UK – Miracleman/The Discipline Signing

000000-MiraclemanMark Buckingham and Peter Milligan at Forbidden Planet on Wednesday, 2nd March, 2016 at 6:00 PM!

Press Release:  

Join MARK BUCKINGHAM signing MIRACLEMAN VOL. 1 THE GOLDEN AGE and PETER MILLIGAN signing SOONER OR LATER and THE DISCIPLINE #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 2nd March from from 6 – 7pm!

Atop Olympus, Mark Buckingham’s MIRACLEMAN presides over a brave new world forged from London’s destruction. It is a world free of war, of famine, of poverty. A world of countless wonders. A world where pilgrims scale Olympus’s peak to petition their living god while, miles below, the dead return in fantastic android bodies. It is an Age of Miracles — but is humankind ready for it? Do we even want it? Is there a place for humanity in a world of gods? Gaiman and Buckingham delve into the lives of lonely idealists, rebellious schoolchildren and fracturing families, exploring the human constant in a changing world of gods and miracles.

000000-DisciplineIn Peter Milligan’s SOONER OR LATER, we find ourselves in Thatcher’s Britain – and Micky Swift is still on the dole. Disillusioned with his dour existence in dreary Camden, Micky’s life is suddenly turned inside out when he is plucked dragged into the 30th century as the property of one Mr & Mrs Katsbreath – a case of mistaken identity. Unwanted, trapped in the future and still unemployable, if Micky wants to return home (time travel isn’t cheap you know!), he will need to find a job!

And in DISCIPLINE #1, Melissa fall in lust with a stranger who’s an awful lot more than he seems. What appears to be a simple seduction is revealed as something much darker and more dangerous. This controversial and erotically-charged tale of sex, death, and metamorphosis begins with an explosion of carnality and weirdness.

UK – Goblins! Signing

000Goblins

BRIAN FROUD signs GOBLINS! at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 3rd December from 6:00 – 7:00 PM!

The bestselling team of artist Brian Froud and scholar Ari Berk have continued their exploration of the goblin realm, with a new and noxious version of the world-famous Goblins. For the uninformed, goblins are those maleficent creatures who cause all manner of havoc in the human realm. Now, thanks largely to Froud’s and Berk’s continuing carelessness, the viscid and largely nonsensical NEW volume has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

Among its pages are new letters of apologies and disclaimers complete with new, never-before-seen goblin art; a list of Gargle’s new titles, grants, entitlements, and responsibilities; and, sadly, much more! Also included is an envelope containing a new talisman that is guaranteed to ward off goblins.

Brian Froud is an award-winning illustrator, author, and faery authority. With his wife, Wendy, he has written Brian Froud’s Faeries’ Tales and Trolls. He is also the author of The World of the Dark Crystal and The Goblins of Labyrinth. He lives in Devon, England.
