You guys know us: we’re big fans of AMERICAN VAMPIRE and BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS writer SCOTT SNYDER, so when we saw he was doing a new horror-themed series with artist SEAN MURPHY (JOE THE BARBARIAN, PUNK ROCK JESUS); we knew we were in for a treat.
They call it the “Ghost rig.” A secret, underwater oil rig filled with roughnecks and scientists on the brink of an incredible discovery.
But, when things go horribly wrong, this scientific safe haven will turn into a house of horrors at the bottom of the ocean.
We loved the first issue of THE WAKE, and cannot wait to dive into the second one this week.
The entire story, both in terms of art and writing, conjures up a very cool, John Carpenter’s THE THING kinda vibe, and we love it.
Wanna get into it? We’ve got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up to this week’s #2.
