VERTIGO TITLES

DEADMAN #1

Written by Bruce Jones, art and cover by John Watkiss.

Explore the mysteries of life -- and love -- after death in this original re-imagining of the classic DC character. Combining over-the-top action and brain-tingling speculation, this is Deadman as only Vertigo could deliver in an ongoing series about sex and string theory; parapsychology and political conspiracy; where the "wonder years" and the afterlife are just two dimensions of the same reality.

With his older brother Scott at the controls, Brandon is "deadheading" a free flight with a hangover that won't quit. Without warning, Scott deliberately crashes the plane into a downtown London skyscraper. Brandon is killed in a horrifying wreck, along with everyone on board.

And his day only gets worse from there.

To survive his own demise, Brandon must confront these riddles head-on, until he realizes that the person with the answers may be his late brother's own wife -- a woman he once loved himself. And when he encounters her again, he finds that his love for her is one part of himself that will never die.

Written by Brian K. Vaughan, art and cover by Niko Henrichon.

An original look at life on the streets of Baghdad during the Iraq War inspired by true events. In this provocative graphic novel, Vaughan examines life on the streets of war-torn Iraq.

Lost and confused, hungry but finally free, the four lions roamed the decimated streets of Baghdad in a desperate struggle for their lives. In documenting the plight of the lions, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD raises questions about the true meaning of liberation -- can it be given, or is it earned only through self-determination and sacrifice? And in the end, is it truly better to die free than to live life in captivity?

Based on a true story, Vaughan and Henrichon have created a unique and heartbreaking window into the nature of life during wartime, illuminating this struggle as only the graphic novel can.
