  • UK – Brass Sun Signing

    brass_sunIan Edginton and I N J Culbard appear at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore to sign Brass Sun on Thursday 4th December from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.

    Press Release:

    The Orrery is a fully functional, life-size clockwork solar system, a clutch of planets orbiting a vast Brass Sun via immense metal spars.

    But the once-unified collection of worlds has regressed into eccentric fiefdoms, and ice is encroaching on the outer planets as the sun is dying. Wren and Eptimus must find the key to restart the sun, but first must escape the world known as The Keep…This is a wholly original new SF-clockpunk series from the bestselling artist of New Deadwardians and The Mountains of Madness, and the writer of Scarlet Traces and Stickleback.

    Ian Edginton is best known for his steampunk/alternate history work, and is the co-xreator or Scarlet Traces,a sequel to H G Weels’ War of the Worlds. He’s also written for 2000AD, produced the comic book version of the computer game Hellgate: London, and writes comics based on the worlds of WarHammer 40k.

    Ian Culbard is a big fan of Arthur Conan Doyle and H P Lovecraft, and, in 2011, won the British Fantasy Award for his graphic novel adaptation of The Mountains of Madness. He studied at art school and has worked on many titles including The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet, A Princess of Mars and The Shadow Out of Time.

    Forbidden Planet stores in London, Bristol, and Birmingham, along with Travelling Man stores in Leeds and Manchester, and the Forbidden Planet store in Edinburgh will be stuffed with artists and writers who have made 2000 AD what it is today.

    Legendary writer, and Dredd and Strontium Dog co-creator, John Wagner will be headlining the day with a visit to Manchester and other big names now confirmed include Dave Gibbons (Rogue Trooper, Watchmen), Simon Bisley (Sláine: The Horned God, Lobo), Steve Yeowell (Zenith), Clint Langley (Sláine, ABC Warriors) Dan Abnett (Sinister Dexter, Kingdom), John Higgins (Judge Dredd), D’Israeli (Leviathan), Ian Edginton (Leviathan, Red Seas), and Mark Buckingham (Fables).

    A terrorist doesn’t let strangers into her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place. The terrorist doesn’t know that one of these kids has bugged every room in her house, made copies of all her computer files and stolen her address book. The kid works for CHERUB. .James is a 12-year-old boy from the wrong side of the tracks, sent to a children’s home when his mother dies and his stepfather disowns him. But CHERUB is recruiting, and James is pinpointed as having potential. Taken under cover of darkness, he finds himself in a secret location – at the training centre for all CHERUB agents. He faces extreme hardship while preparing for his first mission – to foil a suspected anthrax attack …
