“All good things must come to an end” I gave you that clue back in January. Smart readers guessed right, I was talking about NORTHLANDERS. I did not develop NORTHLANDERS from the start, I inherited it from editor Will Dennis, but I was always a fan and I’ve been very proud to work on this book with Brian Wood and an amazing list of artists over the years. Speaking of amazing artists, we have one of my all time favorite artists bringing this series to a close—DANIJEL ZEZELJ.
Mark Doyle here, editor of AMERICAN VAMPIRE, NORTHLANDERS and SWEET TOOTH. Every Monday I’ll be popping by the Vertigo blog to give you a glimpse of what’s flying across my desk these days. Since it’s a New Year, I thought I would give a little tease of things to come. Three clues, three books, do you know which clue applies to which title? All good things must come to an end.
