This is the third season in a column that judges a book by its cover. Catch up on the current season, or view the complete archive. I hope you’re not tired of me talking about textless covers yet, because I’ve still got so much to say! This week: the textless wraparound cover. Maybe the two most […]
Well here is some news that couldn’t make me happier. User, a book originally published by Vertigo around the turn of the century, is finally being collected at Image. It’s coming in May. I was an editor on this book (although Joan Hilly did all the heavy lifting) and I can say with a little pride that […]

Shawn Ryan, of The Shield and David Wiener of The Killing are set to write the screenplay. Set in the Wildstorm universe, the tale involves an undercover […]
English artist Sean Phillips is perhaps best known for his marvelous collaborations with Ed Brubaker like Fatale and Criminal, but he’s a general MVP of comics with atmospheric, exciting art in every genre. And in October Dynamite is putting out THE ART OF SEAN PHILLIPS, a 312 page hardcover by Phillips and Eddie Robson, with […]

Marvel accidentally left these two books out of their solicitations, but any excuse to run some Sean Phillips art makes us happy.
