the wake

At last October’s New York City Comic Con it was revealed that Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire) and Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus) were working on a new miniseries entitled “The Wake.” It’s been nearly three and a half months and we’re now getting more details on the series, including a synopsis, date and the official cover to the first issue.

The synopsis, according to Vertigo’s website, goes like this:

“When Marine Biologist Lee Archer is approached by the Department of Homeland Security for help with a new threat, she declines, but quickly realizes they won’t take no for an answer. Soon she is plunging to the depths of the Arctic Circle to a secret, underwater oil rig where they’ve discovered something miraculous and terrifying…

Writer Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy bring their acclaimed talents to this sic-fi epic that explores the horrors of the deep, probes the origins of human history, and leaps far beyond to a frightening future.”

The release date for “The Wake” #1 (of 10) will be May 1st.

      Definitely. With Snyder on board I knew it was going to be good but when you add Sean Murphy, whose Punk Rock Jesus was one of the best things released last year, and make it a horror comic, I was sold from the get go. Definitely one of my most anticipated comics of this year.

        Punk Rock Jesus was definitely on my top 5 list from last year – so The Wake is now on my radar and looking forward to it.
