UK – Grandville Noel Signing

bt-fpukBryan Talbot signs GRANDVILLE NOEL at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 26th November from 6:00 – 7:00 pm!

NO BADGER DOES IT BETTER!

With his trusty adjunct, Detective Sergeant Ratzi, away for Christmas, there’s no holiday for Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard as he embarks on an investigation into the disappearance of his housekeeper’s niece, Bunty Spall. The trail leads to a growing religious cult, where a charismatic unicorn messiah and his con men cronies, already responsible for mass murder in the United States, are about to lead a crusade for the ethnic cleansing of the French Empire’s doughfaces – the derogatory nickname for humans used by the majority, animal-headed population. Teaming up with Chance Lucas, a gun-slinging operative of the Pinkerton Detective Agency, and reigniting his steamy love affair with the voluptuous Parisian badger prostitute Billie, LeBrock clashes with both cult fanatics and doughface terrorists, uncovering in the process a centuries-old religious conspiracy that threatens to plunge the world into bloody civil war.

With Paris in the grip of the mysterious crime lord, Tiberius Koenig, and an increasingly violent backlash by human extremists, can LeBrock stop the seemingly inevitable slide into fascism? What is the secret of the legendary True Gospels? Can he rescue Bunty Spall from the clutches of the strangely hypnotic unicorn named Apollo? But does Bunty want to be saved? And will LeBrock be back in time for Christmas dinner?

Bryan Talbot has worked on such underground comics, science fiction and superhero stories as Judge Dredd and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Vertigo titles including Sandman, Hellblazer, and Fables and has written and drawn several Eisner Award-winning graphic novels.

UK – Ordinary Launch Party

ordinary.jpg.size-230Rob Williams and D’Israeli will be launching their new comic ‘Ordinary’ at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore at 5:00 pm on Wednesday 28th May.

What if everyone woke up with superpowers – and it was the worst thing in the world?

When a strange plague gives every human being on the planet special powers, it’s seen as the next step in human evolution. But hope quickly turns to terror, as every war, terrorist attack, every crime, every simple street argument escalates to a truly horrific point.

The plague must be cured if humankind is to survive. The key lies in the blood of the only human being who didn’t get powers when the plague hit: A downtrodden, recently divorced New York plumber named Michael Fisher. The most ordinary man alive has suddenly become the most extraordinary person on Planet Earth. Giant baseball players, grannies ageing in reverse, a talking Grizzly bear. That’s nothing out of the Ordinary!

Rob Williams is a British comic book writer. Among a huge list of credits, he is a regular writer of JUDGE DREDD for 2000AD, including the hit series’ ‘Titan’ and ‘Trifecta’, he writes THE ROYALS for Vertigo, 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.

D’Israeli – aka artist Matt Brooker – has created Future Shocks for 2000 AD, and Consequences, a one-off sequel to Timulo. He has drawn Judge Dredd, worked as a colourist on Miracleman and 2000 AD, and as an inker on Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Grant Morrison’s Kill Your Boyfriend.
