Alan Hebden signing ‘Clash of the Guards’ – 15 July

28th June 2023

Writer Alan Hebden will be signing copies of the new collection of Clash of the Guards, his World War 2 series from the pages of Battle Picture Weekly!

Alan will be at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London on 15 July from 2-3pm.

Alan is one of British comics’ most legendary writers. One of the key creators behind the legendary Battle Picture Weekly, the title that changed comics in the mid-1970s, Hebden co-created “Major Eazy" and "El Mestizo" with Carlos Ezquerra, "Fighting Mann" with Cam Kennedy, and "The General Dies at Dawn" with John Cooper. He went on to work extensively for 2000 AD, including "Meltdown Man" with Massimo Belardinelli, and continues to work for Commando.

Clash of the Guards is one of his key stories for Battle, set in Italy during the darkest days of World War Two.

The United States Army have sent Captain Brad Clash to join a British platoon in order to learn from their experiences of fighting in WWII. A former Hollywood stuntman and speedway driver, Clash is a man of action who likes to tackle the enemy head on. All guts and glory, he uses his superior driving skills and American-made weapons, like the Winchester trench Gun, to keep the German Army at bay.

Out on 19 July, this gorgeous collection features the art of the legendary Boba Fett and Judge Dredd artist Cam Kennedy.
