"Comics have always had a pretty rich tradition of telling meaningful stories with anthropomorphized animals. I thought experimenting with that genre in a standalone graphic novel would be a good way to push myself, get away from my usual dumb pop-culture references and shocking cliffhangers. At the same time, I was also hungry to write something that addressed my conflicted feelings about the Iraq War. When I read reports about this pride of escaped lions, everything just kind of fell into place."

It's a Vertigo book.

Its high concept's the immediately interesting kind that makes you wary, makes you wonder if that's just going to end up being a superficially captivating glaze hiding layers of clichés and too-familiar turns.

It's also the kind that makes you wonder if it's going to be fleshed out at the expense of storytelling, makes you think that you might be getting a tract instead of a story.

So far, it doesn't seem in danger of either of those things.

Its first issue introduces captivating concepts, developing them through engaging scenes. )

Ben Blacker: "[T]his is a book about women, this is a book about powerful women – and I am a white, straight men, and as much as I try to write with empathy, the fact of it is that I still have my point of view, I have the 40 years I’ve lived and my experiences, which can translate or not, which is why it was very important to me, and I’ve said this from the beginning, that I have as many women’s voices on the book as possible, and that everyone has a voice on this book. That’s the only way to make it honest; that’s the only way to tell this story without shortchanging the truth of it, really."

"The idea was that each character would represent a genre of horror. We both grew up on a blood-soaked diet of ‘80s horror films. Almost everyone knows the story of The Exorcist, Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, Fright Night and so on. In their own way they have become our generation's fairy tales or mythology. We draw a lot on that mythology in Survivors’ Club – but subvert it in interesting and unexpected ways." -- Dale Haverson
