Suiciders #1 Preview

Written and Illustrated by: Lee Bermejo
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: February 4, 2014

In the post-apocalyptic city of New Angeles, killing isn’t just a crime – it’s entertainment.
When the “big one” finally hit the West Coast, Los Angeles was left in ruins. And when the U.S. government decided to cut the city loose, things went from bad to worse. To survive, L.A. did what it does best: It turned survival into entertainment.
Now, thirty years later, the city of New Angeles is thriving once more thanks to the blood sport known as SUICIDERS – a TV series that combines the spectacle of hand-to-hand combat with elaborate, high-tech obstacles that test each competitor’s ability to survive. But these competitors have an edge: They’ve been freakishly enhanced by drugs and technology. The results are both marvelous and monstrous, as the man called The Saint begins to rise above his fellow Suiciders.
SUICIDERS is a dark, post-apocalyptic epic that tells the story of a strange, brutal world, written and illustrated by Lee Bermejo, the #1 New York Times best-selling writer/artist behind JOKER, BATMAN: NOEL, LUTHOR and BEFORE WATCHMEN: RORSCHACH.

Okay, We usually don't feature previews for Vertigo titles, but this one looks too good to ignore.  Recently, it was announced that Vertigo was going to go through a "rebranding" and while I don't know what that really means (I am a bit dim), if it involves getting books like this, I'm all in.  We still have a while until The Suiciders hits the shelves, but here is the preview to show you why you should start counting the days until Fedbruary 4th.
