SURVIVORS’ CLUB tells the story of six very different people who are drawn together by the horrors they experienced in 1987. But it’s also the tale of another six individuals.

Vertigo Comics was launched in 1993 as a venue for comic books and graphic novels that are edgier and more sophisticated in nature. Since its beginning, it has been home to some of the most acclaimed comics to come out of the medium—The Sandman, Fables, Y: The Last Man, Preacher, Transmetropolitan…The list goes on and is growing by the year.
