‘68: RULE OF WAR #1 from Image Comics
Writer: Mark Kidwell • Artist: Jeff Zornow, Jay Fotos

In a doom-shadowed Cambodia infested with the living dead, CIA Special Agent Declan Rule and his canine companion Nero stalk a human monster, a neurosurgeon bent on carrying out grisly experiments that turn P.O.W.s into vicious instruments of war. In Vietnam, Private Kuen Yam and his ragtag band of survivors battle their way across a murderous no-man’s-land in a desperate search for a ticket to the skies. The war is over, but the battle for humanity’s survival has just begun. Courage will be tested, sanity will be pushed to the breaking point and the rules of war… will be broken.

UK – Genesis Signing

Genesis.jpg.size-230

Join Alison Sampson, Rob Ball, and Matt Taylor signing Forbidden Planet’s very own Variant Cover of Image Comics’ Genesis one-shot, all happening on Saturday 19th April from 1 – 2pm!

Offering an exclusive cover by Ian McQue, Genesis takes us on a trippy journey of creation and destruction as one man finds himself with the ability to manifest anything by thinking it-only to learn that with seemingly unlimited power comes unstoppable terror.

Alison Sampson is a London based architect and illustrator. She has been responsible for leading and contributing to a number of large and familiar, widely published and award-winning projects across the capital, working with the Richard Rogers Partnership, Will Alsop, Dr John Allen and John McAslan & Partners, amongst others. This is her debut full length comic, hopefully the first of many.

Robert Ball is a London based designer and illustrator who has worked for the likes of BBC, Sky, Sony, Wired Magazine, The National Gallery and the V&A. His debut comic Winter’s Knight: Day One won the 2013 Best British Comic award, the second part of which he really should be getting on with.

Matt Taylor is an illustrator and comic book artist who lives deep in the Sussex countryside. He spends his days channelling Americana, the great outdoors and 50s comic book art into illustrations for the likes of The New Yorker, Mondo, Burton Snowboards and many others. His first published comic work will be April’s Zero #7 and there is lots more to come…
