Things Are Getting Pretty Tense In ‘Sheriff Of Babylon’ #10 [Exclusive Preview]

Sheriff of Babylon #10, Vertigo

When Tom King and Mitch Gerads launched Sheriff of Babylon, one of the most striking things about it --- aside from the fact that it's one of the only DC Comics that has to be run by the CIA before publication --- was its use of sound effects. In an interview right here at ComicsAlliance, King mentioned that he lifted the idea from the first issue of Y The Last Man, but still, those three big gunshots that united that first issue's three disparate stories were enough to make a pretty big impression.

So with that in mind, it's nice to see that they're still around as the series heads into its tenth issue. Check out an exclusive preview.

Lunch Gets Very Tense In ‘Sheriff Of Babylon’ #2 [Preview]

Sheriff of Babylon #2, Vertigo

The first issue of Tom King and Mitch Gerads' Sheriff of Babylon was notable for a whole lot of reasons. For one thing, it was the first Vertigo comic that had to be run by the CIA before publication thanks to the influence of King's time working as a consultant during the Iraq War, but for another, it was quite simply an incredible first issue. Three separate stories, each punctuated by gunshots, setting the stage for a murder mystery set during the reconstruction of Iraq.

Now, the second issue is bringing those threads together, as Christopher and Nassir meet to discuss their investigation in what has to be the most tense lunch since... well, probably since we all saw our relatives over the holidays. Check out an exclusive preview!

Perspectives On A Crime: Tom King And Mitch Gerads On ‘The Sheriff Of Babylon’

Sheriff of Babylon, Vertigo/DC

Tom King might have the most impressive résumé in comics. Long before he became one of the breakout stars of superhero comics with books like Grayson and Omega Men, he specialized in counter-terrorism, including working for the CIA in Iraq. Now, he's drawing on those experiences for The Sheriff of Babylon, a new ongoing series from Vertigo with artist and co-creator Mitch Gerads.

To find out more, I spoke to King and Gerads about the origins of the project, their approach to research, and the three characters taking center stage in their crime story.
