Earlier today at MTV Geek, the cover for “The Wake” #1, by Scott Snyder, Sean Gordon Murphy and Vertigo Comics, was revealed, along with a description of the series, and an announced arrival date of May 1st.
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 oil rig where they’ve discovered something miraculous and terrifying…
Writer Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy bring their acclaimed talents to this sci-fi epic that explores the horrors of the deep, probes the origins of human history, and leaps far beyond to a frightening future.
A variant cover by Adam Kubert has also been announced.
We are big fans of both of these gentlemen, and the 10-issue series is one of the few projects Vertigo has put forth for 2013 thus far. We look forward to getting more details about the book as May gets closer.
