Simon Spurrier signing Disenchanted and Six-Gun Gorilla
Simon Spurrier will be signing Disenchanted Vol. 1 and Six-Gun Gorilla at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 25th July from 6 – 7pm!
SIMON SPURRIER welcomes you to Vermintown! The smash-hit webcomic is collected for the first time!
Nobody gives a crap about the little people any more. Once they were the mainstay of folklore: goblins, leprechauns, pixies, and fey. But now? Dispossessed, forgotten, doubting even their own traditions, they've trickled into Vermintown: a vast and vile city of a million inch-tall malcontents. Sprawling through an abandoned subway station deep beneath London, here myth has given way to sleaze, drugs, gangland violence and interracial hatred. Vermintown is where magic went to die. What ever happened to magic?
In Six-Gun Gorilla, we welcome you to 'the Blister,' a bizarre other-world colonized by humans sometime in the 22nd century, and which quickly became a hotly contested source of fertile land and natural resources long ago exhausted on Earth.
In this new frontier, a rogue gunslinger and his companion wander across a wilderness in the grips of a civil war, encountering lawlessness, natives, and perversions of civilization in a world at the crossroads between the past and the future. The fact that said gunslinger is a bio-surgically modified silverback gorilla toting a pair of enormous revolvers is neither here nor there.
Simon Spurrier was physically born in the 80’s but profiles an existential/curmudgeonly age of 103.
Working as an Art Director for the BBC in the armpit of the millennium, he took an unscripted tangent into the murky depths of Making Stuff Up On Paper and has since become an award winning author and graphic novelist. His latest crime novel, A Serpent Uncoiled, was released to great critical acclaim in 2011, while his comics works includes Judge Dredd, Crossed, Gutsville, Six-Gun Gorilla and the all-new, all-weird X-Men Legacy – part of the “Marvel Now” initiative.
