Forbidden Planet - 40th Anniversary Souvenir Magazine
« on: 15 June, 2018, 09:59:57 am »
Launching at tomorrow's West End Live* is a special - free! - magazine celebrating Forbidden Planet's many, many signing events over the years.

Naturally, having had such a close relationship with Tharg since the very beginning, there's a few relevant 2000AD photos in there - including one from 1980, with Brian Bolland, Mick McMahon, John Wagner and Ron Smith in attendence!

Like I said... free! Available from this weekend.

*Available at FP stores across the country from late next week.

Thanks for the heads up - hope I get a chance to drop by!

No worries! I think it has a healthy print-run, so should be easy enough to pick up in the stores.

It only scratches the surface of the FP archive, mind. Over 2000 events - so 16 pages could never represent everything!

(I wish it did... I spent 12 months scanning in 12,000 documents relating to them all!)

Looks interesting, if anyone has a spare or could pick me up a copy, that would be great.
