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... )

One thing I'd like to be clear about: Punk Rock Jesus isn't a book about atheism nor am I grinding my ax. My wife is religious and so are my parents, and I'd be stunned if they didn't enjoy this book. There's a character in the book for everyone--at least that's how I've tried to write it. Nothing would bother me more if I had Christian readers who stopped being Sean Murphy fans because of Punk Rock Jesus.” – Sean Murphy

As was discussed in the most recent edition of House to Astonish, Vertigo had their lowest sales month on record in January 2012. Happily though, they're launching 4 new series soon, including a Fables spin-off with art by Adam Hughes ).

The one that caught my eye, out of the series released in the digital preview, was Saucer Country, by Ryan Kelly (artist of Local, which really is a fantastic book, and of New York 4 and 5), and written by Paul Cornell, of Action Comics, Demon Knights, Captain Britain and MI:13 et al.

Nicking the solicit text from Espanolbot's post you get

Arcadia Alvarado, the leading Democratic candidate for President of the United States, says she was "abducted by aliens."
As the Mexican-American Governor of New Mexico, she's dealing with immigration, budget cuts and an alcoholic ex. She's about to toss her hat into the ring as a candidate for President in the most volatile political climate ever.
But then...a lonely road and a nightmarish encounter have left her with terrible, half-glimpsed memories. And now she has to become President. To expose the truth – and maybe, to save the world.
Arcadia's quest is at the heart of this new monthly series from writer Paul Cornell (DEMON KNIGHTS, ACTION COMICS, Doctor Who) and artist Ryan Kelly (NEW YORK FIVE, NORTHLANDERS). With the help of her quirky staff, Arcadia will pursue the truth of her abduction into danger, mystery and awe. SAUCER COUNTRY is a dark thriller that blends UFO lore and alien abduction with political intrigue, all set in the hauntingly beautiful Southwest.

There's a small house ad and two pages from the preview underneath. It comes with a warning for discussion on domestic abuse
