An unspeakable horror bubbles up from the depths of the ocean. Sean Murphy illustrated the covers for the new series, Wake. From Issue #1 through 5, Murphy illustrates what’s to come for the series on the covers. Here’s what Murphy had to say about Wake:
“Just as scary as American Vampire, but with a lot less oxygen. It’s really good that this is an ocean-centric book, because Scott talks about primal fear — we almost have to be underwater, because that’s where our basest fear comes from. I mean, think about it. Would you rather fight a bear on land or a shark in the water? People would rather have the bear, because you’re standing.But water, it’s like, ‘Get me out of there!’ It’s one of the scariest things people can imagine.”
Leave it up to Scott Snyder (writer of Batman, American Vampire) to manipulate and exploit common fears in his stories. You really have to appreciate and love that man’s work as a writer. He is surely a force of nature!
