UK – Superior Spider-Man Signing

ssm031914Writer DAN SLOTT will be signing SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN: NECESSARY EVIL, at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 19th March 6 – 7pm.

Back by popular demand – Spider-Man 2099 returns!

But when the future Spidey and the Superior Spidey clash, who will be the most superior Spider-Man in the multiverse?

It may not matter, because the end of the battle brings about a moment that will alter the world of Spider-Man and the Marvel Universe for years to come! But which Spider was responsible for this shocking change? Then, from the ashes of battle comes the first team-up between the Superior Spider-Man and the Black Cat. Felicia Hardy always cared for the Spider more than the man, but what happens when that man is Otto Octavius? And as an Osborn we haven’t seen in a while returns, Otto celebrates a milestone! Is the world ready for ‘Dr. Peter Parker’ or what he plans to do next?

Dan Slott is an American comic-book writer best known for Avengers: initiative, Might Avengers, She-Hulk and The Amazing Spider-Man. He’s currently the sole writer of the controversial Superior Spider-Man, where Peter Parker has been replaced by Doctor Otto Octavius, and the upcoming Silver Surfer. He’s renowned for injecting humour into typically serious superhero books.

UK – Chew Signing

chew7Writer John Layman signs ‘Chew’ Comics and Graphic Novels at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Monday 17th March from 6:00 to 7:00pm!

Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It’s a dirty job – and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu`s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not.

John Layman is the creator, writer and letterer of CHEW, the New York Times best-selling, Harvey Award and multi-Eisner Award winning cannibal cop comedy series from Image Comics. Layman was an editor for WildStorm Production and has written or lettered for every major publisher in comics for the last decade and a half. CHEW was the 2011 Eisner winner for Best Continuing Series, and winner of both the Eisner and the Harvey in 2010 for Best New Series. Currently, he’s finishing a run on Detective Comics for DC and working on the upcoming Batman Eternal Weekly. He’s written Aliens, Mars Attacks, Godzilla, Thundercats, Gambit, Scarface, Red Sonja, Marvel Zombies Vs.
