Torchwood: Rift War Signing at Forbidden Planet London

A mere two months late I bring you photos of the Torchwood: Rift War signing at Forbidden Planet on April 25th. This was a big deal for me in two ways; first, it was my first signing at the London FP, a store I remember from its first incarnation on Denmark Street in the early 80's. Second, it was wonderful to be signing alongside such luminaries as Simon Furman and Paul Grist.

And then there was Bruce. Bruce has to be mentioned. There's a fine line between bravery and foolhardiness, and that's where Bruce lives, right out on the edge. Yes, Bruce got me to sketch in the flyleaf of his copy of Absolute Sandman - in ink.
