Cults Takes A Bashing With Gail Simone And Tim Seeley's First Comics For Vertigo – Clean Room And Effigy


At the New York Comic Con Vertigo panel today, two new books were announced from the mature readers imprint of DC Comics, debut books for most of the creators involved.

Gail Simone and Jonathan Davis-Hunt on Clean Room, and Tim Seeley and Marley Zarcone on Effigy.

The former is the story of a church leader with technological secrets that may explain her miracles, a reporter murdered and her girlfriend being inspired to pick up the case.

While the latter has a ex-child star who discovers a celebrity effigy worshipping cult – who kill those who don't practice their beliefs, and will travel around the world to all manner of burial sites, including Stonehenge.

Basically, religious cults don't seem too popular at Vertigo these days…
