There are few titles that scream Halloween for me as much as Chris Roberson’s throwback title “I, ZOMBIE”. The story, while not for everyone, seems to capture that feeling of when you would read horror comics as a kid, and for that I give the creative team over at Vertigo a lot of credit. Beyond the break you will find a 5 page preview of the sixth issue that goes on sale next Wednesday. Read on for the skinny!
There are just some projects that you know from the second you hear about them that they are going to be a hit. So is the case with scribe Chris Roberson’s upcoming monthly from Vertigo titled “I, ZOMBIE”. Inside you’ll find the full press release about the upcoming project due out on May 5th, as well as the 7 page teaser! Still not interested? What if I told you that the first issue was going to be the same price as a cheeseburger? Read on for the skinny.
Often times it is easy to overlook things that might seem small or even miniscule when compared to the things around them. It is too true that in many cases these seemingly small, inferior things possess far more potential than their peers. This is the case for many aspects of our lives. Literature is a prime example. With so many stories glutting store shelves, with everybody and their mother writing a story (and even the dog & cat seem to get in on the action these days), and publishers clamoring to find the next “TWILIGHT” or “HARRY POTTER”, the ultimate loser just could wind up being the consumers themselves. After all, quantity isn’t quality and no matter how deep you look you might not ever find that needle in the haystack. That is unless or until it drives itself into your finger and makes you notice.
We’re only one week away (June 9) from the TPB release of Vertigo’s House of Mystery Vol. 2: Love Stories For Dead People, the second volume collecting 128 pages of the latest from DC’s sister company. Fans of horror anthologies are going to not wanna miss this.
Matthew Sturges, writer of the Eisner-nominated JACK OF FABLES, and his JACK co-writer Bill Willingham, the creator of FABLES, proudly unlock the doors to the HOUSE OF MYSTERY, a new graphic novel series that reinvents the classic DC Comics concept. It focuses on five characters trapped in a supernatural bar, trying to solve the mystery of how and why they’re imprisoned there. Each one has a terrible past they’d like to forget, and with no books, newspapers or TV allowed in the House, they face an eternity of boredom. But stories become the new currency, and fortunately, the House attracts only the finest storytellers.
