Freeway Fighter Roars Into Forbidden Planet
4 May 2017
Forbidden Planet and Titan Comics are delighted to announce that the creative team behind the highly-anticipated FREEWAY FIGHTER comic will be taking part in a mass signing at the Forbidden Planet Megastore on Saturday 20th May.
Written by Andi Ewington (Red Dog, Dark Souls II), with art by Simon Coleby (Royals, Judge Dredd), ably assisted by colourist Len O’Grady, and with letters by Jim Campbell, the four-part mini-series is based on the classic Fighting Fantasy gamebook of the same name by Ian Livingstone.
The FREEWAY FIGHTER comic introduces readers old and new to former racing car driver Bella De La Rosa as she fights to survive in a near-future America ravaged by a virus-induced apocalypse.
Available on the day will be two variant covers exclusive to Forbidden Planet; the fan-favourite adventure sheet variant, the other featuring the original cover art from the FREEWAY FIGHTER gamebook by SF art legend Jim Burns.
Ian Livingstone – who is one of the godfathers of the UK games industry, co-founder of Games Workshop, co-creator of the Fighting Fantasy series, and the man who brought Lara Croft to the world – will be attending the Forbidden Planet signing, along with writer Andi Ewington, artist Simon Coleby, variant cover artist Jim Burns, letterer Jim Campbell, and editor Jonathan Green (author of the award-winning history of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, YOU ARE THE HERO).
The Forbidden Planet signing of FREEWAY FIGHTER will also feature an exclusive opportunity purchase two limited edition Jim Burns Giclee prints, each one £29.99, 18" x 24", and signed by Jim Burns and Ian Livingstone. Make sure you're at the event, at our London Megastore on Saturday 20th May, as these are not available on the website!
