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.
On Tuesday you discussed your favorite works by Peter Milligan. Now, here are the covers to some of his upcoming titles. SHADE THE CHANGING MAN Vol. 1: SHADE THE CHANGING MAN Vol. 2 : GREEK STREET #4:
Lot’s happened this week. Here's a roundup of those not to be missed. LARGEHEARTED BOY posts Jeff Lemire's fantastic music playlist for THE NOBODY. In his introduction Jeff writes, “I've always preferred sad songs. They don't make me sad, they just make me "feel more." Now, that's something I can totally relate to. Check it out!
Just days away from publication and GREEK STREET has people (well, not just any people, some of the most renowned names in comic history) yelling its praises from the US and across the pond from London. Ah, London, the setting of GREEK STREET and all its glorious inhabitants. “Sex, death, ambition, revenge and a reminder that some stories are too true and too dangerous to ever die. GREEK STREET crackles with Promethean fire.” —Grant Morrison “A mind-bending mashup of ancient myth and modern mayhem!” —Dave Gibbons, artist of WATCHMEN
THE BRONX KILL by Peter Milligan and artist James Romberger Awesome, right?
Millison and Morrigan. Morrison and Milligan. However you say it, those bizarre boys are at it again, and all is right with my world. Whenever these guys write for Vertigo, everyone stops and listens because these two most insanely talented, too smart for our own good know what gutsy, passionate stories are all about. They hold the big V record for writing the most creator-owned series for Vertigo, and certainly the most diverse and out-there.
