Back at New York Comic Con, Vertigo announced that Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy were teaming up once again for a new series, THE WAKE. You can check out that announcement HERE as well as our podcast when Sean appeared and briefly discussed the book.

Today Vertigo has released some more information including the cover to the first issue.

This is what Snyder first said about the series:

...a big, twisted, sprawling science fiction and horror epic, all of which begins with a single, terrifying discovery at the bottom of the ocean. It's one of the most ambitious stories I've ever done, and there's no one I'd rather be creating it with than Sean Murphy.

You can head over to MTV Geek for more on the main character of the series.

Is this an ongoing or a limited series?

#2 Posted by Loki2u (211 posts) - - Show Bio

Not usually my genre of choice, but with these two on the title I'll definitely be checking this out.

this does look cool but honestly I would trade every single Vertigo comic to have Hellblazer continue

Nice!!!

I thought Scott Snyder said he only wanted to do 3 books at a time? So will he be doing Batman, American Vampire, Superman and The Wake at once?

#15 Posted by Helsink (9 posts) - - Show Bio

@Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray: American Vampire is on a hiatus. It's not going to be coming out for a while.

In Scott Snyder (Batman) and Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus) We Trust.

I'm interested but I'll probably get this in trade form. I don't think my pull list fund will stretch any further...

@Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray: American Vampire is going on hiatus for about a year so Snyder can do The Wake

#34 Posted by DonFelipe (1096 posts) - - Show Bio

Excellent! I'm already caught in the wake!

#35 Posted by CombatSpoon86 (832 posts) - - Show Bio

#36 Posted by BoyWander (318 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes.

#37 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Limited series makes me think trade wait, but then again this is Snyder. Conflicted, conflicted I tell you!

#38 Posted by The Mast (788 posts) - - Show Bio

The perspective is weird. It looks like it's on both sides of the glass.

Aquatic horror comic? If DC ever wants Snyder to replace Johns on Aquaman, perhaps this is a good way to test the waters.

#44 Posted by CuddlyPlane (84 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely picking this up!

Sexy stuff for sure.
