This May, Vertigo will publish Mystery in Space an oversized one shot anthology in the vein of the classic science fiction comic book series.

Following last year's Vertigo one shot anthologies Strange Adventures and The Unexpected, Mystery in Space will be written and drawn by some of the top talent in the industry and will introduce some incredible newcomers.

Journey to the edge of the abyss with a story written and drawn by Mike Allred! Arrive in the middle of an intergalactic space heist with a story written and drawn by Paul Pope! Loaded with unsettling stories that will hijack your imagination and and take you to strange mysterious places Mystery in Space will also include stories by fantasy and science fiction writer Nnedi Okorafor with art by Michael Wm. Kaluta, novelist and comic book writer Robert Rodi with art by Sebastian Fiumara, as well as Ann Nocenti, Fred Harper, Andy Diggle, Davide Gianfelice, Steve Orlando, Francesco Trifogli, Ming Doyle and others.

Below is the variant cover by Mike Allred, (Madman, iZombie). The main cover will be by Ryan Sook.

Honestly, I was only initially interested because Paul Pope and Mike Allred are two of my favourite artists. But man, look at the creative talent they've got for this title...

Most of those names mean nothing to me but I'm still excited for this book, I hope this bi-annual anthology is a tradition they keep up, however, it probably won't be long before they run out of old DC titles to use in a modern comic
