I landed in the world of comics somewhat by chance. I had studied literature, and I always dreamed of writing, but I never imagined I’d become a comic book author. It’s all thanks to Sylvain. Before meeting him, I didn’t really read comics (I must have read Tarzan when I was 13, and my next comic book was Blue Pills by Frederik Peeters when I was 23).
Over the next several days we'll be publishing posts about some of the short stories and their creative teams included in STRANGE ADVENTURES #1. I asked Senior VP, Executive Editor Karen Berger to start us off and here's what she has to say: Hi Everyone, Make sure you check out STRANGE ADVENTURES #1, on sale today-- It’s a great and weird anthology as only Vertigo can produce!
This May, Vertigo will publish STRANGE ADVENTURES #1, a collection of science fiction short stories as only Vertigo can do them. Written and drawn by some of the comic industries most sought after talents, STRANGE ADVENTURES also features some exciting new talents making their Vertigo debut! This volume also includes, the first chapter of SPACEMAN, a new series by the Eisner award-winning team of 100 BULLETS, Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso debuting this Fall.
Vertigo has lots of wonderful graphic novels slated for 2011 and we're going to make some publishing news today. We've got the announcement of a memoir, the unveiling of a terrific blurb and an exclusive first look at an interior piece of art from one. Enjoy. So you’ve read Persepolis, Palestine, and CUBA: My Revolution among others. What’s next to curb your appetite for smart, personal, and poignant graphic novels? Well, we’ve got it. Get ready for MARZI to be published this Fall.
