“Gene the Hackman, top dog, him done the great Walk Around. Not for him the darkness, nor for him the Time of Ice that we know today.”

Evelyn War is a Believer. She knows that in the Old Time, long before the Time of Ice that Masters Fought a war with Them, great chitinous beasts that stalked the world and rended and killed. She knows the Masters set fierce, doglike Aux like her to watch over their sleep and keep Them off their Lawn. She knows that the stories are not just lessons in the ways of the war. Them were real.

But in the frozen ruins of Berlin, Them have not been seen for many years. Now the Aux fight among themselves and say all that was just stories. They scorn Evelyn and mock her warnings.

But as the ice is melting, and the whistling calls of Them can be heard in the tunnels of the U-Bahn once more. Abnett co-created Kingdom with artist Richard Elson and the comics have been collected into two graphic novel collections, Kingdom: The Promised Land and Kingdom: Call of the Wild. FIEFDOM is the first release into the brand new fiction series on Abaddon Books.

UK – Disenchanted Signing

fpukSimon Spurrier signs Disenchanted Vol. 1 and other titles, at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 25th July from 6:00 – 7:00 pm!

SIMON SPURRIER welcomes you to Vermintown! The smash-hit webcomic is collected for the first time!

Nobody gives a crap about the little people any more. Once they were the mainstay of folklore: goblins, leprechauns, pixies, and fey. But now? Dispossessed, forgotten, doubting even their own traditions, they’ve trickled into Vermintown: a vast and vile city of a million inch-tall malcontents. Sprawling through an abandoned subway station deep beneath London, here myth has given way to sleaze, drugs, gangland violence and interracial hatred. Vermintown is where magic went to die. What ever happened to magic?

Simon Spurrier was physically born in the 80’s but profiles an existential/curmudgeonly age of 103.

Working as an Art Director for the BBC in the armpit of the millennium, he took an unscripted tangent into the murky depths of Making Stuff Up On Paper and has since become an award winning author and graphic novelist. His latest crime novel, A Serpent Uncoiled, was released to great critical acclaim in 2011, while his comics works includes Judge Dredd, Crossed, Gutsville, Six-Gun Gorilla and the all-new, all-weird X-Men Legacy – part of the “Marvel Now” initiative.
