OH WORD? Vertigo is putting out a fucking quarterly anthology? Stacked with goddamn talent? Like Jock? Fabio Moon? Others? Bro, you sign me up. In blood and seminal fluids. That’s how serious I am. Drain me and clone me, I simply don’t care.
Vertigo has announced that its newest anthology series “Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK” is set to launch April 30. According to Nerdist, the anthology’s first issue will feature stories from Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV,Joe Keatinge and many more.
“Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK” is a reference to the colors that compromise the four-color printing process: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Each “Vertigo Quarterly” issue will be named after one of the four colors with a matching cover. Check out the four covers for “Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK” below as well as the official solicitation text.
The four colors that are the basis of comic coloring—CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, BLACK—serve as the inspiration for talent to push the boundaries of short storytelling in the VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK anthology series.
Starting with stunningly simple, bold covers, CMYK will defy all conventions of traditional comic book anthologies. The unifying color may suggest a mood, a plot point, a coloring technique—limited only by the imagination of the incredible talent involved. Starting with CYAN this Spring with stories and art by Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Martin Morazzo, Robert Rodi and Javier Fernandez, Amy Chu, Joe Keatinge, Cris Peter, Shaun Simon and Tony Akins and more! Followed by MAGENTA in summer, YELLOW in fall and BLACK in winter, you’ll see color throughout the year as only Vertigo can deliver.
