Captain Britain and Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell will be signing copies of the Captain Britain and MI13 – Secret Invasion graphic novel, the first collection of the Marvel Comics series, at Forbidden Planet later this week (Thursday 15th January).
Join Paul at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 15th January from 6 – 7.00pm.
In this collection, the Skrull Invasion of Secret Invasion isn’t restricted to the US – when the Skrulls hit Blighty, only Captain Britain and MI:13 stand in their way!
With the fate of Britain hanging in the balance, can the heroes find out what the Skrulls are after before it’s too late? Featuring Prime Minister Gordon Brown in action!

If you’ve been holding out from being part of this social communication revolution, what better reason to leap aboard? (Hmm, nope, still not convinced…)
