SIMON ROY will be signing HABITAT at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 3rd November from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.
A new barbarian sci-fi adventure!
All his life, Hank Cho wanted to join the ranks of the Habsec – the rulers of the orbital habitat his people call home. But when he finds a powerful, forbidden weapon from the deep past, a single moment of violence sets his life – and the brutal society of the habitat – into upheaval. Hunted by the cannibalistic Habsec and sheltered by former enemies, Cho finds himself caught within a civil war that threatens to destroy his world.
Simon Roy is the Wayward son of the Canadian Far West. He cut his comics teeth in 2009 with JAN’S ATOMIC HEART, and has been vigorously gnawing ever since. His comics include TIGER LUNG, PROPHET, and THE FIELD.

Simon Roy appears at Floating World Comics for a signing on Wednesday, December 17th from 5:00 – 7:00 PM!
Thirty-five thousand years ago, the world was ruled by strange beasts and ancient gods! For some Paleolithic tribes, hope lay in the shaman warriors who stood between them and the unknown. Tiger Lung follows the struggle of one of these shamans to keep his people alive in a vast, hostile universe! This gorgeous hardcover edition collects the Tiger Lung adventure from Dark Horse Presents #21–#23, along with two bonus stories.

Comments Off on SF – Inkstuds Tour
Mission: Comics welcomes artists Brandon Graham and Simon Roy, partners in the relaunch of PROPHET on Saturday, April 19th at 7:00 pm! All part of the Inkstuds 500 Tour with Robin McConnell.
Brandon Graham well known for his puny books, KING CITY, MULTIPLE WARHEADS, and PROPHET will be on hand signing books and offering up his opinion on all things comic book.
“MULTIPLE WARHEADS features ghosts, magic, and monsters, which doesn’t make it sound much like slice-of-life comics. But the twist is that while Graham enjoys exploring the supernatural and sci-fi elements of the world, the focus is squarely on the characters and their relationships with each other. Wild things do happen, and absurd characters do appear, but if you’re reading MULTIPLE WARHEADS, you’re reading it to see what happens to the cast, in addition to exploring their vibrant world.”
Simon Roy is hot off the release of JAN’S ATOMIC HEART AND OTHER STORIES, a collection of previously hard to track down mini-comics focused on sci-fi and fantasy stories.
