The first volume of Vertigo’s Hinterkind by ianedginton and Francesco Trifogli is out today! It’s amazing to me that this book has stayed below the radar for so long. With its constantly intriguing mix of fantasy, dystopia, and adventure it’s only a matter of time until every comic blog out there is frothing over it.
I’ve heard that this book can fill the hole that Breaking Bad left in a lot of peoples’ hearts. Let me know what you think!
In the most surprising decision in comic book marketing history, we are having a V for Vendetta sale today!
Seriously though, if you haven’t read this book you need to get on it right now.
Also included in the sale are some other great Alan Moore classics worth mentioning like Tom Strong and his legendary run on Swamp Thing!
