As part of the Vertigo Crime series of Graphic Novels and very much a mature title – it’s no surprise that this dark & twisted tale will make you appreciate just how “normal” your own family are in comparison.

I have seen it heralded as the Ultimate-Comic-Book-Fan-Fear, where a favourite book is cancelled or treasured personnel shifted around to work on other titles. I’ve also seen it heralded as the Ultimate-Comic-Book-Company-Marketing-Tactic and in light of recent high profile cancellations from Marvel (Generation Hope, Daken etc) I think DC fans got off lightly by comparison. This somewhat sweeping statement makes reference to DC’s recent switching around of writers on JLDark, Stormwatch and Frankenstein, which was so unexpected we had to get in touch with Lemire, Milligan and Janin to ascertain exactly had had gone on and what we could expect from the changes.

Responsible for some of the most critically acclaimed and original comics of the 90s, as well as the radical revamping of Ditko’s SHADE, The Changing Man, Peter Milligan is now spearheading the DC Comics DCthenew52 Relaunch at the helm of both Justice League Dark and Red Lanterns. We caught up with Milligan at this year’s Thought Bubble festival in Leeds, affording him a well earned break from signing favourite issues and trades for a steady stream of fans.
