The Losers signing in London

The_Losers_GN.jpgAs the big screen release of The Losers draws ever closer, Titan Books and Forbidden Planet have announced creators Andy Diggle and Jock will be signing copies later this week at FP’s London store on Thursday 25th February.

The Losers centres on a former elite US Special Forces unit that served as the covert bloody hand of America – until they stumbled across a Central Intelligence Agency secret they couldn’t ignore. The CIA tried to kill them — but they’re about to learn that it takes more than one try to eliminate The Losers.

Praised as a terrific caper by Empire Magazine, with Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer and producer declaring he never missed an issue of the award-winning comic, The Losers is the work of British creative team Andy Diggle and Eisner Award-winning artist Jock (Green Arrow: Year One). The collection comprises the first two volumes (Ante Up and Double Down) – issues #1-12 of the slick, smart and stunning series.
