Scott Snyder And Sean Murphy Announce New Vertigo Title ‘The Wake’ [NYCC 2012]

Scott Snyder has had a busy convention. Yesterday DC Comics announced that Snyder and Jim Lee will be collaborating, for the first time, on a new Superman title in 2013. And at today’s Vertigo panel, it was revealed that Snyder will team-up with his friend and previous collaborator Sean Murphy on The Wake, a new Vertigo miniseries set to debut next year.From DC’s blog The Source:

“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.”

Snyder and Murphy previously worked together on American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest, and have been planning to collaborate again ever since. Said Snyder:

“I couldn’t be more excited about The Wake! 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.”


Debuting in spring of 2013, The Wake will launch a few months after Murphy’s creator owned, and highly regarded, Vertigo miniseries Punk Rock Jesus is finished.
