"For many, the ‘80s along with the ‘70s was a golden era for horror films. A lot of those films from then are deeply ingrained in pop culture. We all know the story of The Exorcist, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday The 13th and so on. They have almost become our generation’s fairytales. We draw a lot on that mythology in Survivors’ Club, but we take it in unexpected directions." - Dale Halvorsen

"Brainy, ambitious and delightfully scary, Survivors' Club is a throwback to books like The Sandman and Hellblazer that made Vertigo a legend" - Joe Kelly, Locke & Key (quote on the front cover of the issue)

Writers: Lauren Beukes and Dale Halvorsen
Artist: Ryan Kelly
Colorist: Eva De Cruz

Four numbered the murder scenes and investigating protagonists.

Four numbered the narrative threads, laid next to each other; they were linked through recurring elements and deft transitions.

The series kept the pacing steady by transitioning from one thread to an appropriate point in the next.

It did so right from the start. )

Vertigo recently released an anthology called CMYK.  Here's a panel from the first story, "Serial Artist," written by Shaun Simon, drawn by Tony Akins.

No one ever calls anyone the Charles Manson of pop-art.  Anyway, I thought this was funny.

The first issue of the Mad Max Fury Road comic, detailing the backstory of the Five Wives and Furiosa's involvement (though not much on her actual back story despite the title). If you've watched the movie, you know what to expect, but massive warning for rape as a subject matter. Also a warning of a semi-graphic attempted abortion scene.

Vertigo is to me what Image Comic seems to be others. While everyone gets excited over whatever Image puts out, Vertigo does that for me. It's produced some my favorite comics of all time (Fables, iZombie, Scalped, Saucer Country, and The Unwritten), but it has been falling on hard times recently. This imprint barely had any new titles at all!

...that is, until just recently...

The biggest difference is that "Punk Rock Jesus" is a much more mature book with more complicated themes than anything I've done before. I think it reflects what I've learned in the years between these books, the things I've read, the influences I've discovered, etc. "Punk Rock Jesus" was in my head before "Off-Road" -- the reason I put it aside was that I knew I wasn't ready for a project that intense. Only in the last few years have I felt more like I'm in a better place to handle the task.” – Sean Murphy

"I relate a lot to Chris. While I agree with most everything he says, his tactics are wrong. He's the version of me that never saw the value of diplomacy and patience. On my worst days, or when I'm drunk, I'm sure I can spout off a bit like Chris does from time to time. But I try not to." - Sean Murphy

In honour of the (sadly) recently-cancelled NBC series Constantine, here's a tribute to one of my favourite Hellblazer supporting characters.

Trigger warning for suicide. Also, contains content that may offend religious sensibilities (this is, after all, from Ennis's run).

If it is indeed the Lord who picks our friends for us... )
