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…
