Peter Milligan and Mike Carey sign at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 18th October 2012 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

John Constantine, chain-smoking occultist anti-hero, is back in Peter Milligan’s ‘Hellblazer – the Devil’s Trench Coat’. When Gemma Masters punishes her uncle by auctioning off his trench coat, she ignites an horrific chain of events. Bleeding apartment walls, unplanned visits to the middle of the Thames, a farting demon, a suspicious angel, a Hellish aquarium, and an old adversary all await Constantine as he races to track down his coat before it sends him to Hell again!

In the sixth volume of Mike Carey’s ‘Unwritten’, Tom Taylor goes to war against the cabal that has tormented, imprisoned and tried to destroy him. To have a hope of winning, Tom must use every weapon he can get hold of, but even storybook magic carries its own risks. Tom’s crusade plays out against the backdrop of the cabal’s sinister secret history and delves deep into the dark past of some of the series’ major players. When it’s all over, very little will remain ‘Unwritten’.

Chain-smoking occultist anti-hero John Constantine is back in this new volume! After getting dumped by his girlfriend, Constantine goes to extremes to get her back.
