UK – Judge Dredd: Titan Signing

00000000000-dredd-ukROB WILLIAMS will be signing JUDGE DREDD: TITAN at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Saturday 18th June from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

Now the Justice Department of Mega-City One has lost contact with the Titan penal colony – a big problem considering that it houses over one thousand law-breaking ex-judges, many of which have a grudge with their old colleagues.

Dredd must team up with SJS Judge Gerhart – a man who holds him responsible for ‘Chaos Day’, and battle a formidable army led by one of the most dangerous ex-undercover Judge’s ever…

Rob Williams has a host of comics titles to his name, including titles for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Dynamite, IDW and Com.X. He is also the writer of The Royals, Master of War for Vertigo, Judge Dredd for 2000AD, and recently was one of the writers on the ‘Into The Light’ official tie-in comic for Namco Bandai’s DARK SOULS II computer game.

drwho-day

Nick Abadzis, Al Ewing, and Rob Williams appear for Titan Comics’ Doctor Who Day at the Forbidden Planet Megastore on Saturday 15th August 1 -2pm!

Signing Doctor Who 10th Vol. 1 Revolutions of terror, Doctor Who 11th Vol. 1 After Life and Doctor Who 11th Vol. 2 Serve You

In Revolutions of Terror, the Doctor thought he was done with new companions after Donna’s tragic exit – but that was before he met Gabriella “Gabby” Gonzalez during an incursion of psychic parasites in Brooklyn, New York! Now she’s traveling the cosmos as the Doctor’s latest companion – and life couldn’t be more exciting! Battling invisible creatures on the Day of the Dead, uncovering a galactic conspiracy in the universe’s most famous art gallery – the only downside is the constant threat of death!

In After Life, Alice Obiefune was at her lowest ebb when the Doctor burst into her life; she’d lost her mother, her job, and her apartment. But it didn’t take much of the Doctor’s compassion to get her on board the TARDIS, rediscovering the beauty in life, one time-lost adventure at a time! From tackling an alien pet in the streets of London, to exposing a devilish mystery in the 1930s Bayou; from discovering the truth behind an austerity-hit pleasure planet to facing a shapeshifting horror in a scientific research station – every day with the Doctor brings a new, impossible, life-threatening experience!

In Serve You, meet a threat in reverse as time inside the TARDIS flows backwards! An ancient alien war for supremacy in the sky comes to near-future London! And the machinations of SERVEYOUinc revealed, when the Doctor hits them where it hurts – their wallets! Three companions, three times the danger, three times the excitement! Experience every twist and secret reveal in the thrilling second act of the eleventh Doctor’s first year in comics!

Comments Off on UK – Ordinary Signing

OrdinaryRob Williams, Ben Oliver, and Simon Gurr appears for a signing of ORDINARY, the graphic novel, and AUTHORITY, HUMAN ON THE INSIDE at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Saturday 1st November from 1 – 2pm.

For ORDINARY, Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser, you’ve always been. What’s needed is a return to normality, to devolve back from Superhuman to just human – and there’s only one man for the job: down-at-heel, divorced New York plumber, Michael Fisher.

The AUTHORITY, Earth’s last of defence, have performed God-like acts in their defence of the planet, whether defeating ancient gods or fending off inter-dimensional invasion forces. But these brave acts haven’t always endeared them to many in power, particularly in the United States. The President, tired of being embarrassed by what he views as a bunch of costumed freaks, sets a plan in motion that could very well destroy the Authority from the inside — a plan so cunning and unexpected, it’ll shake the Authority to their very core.
