New interviews, and the Vertigo Comics 2012 sampler

Three new interviews with me have gone online over the last couple of days. These are at:


I’ve been trying to get on top of my comic to-be-read pile recently, but when I heard that Vertigo Comics (DC’s mature imprint) had put out a sampler of forthcoming titles that includes Saucer Country by Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly, The New Deadwardians by Dan Abnett and INJ Culbard, and Fairest by Bill Willingham, Phil Jimenez, Andy Lanning and Adam Hughes (with a future story arc by Lauren Beukes), I just had to grab it from my local comic store.

And I’m glad I did. For some reason I’ve never really delved into the world of Vertigo (although I do have every issue of The Unwritten by Mike Carey to make a start on at some point), perhaps because superhero comics are my primary interest and it’s hard enough to keep up with them, without adding anything else to the pile. But this sampler is a knockout – I’m definitely going to pick up the above-mentioned titles when they hit, plus Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child – the only one of the four new titles in the sampler that doesn’t have anyone I know involved (which is itself a cool and strange thing).

And it’s free, so check it out.
