A Look Back at 2019

16 December 2019

We've had an amazing 2019 at Forbidden Planet.

It's been a bumper year for signings and in-store events, and we've had some fantastic celebrity guests. We’ve had a Doctor in the house, a Gelfling in the window, and a demon in the London Megastore - plus we’ve hosted some fantastic parties!

The year kicked off in style, as we welcomed Samuel L. Jackson and M. Night Shyamalan into the store…

We’ve had a visit from Tom Baker, signing his Doctor Who novel Scratchman…

 

And from another Doctor (and Baker), who brought some of friends - Joy Wilkinson, Vinay Patel and Bev Sanford...

 

We've said hello to David Harbour, promoting Hellboy...

 

And to Zachary Levi, Mark Strong and David F. Sandberg, promoting Shazam!...

 

We've had several huge events with DanNerdCubed and Mr. Rebecca, pictured here with special guest star Ashens...

 

We've drawn butterflies with Emma Vieceli and Claudia Leonardi, signing Life is Strange…

 

To Reece Shearsmith, sharing his love of ghosts…

 

To Kevin Smith, promoting the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot…

 

And to James Murray, who took us to The Brink!

 

We've also welcomed some fantastic creative and artistic talent, including David Koepp, Akira Himekawa, Chris Riddell, Frank Cho, Dan Slott, Kit Buss, Patrick Rothfuss, Joe Abercrombie, Tasmyn Muir, Ben Aaronovitch, Graham Humphries and Erin Morgenstern (below)…

 

Not forgetting the Warlocks themselves, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone…

 

And there's been more going on than just signings! Thanks to Netflix UK, we've had the original puppets from Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance in three of our stores...

We've rolled dice with world-class Dungeon Master Ruty Rutenberg…

 

Played Blockbuster with Big Potato Games...

 

And celebrated Valentine’s Day with our very own Pusheen Party!

It's been a fantastic year for us - we've had so much going on. And we look forward to more new events... next year!
