Willingham, the man who created Fables, one of the most loved and revered titles to hit comic book stands since Sandman, is coming to our area.

    On September 4, Willingham will be at Captain Blue Hen Comics in Newark, Delaware from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. He will be meeting with fans, signing comics and talking about the quickly approaching finale of Fables, which is scheduled to come to a conclusion with issue #150.

    As everyone knows, Willingham’s career has encompassed more than just Fables. He was also the creator and writer of the fondly remembered book The Elementals as well as the DC Comics series Shadowpact and Day of Vengeance. But it’s safe to say everyone will be talking about Fables, the long running critical and commercial hit that has enchanted fans since the first issue. With the series coming to a close, here is your chance to tell Willingham what the series has meant to you and why it’s so special.

    Captain Blue Hen Comics will have plenty of Fables books on hand as well as back issues and everything a comic book fan would need or want. So make your plans now and get your books ready. Bill Willingham doesn’t make it to the east coast that often, and who knows when it might happen again once Fables ends.
