Ian Edginton signing Brass Sun at Forbidden Planet

Brass Sun Hard Cover

 

Writer Ian Edginton will be signing copies of Brass Sun at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 4th December from 6 – 7.00pm. Unfortunately, artist Ian Culbard is unable to attend.

Described as “Exquisite” by major comics web site Comic Book Resources, Brass Sun, first published in 2000AD is a “a beautifully rendered and textured world that presents something unique and engaging.”

The Orrery is a fully functional, life-size clockwork solar system, a clutch of planets orbiting a vast Brass Sun via immense metal spars.

But the once-unified collection of worlds has regressed into eccentric fiefdoms, and ice is encroaching on the outer planets as the sun is dying. Wren and Eptimus must find the key to restart the sun, but first must escape the world known as The Keep…

Ian Edginton is best known for his steampunk/alternate history work, and is the co-xreator or Scarlet Traces, a sequel to H G Wells’ War of the Worlds published by Dark Horse, and is the writer on Hinterkind for DC Comics. He’s also written for 2000AD, produced the comic book version of the computer game Hellgate: London, and writes comics based on the worlds of WarHammer 40k.

Ian Culbard is a big fan of Arthur Conan Doyle and H P Lovecraft, and, in 2011, won the British Fantasy Award for his graphic novel adaptation of The Mountains of Madness. His latest Lovecraft adaptation, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, has just been published by SelfMadeHero and is another glorious work from this accomplished creator, who is also working on the BOOM! Studios series Wild’s End with Dan Abnett.
