Items 81 & 82: two appearances in Al Ewing “Pax Britannia” novel, PAX OMEGA

The two highest bidders will each see themselves appear in the next “Pax Britannia” novel by Al Ewing, PAX OMEGA.

Minimum Bid: £10.00

Al says:

On the block, taking my cue from Jon Green, I’m getting competitive by offering not one but TWO chances to appear in my next Pax Britannia novel, Pax Omega. Snapping one of these up will guarantee a speaking part – you could be fighting alongside El Sombra or Doc Thunder, or against them, or something even more outlandish, but whatever you end
up doing you’re guaranteed at least one line.

Ewing’s work appeared in the 2000AD Winter Special 2005, a compendium of up and coming British comics creators. Recent work includes the 3-part Go-Machine serial, Tempest, his first series for the Judge Dredd Megazine, and Dead Signal, illustrated by P. J. Holden, which recently ran in 2000AD.

Al’s debut novel was published in 2007 by Abaddon Books. Pax Britannia: El Sombra features a mysterious Mexican hero fighting back against the menace of steam-powered Nazis. It is set in the same Steampunk alternate history as the other novels from the Pax Britannia series. A second, unrelated, novel for Abaddon was recently published with the title I, Zombie.

    £160! And I should clarify the Nazi request, I am Jewish. Don’t thin my Gran would be that impressed. She of course follows all Al’s work, but finds it a bit tame.
