Exclusive first look, A SICKNESS IN THE FAMILY cover!

The second is A SICKNESS IN THE FAMILY by award winning crime novelist Denise Mina in her first graphic novel and artist Antonio Fuso for Vertigo Crime.

Sometimes the greatest mysteries, and the most frightening horrors, occur right at home. I’m sure some of us can attest to that. Well, together, Mina and Fuso unravel a dark story of a family destroying itself from the inside out.
