I saw a new Vertigo title and thought 'Hey, cool'. But I'm a little iffy after this first issue.

Picking this up when I leave work in 30 minutes. Jock is a criminally underrated artist.

Aye.

Everyone that didn't buy Losers makes me cry.

Yes. I share your tears. They taste a lot like sad.

Pretty much any new Vertigo #1 is an automatic buy. I don't always stick with them, but their hit to miss ratio is very much in the positive as far as I'm concerned.

I have no idea what this is about, but I picked up the first issue completely on a whim today. I just saw the words "Mike Carey" and "Jock" on the cover and figured it was worth a look.

Was DYING to pick up this book and my LCS didn't even bother ordering it in.

Thank you brain dead culture of South Dakota!

After reading the Crossing Midnight trade I'll buy almost anything he does now.

What's it about?

Written by Mike Carey; Art and Cover by Jock

In the numbing cold of a Minnesota winter, Jessie Kidby and her freshman friends kick off their second semester with a wild party. But in the aftermath of the big blow-out, things start to go horribly wrong for all of them. Jessie is troubled by nasty memories she's been suppressing for years, while her best friend Nick Philo has become an un-person: Nobody outside their tight-knit little clique can remember seeing him before, and his records have been erased from the college's computers. At first, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but it becomes increasingly obvious that one of them is not what he appears to be.

Chock full of ruthless characters with hidden agendas, FAKER takes place during freshman year in college; the ultimate time of reinvention, where, if you're up for it, you can lie, cheat and fake your way through almost anything. FAKER is by the Eisner-nominated team of Mike Carey (LUCIFER, CROSSING MIDNIGHT) and Jock (THE LOSERS).

That sounds very interesting. Is it a mini series or ongoing?
