Vertigo Rave

    (Vertigo, 1994)
™ and ©1994 DC Comics, Inc.

This late 1994 sampler previewed more of Vertigo’s interesting collection of upcoming projects. The list begins with Mobfire, a series that mixes the supernatural with a venerable order of British gangsters.

Next comes a trio of one-shots for the Vertigo Voices series. First of them is the disturbing Face, wherein a famous artist hires a renowned plastic surgeon to create a living “masterpiece.” Grant Morrison follows with teens in search of deadly thrills in Kill Your Boyfriend. Last is Tainted, a dark tale about darker secrets.

Shadows Fall is the story of a man in search of his lost shadow. Unlike Peter Pan’s, however, this missing shadow seems intent on murder. Mr. Punch is a wonderful graphic novel by the dream team of McKean and Neil Gaiman (Sandman). The Rave closes out with previews of the current Vertigo line, plus a new Books of Magic story.
