I think I've ever read," says Ed Brubaker, co-author of GOTHAM CENTRAL People are talking about THE CHILL, by Jason Starr and artist Mick Bertilorenzi, the next Vertigo Crime book to hit the streets in January 2010.
Now, once you’ve read Vertigo Crime’s FILTHY RICH and DARK ENTRIES be on the lookout for Jason Starr’s first graphic novel THE CHILL with art by Mick Bertilorenzi coming in January 2010. THE CHILL is bound to heat up the winter. [gallery link="file"]
Blame The Killer Inside Me. It’s spring of 1991 -- well, really winter since I was living in Ithaca, NY where it’s warm likes two weeks out of the year -- there was a big recession on, a war in Iraq, I was only working part-time (some things never change, right? jk) and I’m standing in an independent bookstore and this scary-ass face is staring back at me. It’s the cover to The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson. Never heard of him. But loved the jacket design (Day-Glo orange stripes with black type and a creepy black lizard on it) and so I picked it up.
