One year on from the launch of the British Comic Award-nominated black comedy Beast Wagon from writer Owen Michael Johnson (Raygun Roads, Reel Love), illustrator John Pearson, and letterer Colin Bell (Curb Stomp, The Fiction, And Then Emily Was Gone), the second chapter will debut at this year's Thought Bubble festival in Leeds, continuing the story's spiral into anthropomorphic madness.
We at ComicsAlliance are suckers for a good mystery, and over the past six issues Peter Milligan and Leandro Fernandez's The Names has proven to be exactly our cup of tea – this high-suspense psychological financial thriller follows Katya Walker, a woman seeking information about her husband’s sudden death, who comes into conflict with a world-dominating techno-financial cabal called The Names, and finds herself in an uneasy partnership with her stepson Phillip, fighting for her life while searching for answers.
It's a story full of brutal action, advanced technology, hairpin plot twists, and carefully layered concepts, populated by psychopathic murderers, mind-controlling financiers, corrupt cops, and mysterious digital beings known only as "The Dark Loops" – and, courtesy of DC/Vertigo, we're excited to bring you this exclusive first look at pages from issue #6, which hits comic shops next week!
