Artist Annie Wu illustrates Jordan Mayer's directorial debut, "Mystery House," in HOUSE OF MYSTERY #41 out now. She took some time out to chat with us about some of her pop culture favs.
First comic book you remember reading: Either Old Master Q or 13-Dot. I'm sure it was some manhua my family gave to me.
Best music for making Jordan Mayer's film come to life: Tuvan throat singing over a sick beat. I'm only half-joking, because that would actually be pretty cool.
Favorite artist(s): I have too many favorites, but I've been looking at a lot of Bernini and Robert McGinnis lately.
Favorite Vertigo book(s): Y: The Last Man was a huge deal for my friends and me in high school. And I'm a late-comer to the House of Mystery party but it's been tremendously fun.
Last movie you saw that you can admit to: This just made me realize that the last films I saw in theatres and on Netflix were both by Buster Keaton -- Steamboat Bill, Jr. and Sherlock, Jr. Maybe I have a problem.
Guilty pleasure movie for rainy Saturdays: The edited-to-bits cable version of Showgirls, always.
Favorite book: I'm sure to change my mind, but let's just go with my childhood favorite, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. No, wait --
Most mysterious city you've been to: Hong Kong, for so many reasons.
Scariest/weirdest/nastiest part of living in NYC: The birds aren't afraid of people. And they keep trying to fly into my mirrored sunglasses.
Now check out a page from her story in HOUSE OF MYSTERY written by Matt Sturges.
This Fall, Vertigo is thrilled to bring you BAD DOINGS AND BIG IDEAS: A BILL WILLINGHAM DELUXE EDITION, collecting dark tales of the fantastic. This massive 464 page volume features numerous miniseries starring members of The Sandman’s cast, including Thessaly, the fan-favorite character from THE SANDMAN: A GAME OF YOU, and the last of the deadly Thessalian witches, as well as PROPOSITION PLAYER, a story about celestial poker, dark fantasy tales from HOUSE OF MYSTERY and much more.
This month's short story--an outer space romance and adventure--in HOUSE OF MYSTERY #36 on sale today, is illustrated by special guest artist Darwyn Cooke!
Here’s a peek at what’s inside. Fantastic looking, right?
This Valentine’s Day I asked the Vertigo editors to pick a few couples from both classic and current Vertigo titles that defy our expectations of coupledom. I hope you enjoy this unique twist on the holiday we love to not love.
Let’s start off with Will Dennis’ picks:
DASH & CAROL RED CROW from SCALPED
I wouldn’t call them happy but they had a pretty good run. It’s hard when you are each other’s heroin...and you’re using heroin at the same time. I don’t think Hallmark makes a card for that.
MATTY & ZEE from DMZ
Again another couple that’s off again/on again is probably not a model for Valentine’s Day romance. Still, when you live in a bombed out war-zone and each day could be your last, it’s nice to have a FWB.
SHELLEY BOND & JOHN CONSTANTINE
I never really saw them together since he’s a bit of a cad and sort of stuck in the Seventies. oh wait...now that I say that, it makes total sense. I really wish them the best in their new marriage and I look forward to more covers featuring Shelly. ya know, like iZOMBIE, DONOR, NEW YORK FIVE, CINDERELLA, etc, etc
In response Shelly Bond says, “That guy needs a reality show.” Here are her picks:
SNOW WHITE & BIGBY WOLF from FABLES
She’s likely to be wearing a demure business suit.
“Isn’t it Romantic?” By Rodgers and Hart
See where it all began in FABLES Vol. 3: STORYBOOK LOVE
JOHN CONSTANTINE & EPIPHANY GREAVES from HELLBLAZER
She’s a 23-year-old smoking hot alchemist/gangster’s daughter
He’s a 58-year-old chain-smoking, pint guzzling, detective of the dark arts who’s still missing a thumb
“Heroes” by Bowie
See them get hitched in HELLBLAZER #275
GWEN & ? from iZOMBIE
Monster Hunter, Mummy Guy or Mutt/Were-terrier?
One gorgeous blue-haired, violet skinned brain eater, so little time...left...that she can remember...
Get into it from the grave site in iZOMBIE: DEAD TO THE WORLD, out next month!)
“Love is the Drug” by Roxy Music
FIG KEELE & HARRY THE HOUSE from HOUSE OF MYSTERY
An architecture student, Fig drew the plans for her dream house. Then she brought him to life as Harry the handsome bartender. It was all good, until it wasn’t as Harry was taken away.
“Take the L out of Lover (and it’s Over)” by The Motels
Enter the House via the latest trade UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
Last, but not least, Karen Berger gives her picks:
SWAMP THING and ABBY from SWAMP THING
He went to Hell and back for her—how could she not fall for the guy?
JESSE CUSTER and TULIP O'HARE from PREACHER
The most dangerous couple in comics survived treachery, separation, death, and resurrection—if that’s not true love, then what is?
YORICK and 355 from Y: THE LAST MAN
Turns out the woman of his dreams was by his side the whole time—his bodyguard—you gotta love it!
BRAS and ANA from DAYTRIPPER
A romance of a lifetime unfolds over a lifetime in this time-bending tale, DAYTRIPPER—a one way ticket to an incredible love and life story just out now in trade paperback.

Welcome to the HOUSE OF MYSTERY HALLOWEEN ANNUAL where this year the tricks and treats are even more spooky. So take a look inside for a sampling of what's in store.
The Witch Queen seems to think that Fig is very important, but the more time they spend together, the more the Witch Queen has her doubts in House of Mystery #28 written by Matt Sturges and artist by Luca Rossi. Plus, this month's short story is illustrated by cover artist Esao Andrews (FABLES: 1001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL) and stars the dearly departed Poet.
And for those of you who haven't heard yet, the line-up of this October's HOUSE OF MYSTERY HALLOWEEN ANNUAL was announced at the FABLES panel at San Diego Comic Con. Get ready for an amazing collection of stories. To start it off, Matt Sturges and Luca Rossi introduce a group of eternal trick-or-treaters who will make there way through new Lucifer story by Mike Carey and artist Peter Gross, Madame Xanadu by Matt Wagner and artist Jill Thompson, izombie by Chris Roberson and artist Mike Allred, and Hellblazer by Peter Milligan and artist Guiseppe Cumoncoli.
What a treat!
