When the first issue of Ian Edginton and Francesco Trifolgi's Hinterkind hit the stands in 2013, this tale of humans and mythological creatures battling one another in a post-apocalyptic future immediately found a passionate and vocal fan base, and became a modern-day example of the offbeat genre-blending fantasy that has become a trademark of the Vertigo line from day one.
Now, after 18 issues of giants and faeries and dragons and other fantastical insanity, the series is drawing to a close, with leading lady Prosper Monday and her band of companions hurtling headlong into their greatest battle – and we're excited to bring you an exclusive five-page preview of the grand finale!
Launched in October, Ian Edginton and Francesco Trifogli's Hinterkind is a fantasy tale of a post apocalyptic Earth, in which humanity was all but completely wiped out by what is known as "The Blight." Series protagonist Prosper Monday, who has spent her entire life living in a village hidden away in an otherwise abandoned Central Park in Manhattan, is forced to leave the village for the first time to search for her missing grandfather, and in her travels in the wild she'll deal with all manner of challenges, including the beings known as The Hinterkind.
Featuring excellent cover work by Greg Tocchini, Hinterkind is part of Vertigo's latest wave of titles, and the publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with a six page preview of this week's Hinterkind #4, which you can view below.
Vertigo fans may want to sit down. According to The New York Times DC Comics' mature readers imprint has announced six new titles coming this fall, including the finally-titled Sandman prequel announced last summer at San Diego Comic-Con International. On October 30, Gaiman and artist J.H. Williams' The Sandman: Overture #1 will arrive in stores, bringing an end to fans' some 17 year wait for new material.
