One of the best anthologies in recent memory.
Vertigo’s new Mystery in Space anthology is so much more than a loose collection of stories. Several of these unconnected tales boggle the mind, break the laws of physics, and challenge humanity’s concept of reality. Over the course of more than 70 consistently gorgeous pages, Duane Swierczynski, Michael Allred, Andy Diggle, and many more tell their own short stories that will satisfy fans of both science fiction and quality storytelling.

The fallout hits Arcadia’s candidacy.

Like most Vertigo titles, the slow and deliberate pace of Saucer Country is welcome, as the dedicated introduction and development of characters will surely yield a rewarding experience as the series unfolds.

With the start of his brand new series, Bill Willingham catches readers up on a certain Sleeping Beauty.
Bill Willingham’s new series Fairest is sure to be a welcome addition to the increasingly giant Fables universe. It is fair to say that the Fables universe has outgrown its titular book, with an ever increasing amount of plot-threads not forgotten, but clearly dangling waiting to be explored. In Fairest, Willingham picks up one of longest waiting storylines, Briar Rose’s sacrificial self-induced slumber to help win the war against The Adversary. In typical Willingham fashion, however, things can never be easy for any Fables character.
