UK – Doctor Who Day 2015 Signing


Nick Abadzis, Al Ewing, and Rob Williams appear for Titan Comics’ Doctor Who Day at the Forbidden Planet Megastore on Saturday 15th August 1 -2pm!

Signing Doctor Who 10th Vol. 1 Revolutions of terror, Doctor Who 11th Vol. 1 After Life and Doctor Who 11th Vol. 2 Serve You

In Revolutions of Terror, the Doctor thought he was done with new companions after Donna’s tragic exit – but that was before he met Gabriella “Gabby” Gonzalez during an incursion of psychic parasites in Brooklyn, New York! Now she’s traveling the cosmos as the Doctor’s latest companion – and life couldn’t be more exciting! Battling invisible creatures on the Day of the Dead, uncovering a galactic conspiracy in the universe’s most famous art gallery – the only downside is the constant threat of death!

In After Life, Alice Obiefune was at her lowest ebb when the Doctor burst into her life; she’d lost her mother, her job, and her apartment. But it didn’t take much of the Doctor’s compassion to get her on board the TARDIS, rediscovering the beauty in life, one time-lost adventure at a time! From tackling an alien pet in the streets of London, to exposing a devilish mystery in the 1930s Bayou; from discovering the truth behind an austerity-hit pleasure planet to facing a shapeshifting horror in a scientific research station – every day with the Doctor brings a new, impossible, life-threatening experience!

In Serve You, meet a threat in reverse as time inside the TARDIS flows backwards! An ancient alien war for supremacy in the sky comes to near-future London! And the machinations of SERVEYOUinc revealed, when the Doctor hits them where it hurts – their wallets! Three companions, three times the danger, three times the excitement! Experience every twist and secret reveal in the thrilling second act of the eleventh Doctor’s first year in comics!

UK – Dead Ice Signing

lkh-deadiceLAURELL K. HAMILTON will be signing DEAD ICE at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 7th August from 5 – 7pm.

An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, novel

My name is Anita Blake and I have the highest kill count of any vampire executioner in the country. I’m a U.S. Marshal who can raise zombies with the best of them. But ever since master vampire Jean-Claude and I went public with our engagement, all I am to anyone and everyone is Jean-Claude’s fiancée.

It’s wreaking havoc with my reputation as a hard ass – to some extent. Luckily, in professional circles, I’m still the go-to expert for zombie issues. And right now, the FBI is having one hell of a zombie issue.

Someone is producing zombie porn. I’ve seen my share of freaky undead fetishes, so this shouldn’t bother me. But the women being victimised aren’t just mindless, rotting corpses. Their souls are trapped behind their eyes, signalling voodoo of the blackest kind.

It’s the sort of case that can leave a mark on a person. And my own soul may not survive unscathed . . .

Laurell K. Hamilton is the bestselling author of the acclaimed Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter novels. She lives near St Louis with her husband, her daughter, two dogs and an ever-fluctuating number of fish.

PLEASE NOTE: As a high turnout is expected to this event, there will be restrictions placed on the number of items signed.

Press Release:

Chad Coleman’s new graphic novel TREADWATER releases this week and Forbidden Planet NYC is proud to announce that the star of AMC’s The Walking Dead and and HBO’s The Wire will be here signing copies of the book from 10am-6pm on Saturday July 25th!!!

Chad-ColemanTreadwater is a new SF series published created by Morgan Rosenblum and published by Darkrose Studios. Here’s the skinny on it:

In the wake of a global economic meltdown, chaos erupts and the world’s safety is jeopardized by a new wave of crime and terror. A privately funded team of high tech special operatives is assembled, known as TREADWATER, the only force standing between hope and anarchy. As Germany forms it’s aggressive Stance behind a true military German patriot, General Kirklau, it becomes more than evident that the balance of global powers is all but obsolete. Governments and world-wide organizations have their hands tied as one wrong move by any of them could launch an all-out world war. Treadwater is the only organization taking a proactive stance to keep the world afloat, while others helplessly do just that – tread water.

While Chad is super duper awesome and will be sticking around for quite some time on Saturday to accommodate as many fans that come down to our gig, quantities of the book are limited and you’re encouraged to pre-order in advance. Pre-orders may be purchased in-store starting Monday the 20th; your receipt will be accompanied by a ticket to our event.

In the first issue of FOUR DOCTORS, a shocking past event brings three Doctors together to combat an unknown foe. The five-part Doctor Who event of 2015 begins here in a tale written by Doctor Who novelist Paul Cornell and illustrated by Neil Edwards that brings together the tenth Doctor and Gabby, the eleventh Doctor and Alice, and the twelfth Doctor and Clara!

In the first issue of Paul Cornell’s THIS DAMNED BAND, 1972: the world’s most famous rock band thought they were ‘worshipping Satan,’ only to find they were actually . . . worshipping Satan. Join Paul’s darkly hilarious adventure of black magic and classic rock!

Written by Grant Morrison, Frazer Irving’s ANNIHILATOR introduces up to washed-up Hollywood screenwriter Ray Spass. Caught in a downward spiral of broken relationships, wild parties and self-destruction, out of luck and out of chances, he’s one failed script away from fading into obscurity. Little does he know he’s about to write the story of his life. As his imagination runs rampant, Ray must join forces with his own fictional character Max Nomax on a reality-bending race to stop the entire universe from imploding – without blowing his own mind in the process.
