Scottish crime novelist and International guest of honor at this weekend’s Bouchercon, Denise Mina, spoke with USA TODAY about her Vertigo Crime graphic novel A SICKNESS IN THE FAMILY illustrated by Antonio Fuso.
Vertigo Crime has published works from the likes of authors Ian Rankin, Brian Azzarello, Jason Starr, Christos Gage and many others. Today, we add two more titles to the ever growing list of excellent crime/mystery graphic novels.
In RAT CATCHER by Andy Diggle (The Losers) and artist Victor Ibanez, an FBI agent and a notorious mob hitman become involved in a thriller with a twist that keeps the action moving and the characters playing a high stakes game of cat and mouse.
Lee Bermejo talks Vertigo Crime Covers:
I'm going to spin a yarn here. People always say that every story has a beginning, middle, and end so let's start at the beginning.
And don't forget:

Blame The Killer Inside Me.
It’s spring of 1991 -- well, really winter since I was living in Ithaca, NY where it’s warm likes two weeks out of the year -- there was a big recession on, a war in Iraq, I was only working part-time (some things never change, right? jk) and I’m standing in an independent bookstore and this scary-ass face is staring back at me. It’s the cover to The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson. Never heard of him. But loved the jacket design (Day-Glo orange stripes with black type and a creepy black lizard on it) and so I picked it up.
