Beginning with a cheeky tribute to Alan Moore's seminal V for Vendetta and wrapping up by bringing Forever Evil #3 to life in the halls of LA's Comikaze, "DC All Access" Episode 4 debuted this Tuesday with an episode that featured no shortage of fun moments and pages and pages of gorgeous comic book art.
On Saturday in Toronto, Jeff Lemire (Trillium, Green Arrow, Animal Man, "Trinity War") was honored as the winner of the Joe Shuster Award for Best Cartoonist/Auteur for his work on Sweet Tooth #29-40 (DC Comics) and The Underwater Welder (Top Shelf).
Established in 2004, The Joe Shuster Awards are Canada’s first national and bilingual award recognizing outstanding achievement in the creation of comic books, graphic novels and webcomics.
When it comes to defying expectations, look no further than Vertigo.
A mature readers imprint of DC Comics, Vertigo has long upheld a standard of mind-bendingly awesome storytelling with such award-winning classics like V for Vendetta, Hellblazer, Preacher, 100 Bullets, Fables, Y: The Last Man, Neil Gaiman's Sandman (all of which easily rank as some of our favorite comic series of all time), and so much more.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read TRILLIUM #1 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
No matter which way you start reading TRILLIUM #1, midway through the comic book you come to the exact same point in both stories: a single frame where our protagonists come face-to-face with the other—catching a glimpse, for the first time, of the person they’re destined to love.
Jeff Lemire [SWEET TOOTH, ANIMAL MAN, GREEN ARROW, TRINITY WAR] brings his talent to the new sci-fi love story TRILLIUM.
BLASTR gave us the exclusive first look inside the comic book, where we learn a bit about Nika and William and the reader decides which character’s story to begin with.
Lemire is not just the writer, he’s also the artist.
You are cordially invited to a party—to die for!
