Vertigo Graphic Connection

By DCE Editorial Friday, February 26th, 2010
Good morning Graphic Content readers! Today is very snowy in the big apple—the perfect day to stay in your pjs and read a good comic book or graphic novel or some of the great reviews and features they’re receiving. So, if you’re catching up on the week today here some things you should know: WIRED/Underwire interviewed Jamie Delano about the HELLBLAZER PANDEMONIUM original graphic novel set in the Middle East. “Brian Wood month” continues. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY/Shelf Life reviews DMZ #50 calling it “an extremely clever comic book series that regularly transcends mere cleverness.” It was also reviewed by TIME/Techland, CBR and NEWSARAMA. UGO ran a preview of NORTHLANDERS #25, while IGN reviewed and COMICS ALLIANCE, CBR and NEWSARAMA ran features. OTHER LIVES the new original graphic novel written and illustrated by Peter Bagge, due to arrive in stores this April, has received early praise from a couple of book trade publications. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY says “this is prime Bagge that will surprise readers with its artistic maturity and a plot that is in no way predictable,” and BOOKLIST says “Best known for chronicling 1990s Seattle slackers in the comic book Hate, Bagge now gives us a quartet of neurotic misfits. . . . [his] loopy visual idiom effectively reinforces the characters’ pathetic-but-humorous, self-delusional nature.” Have a great weekend!
