Karen Berger and MYSTERY IN SPACE

By Pamela Mullin Horvath Friday, May 11th, 2012

It's tough to follow up that big bunny from yesterday, but I think this steam-punk angel devising the map of the world will most definitely give you some food for thought.

If you haven't already you must check out the goods behind this beautiful and elegantly drawn cover of the MYSTERY IN SPACE mega-sized one-shot which came out last week. Drawn by Ryan Sook, it's a wonderful example of an illustration that provokes a multitude of ideas and a great sense of wonder. And consider yourself amazingly lucky if you get your hands on the variant cover by the one and only Mike Allred -- a startling "Blue Man" treat with a magic and mystery all its own.  Mike also contributes one of my personal favorite stories in the book-- "Alpha meets Omega", a poignant and trippy tale. Also in the book are stories by Andy Diggle, Michael Kaluta, Ann Nocenti, Kyle Baker, Rob Rodi, Davide Gianflece, Fred Harper ( last seen at Vertigo in ANIMAL MAN of the mid 90s!), Ramon Bachs, Kevin McCarthy, Ming Doyle and debut Vertigo work by Francesco Trifogli ( who you will be seeing more from later this year), Steve Orlando, Sebastian Fiumara, and award-winning fantasy writer Nnedi Okorafor!

Just like STRANGE ADVENTURES and THE UNEXPECTED anthologies we published over the last year, MYSTERY IN SPACE showcases incredible stories from many delightfully twisted talents, so be sure to get yourself a copy.

And may your mysteries be many!
