FIRST LOOK: The Sick And Twisted ‘A Sickness In The Family’ From Vertigo Comics

I am officially intrigued. Most people know author Denise Mina (“HELLBLAZER”, “A SLIP OF THE KNIFE”) for her crime novels as she is a very celebrated and lauded novelist in the genre of literature, but later this year she will be making another foray into the world of comics with “A SICKNESS IN THE FAMILY”, an all new original graphic novel. The title looks to be very interesting, and inside you can get your first ever look inside the title. Read on for the skinny.

WRITTEN BY: Denise Mina
ILLUSTRATIONS BY: Antonio Fuso
COVERS BY: Lee Bermejo

“Meet the Ushers. (By the way, this name is no accident). The parents, Ted and Biddy. Grandma Martha. The three kids, William, Amy and Sam. Just a normal, middle class family gathered around the table on Christmas Day. Until they start dying very violent deaths. One by one. As secrets and resentments boil to the surface, it becomes clear there’s more than one Usher with a motive for killing off the others. But in the end, the truth turns out to be far more shocking than anyone in the ill-fated family could have imagined.”
