Thursday at New York Comic Con was Berger Books day, the main focus of which was a great panel, hosted by my old friend, and legendary editor, Karen Berger and featuring (among others) Ann Nocenti, Dean Haspiel, Christopher Cantwell and Corin Howell. And speaking of Corin...
The reason we were on the panel was to announce our new, four issue mini-series The Girl in the Bay. Here's a description from the Berger Books press release:
In 1969, seventeen-year-old Kathy Sartori was brutally attacked, her body hurled into Brooklyn's Sheepshead Bay. Miraculously, she survives, fights her way back to the surface, only to discover that 50 years have passed, and an eerie doppelganger has lived out an entire life in her place. Kathy soon confronts not just this strange double, but the madman who "murdered" her five decades earlier. Will he, and the dark entity that lives inside him, hold the key to Kathy's missing years? Or will Kathy become a ghost of herself and be forced to live out what remains of her life on the edge of the world that she desperately wants to be a part of?
Karen and I have been friends for many years (how many? She was seventeen and I was twenty-one when we met). We've worked together on multiple DC and Vertigo projects and it's a true joy to be collaborating with her again. And having an artist as talented as Corin Howell (that's her in the picture above) along for the ride is the icing on the cake.
The Girl in the Bay will be out in February. Hope you all come along for the ride, too.
