After a brief hiatus, Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s creepy cool Vertigo series The Wake continues today with THE WAKE #6. Now, if you’re reading this post on DCComics.com (or even if you’ve come across it on VertigoComics.com), there’s a fair chance you haven’t been picking this one up. And that’s a shame because it’s amazing. For a sci-fi/horror book, this tale asks some big questions and seems to span a considerable length of time (we’re talking millennia). There’s quite a lot we still don’t know about this sci-fi tale, however, here are a few things that we do…
We’ve seen the future of Batman and it is… LEGO bricks? Okay, maybe not, but Batman gets a healthy dose of both in our latest episode of DC All Access. First, Scott Snyder joins us via our magic screen (that’s right…maaaaagic!) to discuss this week’s future shock Batman #28. Then later in the episode, LEGO Blair interviews a few of the DC Comics super heroes who are featured in the smash hit The Lego Movie.
This week, the editors at AMAZON.COM released their picks for Best Books of the Year. Making their list of top Comics and Graphic Novels for 2013 was BATMAN VOL. 3: DEATH OF THE FAMILY, THE UNWRITTEN: TOMMY TAYLOR AND THE SHIP THAT SANK TWICE and SOLO: THE DELUXE EDITION.
The long awaited return of AMERICAN VAMPIRE is nearing. Set to ramp up in March 2014, the series picks up with our favorite vampires in the notorious 1960s. What’s in store for Skinner Sweet and Pearl Jones? We’ll have to wait and see.
"AMERICAN VAMPIRE definitely has a special flavor,” says series artist and co-creator Rafael Albuquerque. “After working daily with these characters for so long, Scott and I feel connected to them, just as if they were real people, somehow. Returning to that feels like getting back home after a long, long trip."
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.
You are cordially invited to a party—to die for!
