Simon Bisley and Glenn Fabry sign at Gosh! Comics on Saturday November 24, 2012 from 2:00 – 4:00pm!
1 Berwick Street, SoHo, London W1F0DR
It’s been the cutting edge powerhouse of British comics since 1977 – and now 2000 AD is celebrating 35 years of Thrill-power with its first ever National Signing Event!
Just days before DREDD 3D hits movie screens, on Saturday 1st September five comic book stores in five cities from north to south will play host to a band, nay, a legion of top British comic book talent from the past three and a half decades. From old hands such as Dave Gibbons and Simon Bisley to the newest finds such as Al Ewing and Alec Worley, we’ll be celebrating Britain’s greatest export across the nation!
Forbidden Planet stores in London, Bristol, and Birmingham, along with Travelling Man stores in Leeds and Manchester, and the Forbidden Planet store in Edinburgh will be stuffed with artists and writers who have made 2000 AD what it is today.
Legendary writer, and Dredd and Strontium Dog co-creator, John Wagner will be headlining the day with a visit to Manchester and other big names now confirmed include Dave Gibbons (Rogue Trooper, Watchmen), Simon Bisley (Sláine: The Horned God, Lobo), Steve Yeowell (Zenith), Clint Langley (Sláine, ABC Warriors) Dan Abnett (Sinister Dexter, Kingdom), John Higgins (Judge Dredd), D’Israeli (Leviathan), Ian Edginton (Leviathan, Red Seas), and Mark Buckingham (Fables).
More big British names will be announced in the coming weeks – keep an eye on 2000adonline.com for all the latest updates!
Pat Mills & Simon Bisley sign the new hardcover of the classic SLAINE THE HORNED GOD (2000AD) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 23rd June 1 – 2pm.
The warrior barbarian Slaine, master of the warp spasm, wielder of the mighty axe Brainbiter, Celtic warrior king – faces his greatest challenge: the existence of his world is at stake as he prepares to follow the ways of the Horned God. It is a path that can give him control over nature itself or unleash a new age of witchcraft and dark forces.
Pat Mills is one of the founding fathers of 2000AD and one of the most respected comic book writers around. He’s created some of the longest-running characters for the title such as Slaine, ABC Warriors, and Nemesis The Warlock. His other work includes writing and developing Judge Dredd and Charley’s War.
Simon Bisley is best known for his work on ABC Warriors, Lobo, Slaine, and for his current work on Hellblazer. He was also the inpsiration for Simon Pegg’s character graphic artist Tim Bisley in the sitcom Spaced.

ADDITIONAL SHOW HIGHLIGHTS/EVENTS
RE-CREATING KEVIN EASTMAN’S STUDIO AND SELLING IT!
Inside the Galley space is a 15 x 15 foot square room, with a wall sized glass window looking into IT–where Kevin Eastman will move into and recreate his entire ART STUDIO and SELL IT TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER!
All items in the exhibit space will be taken directly from HIS Los Angeles based Art Studio—and set up as a working exhibit! Everything including desk, chairs, tables, original artwork, books, files, projects, comics, DVD’s, CD’s, things you (and even he) can’t even imaging.

Comments Off on UK – Hellblazer Signing
Simon Bisley and Peter Milligan sign Hellblazer: Hooked (Titan Edition) at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 7th August from 1 – 2pm.
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. But will he sink to a new low by using a love potion? Constantine’s enemy, the Babylonian shape-shifting demon Julian, and the hot young alchemist-gangster’s daughter Epiphany will certainly have something to say about this turn of events.
Peter Milligan is an acclaimed British comics writer and alumnus of 2000AD. Milligan was one of the founding writers of DC’s cutting edge Vertigo imprint, and has written a huge array of titles, including Animal Man, Tank Girl, Shade: The Changing Man, and X-Force. In addition to being the series writer on Hellblazer, he is currently working with Davide Gianfelice on the series Greek Street.
