Its almost a year now (6 days away to be precise) since the first issue of The Wake written by Scott Snyder (BATMAN), drawn by Sean Gordon Murphy (PUNK ROCK JESUS) came out from Vertigo comics. Its now on its 8th Issue and its still as good as it was in the beginning. Each issue is filled with suspense and excitement. I see it as a 80’s sci-fi thriller, just imagine The Thing meets Alien but at the depths of the ocean unknown.
“THERE’S SOMETHING DOWN THERE…”
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 oilrig where they’ve discovered something miraculous and terrifying…
Writer Scott Snyder (BATMAN, AMERICAN VAMPIRE) and artist Sean Murphy (PUNK ROCK JESUS) bring their acclaimed talents to this sci-fi/horror epic that explores the horrors of the deep, probes the origins of human history, and leaps far beyond to a frightening future.
Go find all 8 issues if you can or pick up The Wake Part 1 collecting the first 5 issues. Well worth a read!!
