Written by Snyder and drawn by Sean Murphy, The Wake is a 10-issue Vertigo miniseries that’s now available in a hardcover collected edition. Part deep sea horror, part post-apocalyptic sci-fi, The Wake is unlike anything you’ve ever read before.
San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us, and DC Comics certainly had a successful show. No matter where you looked in the convention center and beyond, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, the Flash and hundreds of other heroes and villains from the DC Universe were proudly on display. From morning to night, you could find them on comic covers, in movie and TV stills, in videogames, on toys, collectibles and clothing, and wandering around the aisles of the show floor and the streets of the Gaslamp District from morning to night.
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…
