Terminal City

    (Vertigo, 1996-1997)
™ and ©1996 Dean Motter

Terminal City is a stylish nine-issue mini-series featuring an assortment of unusual characters set in a future that writer Dean Motter calls “Antique Futurism. The world of tomorrow from yesterday’s point of view.” The Art Deco style that artist Michael Lark employs is a prominent part of the charm of this unique story which depicts hover cars with 1950s-style fins and robot desk clerks capable of independent thought in spite of whirring and clicking like obsolete machinery.

Former daredevil, now window-washer, Cosmo Quinn; Li’l Big Lil, albino gang boss; and the mysterious Lady in Red are just a few of the intriguing characters whose lives intersect at the formerly posh hotel, The Herculean Arms, in a town that is a living anachronism—Terminal City.
