Forbidden Planet are delighted to bring you a signing for the brand new hardcovers of UBER and THREE, both from writer Kieron Gillen! Join Kieron at the London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR, on Friday 11th April from 6 – 7pm!
In UBER, it’s April 24, 1945. The world holds its collective breath as the war is only days away from ending. Russian troops move through Germany to the final objective… Hitler himself. As those around the mad dictator crumble, the much ridiculed threats of the “Wunderwafen” materialise. A new weapon is delivered, one with unstoppable power – a weapon like no other, and with a madman pulling the trigger. The Ubers change the direction of World War II, providing a dark and uncompromising alternative history in a way that you’ve never seen.
In THREE, we return to the world of Ancient Sparta, where three Helot slaves are running for their lives – and pursuing them are three hundred of their Spartan masters. Includes cover gallery, making of material, and annotations. This story takes place during the events of 300.

Chris Claremont writes both comics and prose. His initial unbroken 17-year run on Marvel Comics’ Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. The story arc “Dark Phoenix,” with its radical treatment of the story’s central character, paved the way for the reinterpretation of superhero mythos throughout the comics industry. His work is lauded for its anti-prejudice themes, and groundbreaking inclusion of minorities as heroes. With artist Frank Miller he created the Wolverine graphic novel that serves as the foundation for the forthcoming movie “The Wolverine” starring Hugh Jackman. His X-Men story arc “Days of Future Past” is the source material for the X-Men movie of the same title coming July 2014. Although best known for his work on Marvel Comic’s X-Men series, more on the way.

Forbidden Planet are delighted to bring you a signing for our LIMITED EDITION VARIANTS OF UBER #0 and UBER #1 by writer Kieron Gillen! Join Kieron at the London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 11th May 1 – 2pm!
Uber #0. 1945. Germany is in ruins. The war in the west can only be days away from ending. Threats of “wunderwaffen” to be unleashed by the dying Reich have become laughable. There are no miracle weapons here. It’s over. It has to be over. It’s not. There’s been stories which have mixed enhanced humans and World War 2 before. There’s never been one like this. See super beings in a whole new light as Gillen presents an epic new series that not only rewrites history, it redefines the genre. From the jaws of defeat, the Nazi war machine is resurrected by walking battleship superhuman soldiers who turn the tide of World War II.
In Uber #1, Super soldiers now turn the machinations of the Twentieth Century’s greatest madman into reality. The Ubers are here and the world will tremble at their feet. But a deeply entrenched spy could be the difference in seeing the world remade in the Nazi vision and the Allies finding a way to stem the tide. In this new, ongoing comics series, Superstar writer Kieron Gillen (Invincible Iron Man, Uncanny X-Men) delivers a brutal alternate timeline tale of super humans first appearing during WW2.
