Lots of cool announcements coming out of NYCC! Here’s the latest one thats got me pretty excited – Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy will be writing the new Vertigo series, The Wake. This scifi/horror series is set at the bottom of the ocean where a discovery is made that will reveal a secret mythology. The Wake is set to debut in 2013.
“I couldn’t be more excited about The Wake!” said Snyder about this new comic book series. “This is a story Sean and I have actually been developing together for more than a year, a big, twisted, sprawling science fiction and horror epic, all of which begins with a single, terrifying discovery at the bottom of the ocean. It’s one of the most ambitious stories I’ve ever done, and there’s no one I’d rather be creating it with than Sean Murphy. Sean’s a great friend and we had a blast together on AMERICAN VAMPIRE: Survival of the Fittest; luckily, he’s also one of the industry’s brightest new stars, someone with unrivaled abilities as a world-builder—every scene he draws is so fully realized, so richly imagined, it’s hugely inspiring working with him, and I’m grateful to him for signing on to be my partner at the end of the world, here.”
