In the remote backwoods of Kentucky, people get by however they can, and for Iris Gentry, that means running moonshine so he can support his son and pregnant wife. But his simple life takes a turn for the…well, dark and bloody when a supernatural threat emerges. After all, when you’re isolated and miles from town, that’s an awfully long way to call for help.

Krak. Slam. Pop. And now…BANG!
For the last year, Vertigo has celebrated the art of the sound effect in comics by releasing anthologies in which creators use the chosen effect as inspiration. The short stories they’ve created have ranged from the serious to the absurd, with settings both realistic and fantastical.
Pitch the thieving heart of Ocean’s Eleven into a blender with a gin-and-puke-soaked copy of “Never Mind the Bollocks,” a touch of The Usual Suspects and an old copy of MAD Magazine (back when it used to be a little dirty) and you may just end up with Simon Oliver and Rufus Dayglo’s LAST GANG IN TOWN—a crazed crime caper that’s rude, crass and possibly the funniest thing you’ll read this season.
Lucifer, the brand new #DCTV show based on the classic Vertigo series, premieres tonight. That doesn’t give you a lot of time to get caught up on his 25-year comic book history. (Though you’re welcome to try. Lucifer’s original series as well as his brand new comic are both available digitally.) Fortunately, thanks to our friend Comic Drake, you don’t have to.
NEW ROMANCER is a clever mashup of rom-com, cyberthriller and supernatural sci-fi that features a reanimated Lord Byron running rampant across Silicon Valley pursued by a young Byron-obsessed developer who’s inadvertently behind his resurrection. It comes courtesy of Vertigo stalwart Peter Milligan and stylish new artist Brett Parson and with Issue #2 now in stores, we thought it would be a great time to ask the two creators for a little commentary on last month’s debut.
Who says you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? When the series is SLASH & BURN, the cover art is by the remarkable Tula Lotay and her process involves multiple steps that include everything from watercolor to photography, we’re not sure we agree. With SLASH & BURN #3 in stores today, we asked Lotay if she’d mind taking us through her process, step-by-step.
After taking a break for the holidays (even zombies like making gingerbread houses and exchanging gifts), iZombie returns tonight with an all-new episode that will kick off the second half of the season.
