On Saturday 20th May 2017, fans of comics and gamebooks united to gather at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London for the signing of the very first Fighting Fantasy comic, Ian Livingstone's Freeway Fighter, published by Titan Comics.

In attendance were writer Andi Ewington, artist Simon Coleby, letterer Jim Campbell, editor Jonathan Green, variant cover artist Jim Burns, and the creator of the original Freeway Fighter gamebook, Ian Livingstone.
