Welcome my comic collecting cohorts to another instalment of Comic Cover Of The Week, and our spotlight of excellence this week falls upon Vertigo’s Survivor Club #1, and another epic illustration by Bill Sienkiewicz. Survivors Club is a brand new series that is co-written by acclaimed South African horror author Lauren Beukes (Shining Girls) and award winning illustrator Dale Halvorsen.
Six survivors are brought together by horrors they each experienced in 1987 when an outbreak of occult events occurred across the planet, with fatal results. One of them was possessed by a poltergeist, another was trapped in a haunted house and a third owned a killer doll. Now there are indications that another rash of paranormal events may be happening all over again. So is it possible that these six aren’t survivors, but were actually chosen because of their fates?
Survivors Club #1 is available at your local comic book emporium right now. Written by: Lauren Beukes and Dale Halvorsen. Cover art by: Bill Sienkiewicz. Interior art by: Ryan Kelly.
