When the Department of Homeland Security approaches Marine Biologist Lee Archer for help with a new threat, she finds herself plunged into the depths of the Arctic Circle to a secret, underwater oil rig known as the “Ghost Rig” with other scientists specializing in various biological fields. There, they discover something both miraculous and terrifying—a brand-new species that may just be the missing link…or a link to something even bigger. But when things go horribly wrong, and people begin to go missing, this scientific safe haven will turn into a house of horrors at the bottom of the ocean.
Multiple award-winning writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire) and artist Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus) explore the horrors of the deep, probe the origins of human history and leap far beyond to a frightening future.

Three Things We Know About The Wake
After a brief hiatus, Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s creepy cool Vertigo series The Wake continues today with THE WAKE #6.
