DAVE GIBBONS appears to sign THE SECRET SERVICE at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 22nd March from 3:00 – 4:00 pm!
Two masters of the form, Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, have come together to produce this remarkable new graphic novel from Millar and Hollywood director Matthew Vaughn, set in the aftermath of the 2011 riots that fractured London. The film based on the graphic novel, and directed by Vaughn, will be released in UK cinemas in March 2015.
Gary’s life is going nowhere. He lives in public housing with his mother and spends his nights carousing with his friends. But Gary’s Uncle Jack has taken a different path – one of glamour, danger and mystery. When Jack is called upon to get his nephew out of trouble one last time, their lives are going to intersect in a way neither of them could have foreseen. From the creative team of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and Matthew Vaughn (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; Snatch; Layer Cake; Stardust; Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class) comes this highly anticipated and superlative work.
Dave Gibbons is one of Britain’s finest comic artists, whose most famous work is the multi-award- winning Watchmen. Since then he has drawn series including Batman, Doctor Who, and Give Me Liberty, and has written Batman vs. Predator, Green Lantern, and World’s Finest, as well as his own graphic novel The Originals.
