Vertigo continues to defy genres with the announcement of the new 8-issue comic book miniseries THE NAMES. Written by the legendary Peter Milligan with art by Leandro Fernandez this fast paced and exciting new series set in New York City follows the wife of trader Kevin Walker after his apparent suicide.
In an interview with DC ALL ACCESS writer Peter Milligan gives us some insight into the series and we get a sneak peek at some interior art.
THE NAMES is a dark, contemporary thriller set in the world of Big Money: hedge funds, leveraged buyouts, market raids, flash crashes. High-end finance that can ruin entire economies, run by a cabal of the world’s richest (and sickest) people.
Now, it’s up to Katya Walker – the beautiful and deadly wife of the late Kevin – to take on this hidden power structure and find out who killed her husband, and why. No matter what it takes. No matter who she has to kill.
It’s The Wolf of Wall Street meets Kill Bill. And heaven help the 1%.
Check out the cover by Celia Calle in the gallery above. Be sure to pick up THE NAMES #1 when it arrives September 3rd!
