The Vertigo: Graphic Content blog runneth over with announcements and hints of new things in the works. Among the higlights . . .
Remember the great Vertigo Winter’s Edge specials of yesteryear? It seems that the imprint will be doing a turn on that notion during the incredibly appropriate time of Halloween. The House of Mystery Halloween Annual will include a framing story and other shorts familiar Vertigo series and creators. As Pamela Mullin tells it:
This special 48-page book will contain a framing story by the regular HOM creative team, writer Matthew Sturges and artists Luca Rossi and Jose Marzan Jr. However, it will also included short stories from HELLBLAZER by Peter Milligan, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini and MADAME XANADU by Matt Wagner, Amy Reeder Hadley and Richard Friend as well as a special MERV PUMPKINHEAD tale (the first in over 8 years!) by Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham and Kevin Nowlan.
Also of note is the forthcoming series I, Zombie. That book comes from writer Chris Roberson and brilliant artist Mike Allred. The title will follow a female zombie detective in a monster-filled world. And you know it’s going to look amazing.
