This edition of Tuesday Tonic is dedicated to someone else’s book for a change. Shocked? You should be. Here’s a solid three-page sequence from SCALPED #59 — the penultimate issue of the series. The choreography alone blew my tiny little mind into bits of red fluff. If you’re not reading this bloody crime thriller, it’s the perfect time to double down and prep for the grand finale! The ninth trade paperback as well as issue #59 are in stores next month.
Comics have become pretty flashy these days...you can read them digitally on your ipad, kindle, phone, etc. The printed pages are slick, the colors are alive and the packaging is top grade. There’s movies, tv shows, toys, and numerous other ways to engage with the product. It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that at the heart of all this, it’s still comes down to lines of black ink on plain old white paper.
We’re about to look into the future. Look for these Vertigo titles to be published in Summer 2012. Please keep in mind this information is not final and may be subject to change. Coming in May 2012: AMERICAN VAMPIRE VOL.
