Forbidden Planet has just announced a signing by Pat Mills and artist Clint Langley to mark the publication of ABC Warriors: The Volgan War Volume 2 at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 27th February 1 – 2pm.
The Meknificent Seven are ever-closer to retrieving their comrade Zippo from Marineris, ‘the ugliest city in the galaxy’; Deadlock and Blackblood recount dark tales from their involvement in the Volgan War. And, whilst past secrets create new hostilities within the team, an ex-ABC Warrior nursing a big grudge commits the ultimate act of betrayal!
Pat Mills remains best known, for many British comics fans, as the creator and first editor of 2000AD. He developed Judge Dredd and is the writer-creator of many of its most popular stories such as Nemesis the Warlock, Sláine and ABC Warriors. He created – with John Wagner – Battle Weekly, birthplace of Charley’s War, and Marshal Law with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen artist Kevin O’Neill. He’s also written Doctor Who audio plays for Big Finish and continues working on his best-selling French graphic novel series Requiem, Vampire Knight.
Clint Langley started his career in the 1990’s. His images can be seen worldwide in comics, on novel covers and in the conceptual design for advertising and films. His first comic strip work was Dynosty, which appeared in 2000AD. He’s since worked on various comic strips such as Slaine, Judge Dredd and Warhammer.
