CRACK BANG BOOM CON, Argentina--PART 1

CRACK BANG BOOM CON, Argentina -- PART ONE
(now with handy phrase guide!)

OCTOBER 2009
So i’m sitting in this lovely outdoor cafe in Lucca, Italy eating this insanely great sliced-steak with Eduardo Risso (co-creator/artist of 100 BULLETS) and he says to me out of the blue, “Would you be interested in coming to a comic convention in my hometown of Rosario, Argentina next fall?”...hmm...let me check my schedule...uhhh, YEAH!

Two new additions to Vertigo Crime

Vertigo Crime has published works from the likes of authors Ian Rankin, Brian Azzarello, Jason Starr, Christos Gage and many others. Today, we add two more titles to the ever growing list of excellent crime/mystery graphic novels.

In RAT CATCHER by Andy Diggle (The Losers) and artist Victor Ibanez, an FBI agent and a notorious mob hitman become involved in a thriller with a twist that keeps the action moving and the characters playing a high stakes game of cat and mouse.

What Vertigo titles do you recommend giving this holiday season?

I’d recommend the latest issue of SCALPED cuz nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a gritty crime comic about a meth-addicted, under-cover FBI agent with a heroin junkie for a girlfriend, a murdered mother, and a pretend job as an enforcer for the local Mob boss who would not hesitate to kill him if he found out the truth. God bless us all...everyone!” –Will Dennis

Who's your favorite femme fatale?

Vertigo Crime has officially launched!

In honor of the publication of FILTHY RICH by Brian Azzarello and artist Victor Santos and its femme fatale Vicki, I’d like to pose a question to all Vertigo GRAPHIC CONTENT readers.

Who’s your favorite femme fatale and why? Brigid O'Shaughnessy in Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon? Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct? Phyllis Nirdlinger in James M. Cain’s Double Indemnity? Vivian Rutledge in Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep?

Let the conversation begin!
