UK – Miracleman/The Discipline Signing

000000-MiraclemanMark Buckingham and Peter Milligan at Forbidden Planet on Wednesday, 2nd March, 2016 at 6:00 PM!

Press Release:  

Join MARK BUCKINGHAM signing MIRACLEMAN VOL. 1 THE GOLDEN AGE and PETER MILLIGAN signing SOONER OR LATER and THE DISCIPLINE #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 2nd March from from 6 – 7pm!

Atop Olympus, Mark Buckingham’s MIRACLEMAN presides over a brave new world forged from London’s destruction. It is a world free of war, of famine, of poverty. A world of countless wonders. A world where pilgrims scale Olympus’s peak to petition their living god while, miles below, the dead return in fantastic android bodies. It is an Age of Miracles — but is humankind ready for it? Do we even want it? Is there a place for humanity in a world of gods? Gaiman and Buckingham delve into the lives of lonely idealists, rebellious schoolchildren and fracturing families, exploring the human constant in a changing world of gods and miracles.

000000-DisciplineIn Peter Milligan’s SOONER OR LATER, we find ourselves in Thatcher’s Britain – and Micky Swift is still on the dole. Disillusioned with his dour existence in dreary Camden, Micky’s life is suddenly turned inside out when he is plucked dragged into the 30th century as the property of one Mr & Mrs Katsbreath – a case of mistaken identity. Unwanted, trapped in the future and still unemployable, if Micky wants to return home (time travel isn’t cheap you know!), he will need to find a job!

And in DISCIPLINE #1, Melissa fall in lust with a stranger who’s an awful lot more than he seems. What appears to be a simple seduction is revealed as something much darker and more dangerous. This controversial and erotically-charged tale of sex, death, and metamorphosis begins with an explosion of carnality and weirdness.

UK – Lady Mechanika Signing

Lady Mechanika 0

JOE BENITEZ will be signing LADY MECHANIKA comics at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday November 6th from 6 – 7pm.

The tabloids dubbed her “Lady Mechanika“, the sole survivor of a mad scientist’s horrific experiments that left her with mechanical limbs. Having no memory of her captivity or her former life, Mechanika eventually built a new life for herself as a private detective, using her unique abilities to solve cases the police couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. But she never stopped searching for the answers to her own past.

Set in turn of the century England, a time when magic and superstition clashed with new scientific discoveries and inventions, Lady Mechanika is about a young woman’s search for her own identity as she solves other mysteries involving science and the supernatural.

Joe Benitez is an American comic book artist who has worked on such titles as Titans (DC Comics), Magdalena (Image Comics), and Soulfire (Aspen Comics). He is also the creator of the modern fantasy Wraithborn and the steampunk series Lady Mechanika.
