UK – The Legends of River Song Signing

00000000-RiverSongPress Release:

STEVE LYONS and ANDY LANE will be signing DOCTOR WHO: THE LEGENDS OF RIVER SONG at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 11th June from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

‘Hello sweetie!’

With those words, the indomitable River Song crashed into the Doctor’s life, and has stayed there ever since. Archaeologist, time-traveller, thief, and murderer, River Song has had more adventures (and got into much more trouble) than most other people in the universe. And she’s written a lot of it down. Well, when you’re (possibly) married to a Time Lord, it’s important to keep track of what you’ve done and when. Especially as it may not have happened to both of you yet. Sometimes she’s with the Doctor, and sometimes she’s on her own. But wherever and whenever she may be, she’s never far from danger… and excitement!

Steve Lyons has written nearly twenty novels, several audio dramas and many short stories, starring characters from the X-Men and Spider-Man to the Tomorrow People and Sapphire & Steel. He has also co-written a number of books about TV shows, including Cunning: The Blackadder Programme Guide and the bestselling Red Dwarf Programme Guide. His previous Doctor Who work includes the novels Conundrum, The Witch Hunters and The Crooked World, audio dramas The Fires of Vulcan and Colditz, and work for the official Doctor Who Magazine.

Andrew Lane has written more than 30 books in various genres – fiction and non-fiction, adult and Young Adult, crime and science fiction. Most recently he has been responsible for the internationally successful Young Sherlock Holmes series of novels, while the first book in his new Crusoe series will be published this year. His first novel was a licensed Doctor Who book – the Seventh Doctor novel Lucifer Rising – and he also writes Doctor Who audio dramas for Big Finish Productions.

UK – Aquaman: Rebirth #1 Signing

00000000000-Aquaman100000000000-Aquamanreibrth1

Press Release:

DAN ABNETT will be signing AQUAMAN #1 and AQUAMAN: REBIRTH #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 22nd June from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.

Aquaman returns in two fantastic new DC Rebirth titles!

In Aquaman: Rebirth, we meet Arthur Curry who walks in two worlds but can find a home in neither. The King of Atlantis looks to reconcile his split heritage as he embarks on a new mission that may finally make him choose between his two paths.

And in Aquaman #1 ‘The Drowning’, Black Manta is back, and as Aquaman attempts to broker lasting peace between Atlantis and the surface world, his greatest foe engineers a plan to destroy everything and everyone the undersea hero loves.

“As the leader of a world power,” writer Dan Abnett says, “Arthur believes it’s time Atlantis became part of the global community. Atlantis has been on the outside for too long: feared, mysterious and misunderstood. But that means getting the world used to Atlantis…and vice versa.

Dan Abnett is a novelist and award-winning comic book writer. He has written twenty-five novels for the Black Library, including the acclaimed Gaunt’s Ghosts series and the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, and, with Mike Lee, the Darkblade cycle. His Black Library novel Horus Rising and his Torchwood novel Border Princes (for the BBC) were both bestsellers.

Rob Williams has a host of comics titles to his name, including titles for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Dynamite, IDW and Com.X. He is also the writer of The Royals, Master of War for Vertigo, Judge Dredd for 2000AD, and recently was one of the writers on the ‘Into The Light’ official tie-in comic for Namco Bandai’s DARK SOULS II computer game.

Who Killed Sherlock Holmes? is a great genre crossover injecting life into the crime procedural. Thrilling and gripping, and with a clever new twist on a much-loved character, this will appeal to a host of fans ranging from police procedurals to gothic, urban fantasy, to straight-up lovers of Sherlock and beyond. Quill and his team pursue a criminal genius, who lures them into a Sherlockian maze of too many clues and too much evidence, while also battling their own, and all too real, demons. It looks like the game is afoot…

And in This Damned Band, the biggest rock band in the world thought they were only pretending to worship Satan. As they record the documentary of what might be their final world tour, they discover the horrifying truth!

Paul Cornell has been Hugo-nominated for his work in TV, comics and prose, and is a BSFA award-winner for short fiction. He has also written some of Doctor Who’s best-loved episodes for the BBC, and has more recently written for the Sherlock-inspired TV show Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu.
