Vertigo Announces Strange Adventures #1
What will the comic be about? From the far reaches of space to the not so distant future, Vertigo will bring you a collection of 8 ten page science fiction short stories as only Vertigo can do them.
To make this even sweeter, the Eisner award-winning team of 100 Bullets, Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso reunite to bring you the first chapter of their upcoming new series SPACEMAN.
Check out the cover by Paul Pope. There will also be a variant cover by Mark Buckingham. Be sure to let your local comic shop know that they must order a copy of this series for you.
Vertigo already did a Strange Adventures miniseries (four issues) back in 1999 with contributors like Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons and Brian Azzarello. Of course, I'm excited for this one because it involves Milligan (who's one of the best writers in the industry) and Snyder and Lemire who I'd love to see more of besides their current babies at Vertigo so I can have a more full-rounded opinion on their writing.
Also, Paul Pope FTW!
Although, this confuses me because last year Vertigo announced it was no longer doing DC-related stuff...this has DC written all over it....since it was one of their longest titles (but then again so was House of Mystery which is still ongoing at Vertigo...confusing stuff)
" Either that's the variant or you mixed up the names in the last paragraph=] Paul Pope's stuff is a little bit unmistakable "yeah...the cover makes me think of Buckingham, looks like his Snow White's face there
although...Paul Pope's variant cover for American Vampire didn't seem as "unmistakable" as his interior art always has been IMO
" @ComicMan24 said:For a second there I thought that was Metamorpho. I was like "They can use DC characters again?!" but sadly tis not the case.
" Isn't that Ultra the Multi-Alien? "
If it's not him, it's his twin brother :-)
" @thechessclub: @aztek the lost: I'm just going with what Vertigo said... "I understand but if you had to go off your own judgment, you'd assume that cover is Buckingham, right? doesn't it look similar to his Fables work?
" @G-Man: actually scratch that, I know it's Buckingham, I can see his signature...I was looking for it in the bottom right but it's on the left "Yeah, I saw that too=P *Jumping High Five for being kick ass detectives!*
But to actually comment on the topic at hand..I'll be picking this up at the very least for the Pope cover. Then if it strikes my fancy, I'll get the rest. This sort of thing is right up my alley too what with the Mysteries in Space feel to it...
