“Beneath the surface, set amidst the claustrophobic yet beautiful and sweeping ocean-scapes, a discovery is made that will reveal a secret mythology. Full of suspense and horror, THE WAKE is an underwater sci-fi epic like none other.”
Hot on the heels of the announcement that he will be writing a brand new Superman book with legendary artist Jim Lee, best selling author and current writer for DC’s Batman, Scott Snyder will be taking on yet another series. This time from DC’s Vertigo imprint. The American Vampire writer will team up with artist Sean Murphy on a limited series entitled “The Wake”.
Vertigo caught up with Snyder ahead of his appearances at NYCC this year and he had the following to say about “The Wake”, which is from Vertigo Comics and out in 2013!
“This is a story Sean and I have actually been developing together for more than a year, a big, twisted, sprawling science fiction and horror epic, all of which begins with a single, terrifying discovery at the bottom of the ocean. It’s one of the most ambitious stories I’ve ever done, and there’s no one I’d rather be creating it with than Sean Murphy. Sean’s a great friend and we had a blast together on AMERICAN VAMPIRE: Survival of the Fittest; luckily, he’s also one of the industry’s brightest new stars, someone with unrivaled abilities as a world-builder—every scene he draws is so fully realized, so richly imagined, it’s hugely inspiring working with him, and I’m grateful to him for signing on to be my partner at the end of the world, here.”
