UK – Disenchanted Signing

fpukSimon Spurrier signs Disenchanted Vol. 1 and other titles, at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 25th July from 6:00 – 7:00 pm!

SIMON SPURRIER welcomes you to Vermintown! The smash-hit webcomic is collected for the first time!

Nobody gives a crap about the little people any more. Once they were the mainstay of folklore: goblins, leprechauns, pixies, and fey. But now? Dispossessed, forgotten, doubting even their own traditions, they’ve trickled into Vermintown: a vast and vile city of a million inch-tall malcontents. Sprawling through an abandoned subway station deep beneath London, here myth has given way to sleaze, drugs, gangland violence and interracial hatred. Vermintown is where magic went to die. What ever happened to magic?

Simon Spurrier was physically born in the 80’s but profiles an existential/curmudgeonly age of 103.

Working as an Art Director for the BBC in the armpit of the millennium, he took an unscripted tangent into the murky depths of Making Stuff Up On Paper and has since become an award winning author and graphic novelist. His latest crime novel, A Serpent Uncoiled, was released to great critical acclaim in 2011, while his comics works includes Judge Dredd, Crossed, Gutsville, Six-Gun Gorilla and the all-new, all-weird X-Men Legacy – part of the “Marvel Now” initiative.

SIMON SPURRIER signs his new graphic novel NUMBERCRUNCHER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 15th January at 6:00pm.

A time-twisting romantic thriller-noir metaphysical black comedy from the smash-hit writer of X-Men Legacy and Crossed: Wish You Were Here!

Numbercruncher is the story of a lovesick, dying Mathematician who cheats the rules of the Afterlife to be reincarnated within his lover’s lifetime… and faces the full force of Karmic Accountancy as a result. One Karmic agent – the surly Bastard Zane – must stop the time-twisting romance before the Mathematician can escape Existential Justice!

UK – Judge Dredd: Trifecta Signing

jd3Join Al Ewing, Simon Spurrier, and Rob Williams as they sign JUDGE DREDD TRIFECTA at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, Shaftesbury Avenue London on Thursday 22nd August from 6 – 7pm!

Mega-City One, 2134 AD. Fresh from the devastating events caused by the Chaos virus, Dredd becomes aware of a potential power grab from within the Justice Department. Wally Squad gumshoe Jack Point is given a mysterious doll to safeguard. Dirty Frank wakes up on Luna-1 as a board member of Overdrive, Inc. All three Judges soon find themselves embroiled in the same case in which allegiances and grudges form in equal measure!

Originally published in 2000AD in 2012, Trifecta was hailed as the best comic event of the year. It was an epic crossover between three previous stories – Al Ewing’s ‘The Cold Deck’, picking up the pieces from the previous ‘Day of Chaos’ strip, Simon Spurrier’s ‘The Simping Detective’ and Rob Williams’s ‘Low Life: Saudade’.

Come and join the three writers who made this happen, and celebrate Trifecta in graphic novel form!

UK – A Serpent Uncoiled Signing

 

Simon Spurrier signs at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Wednesday 3rd August 6 –7pm.

Dan Sharper’s sins are a sickness. Sharper is a former underworld enforcer who now scrapes a living as a private detective, So far, so conventional. He needs to straighten up and rebuild his life, however an emotional breakdown has left him with a tenuous grip on reality and his life is about to get a whole lot stranger…

He’s tasked to prevent the murder of George Glass, an eccentric old man who knows he’s going to be killed but can’t remember why. Normally Sharper would recoil from Glass’s senile brand of New Age salvation, but the case is as tantalizing as it is lucrative. Adrift amidst liars and thugs, Sharper must push his capsizing mind beyond its limits: stalked not only by a unique and terrifying murderer, but by the ghosts of his own brutal past.

Simon Spurrer is a graduate from S.I.A.D’s Film and Television degree course; he’s received screenwriting bursaries at both the National Academy of Writing and the Met Film School, and has worked for the BBC as an art director. He’s since become an award-winning novelist – writing for Marvel, DC and 2000AD.
