You never know where a dream is going to take you, something that readers of THE SANDMAN are reminded of the moment they get to issue #6 of the series and the story known as “24 Hours.” A nearly standalone tale, “24 Hours” is commonly acknowledged as one of the most disturbing comics ever written.
If you’ve ever had a pet that you cared deeply for, you know how magical that relationship can be. Well, in Vertigo’s ASTRO CITY #48, that magic takes a turn for the literal as a mystical amulet transforms petty thief Andy Merton and his Corgi, Hank, into the high-flying, half-canine super hero known as G-Dog.
Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley has returned with his years-in-the-making sequel to his acclaimed alternate history tale, THE AMERICAN WAY. The Civil Rights movement of the 1970s has gotten angrier and much more explosive as heroes such as the New American, Amber Waves and Ole Miss find themselves getting drawn in. But when things are no longer so black and white, will they find themselves on the right side of history?
Everything’s bigger in Texas, which is perhaps why the conclusion of Dave Justus, Lilah Sturges and Travis Moore’s tale of the magical Shadow Players feels so big. Seriously, there’s not a lot that this fantastic finale doesn’t check off. High speed motorcycle chase? Check. Metaphysical mysteries? Check. Kinky ghost sex? Check. Chupacabra goat sucking? Check. Oh, and true love? Check, check and check!
Anyone who’s read the news over the past year knows that our country is pretty deeply divided right now. That’s a troubling situation regardless of what side you happen to fall on, but reading John Ridley, Georges Jeanty and Karl Story’s THE AMERICAN WAY, I was reminded that this isn’t the first time our nation has seen this. Of course, whether that makes it less or more worrying probably depends a lot on what you choose to focus on.
If you’re a fan of iZombie, The CW’s just-returned adaptation of the classic Vertigo comic, then you know the key role that food plays on the show. iZombie’s take on the walking dead is far from the lumbering, decomposing, eating-straight-out-of-the-skull zombie that we’ve seen in most movies and shows. These zombies are intelligent, fully sentient individuals indistinguishable from the rest of us…provided they get their brains and a good spray tan.
A brutal chase between former clandestine terrorist operatives unfolds with today’s debut of SAVAGE THINGS. Series artist and co-creator Ibrahim Moustafa is here to give us a head start with an introduction to unpredictable associates Abel and Kira, and an exclusive, step-by-step look at his process for crafting chaos.
