Publishers Weekly‘s Comics Week also confirms something that’s been speculated about since at least September: Vertigo will release a new edition of Demo, Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan’s Eisner-nominated series.
The 12-issue series, first published in 2003 by AiT/Planet Lar, tells self-contained stories about ordinary, if often troubled, young people with extraordinary powers. It was collected as a trade paperback in 2005.
In September, Wood and Cloonan announced the publishing and media rights had reverted back to them, kicking off rumors that Demo would find a home at Vertigo. DC-exclusive Wood is writing DMZ and Northlanders for the imprint, while Cloonan has been illustrating American Virgin, which ends in January.
Rich Johnston has reported that a new Demo series is planned at Vertigo.
