Join an all-star Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks line-up at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore, launching Titan Comics’ Ian Livingstone’s Freeway Fighter: The Comic on Saturday 20th May 2017 from 1.00 – 2.00pm.

At the special signing will be Gamesmaster Ian Livingstone, artist Jim Burns, editor Jonathan Green, and creators Andi Ewington, Simon Coleby and Orlando Arocena, bringing us the first leg of a furious four part road trip.

The event will be marked with the release of a stunning special Forbidden Planet variant cover by top SF artist Jim Burns (above), but two other variants to look out for are the Diamond special, also by Jim Burns – and one for fans of the original, best-selling game – the “Fan Appreciation” Variant, which is simply, just great fun.

Celebrating 35 years in 2017, Fighting Fantasy brought together choice-driven storytelling with a dice-based role-playing system to create a world in which ‘YOU are the hero!’ The series sold over 18 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 languages.

In the new comics series, an unknown virus has wiped out over 85 per cent of the world’s human population. Former I-400 Driver Bella De La Rosa is one of the 15 per cent – living every day as if it were her last.

Now, 18 months after the collapse of civilisation, faced with a new world order where violence and chaos rule the Freeway. She must hone her racing skills and survive any way she can!

Stepping away from the usual mix of orcs and goblins, Freeway Fighter is a road trip like no other. Dare you take it? If yes, turn to paragraph 132!

At the signing you’ll have the chance to lay your hands on the Freeway Fighter #1, signed Forbidden Planet/Jetpack Jim Burns Variant, cover – pre-order it now
