L’éditeur DC Comics vient de dévoiler ses sollicitations pour le mois de février prochain, et pour changer les habitudes on va continuer avec la petite partie consacrée aux titres de l’imprint Vertigo ! Comme d’habitude, il n’y a jamais grand chose à noter de ce côté là. Le titre Frostbite trouvera sa conclusion alors que The Lost Boys sera bientôt achevé également – et il faut s’attendre à ce que l’éditeur annonce de prochaines mini-séries dans les temps à venir.
Autrement du côté de la librairie avec quelques re-sollicitations, l’imprint continue de publier ses succès passés, avec une belle édition pour le Mr Punch de Neil Gaiman et Dave McKean et une nouvelle édition Deluxe pour Jack of Fables (qui sait, ces choix permettront peut-être d’avoir une VF l’an prochain chez Urban Comics ?). Je vous laisse découvrir tout ça ci-dessous.
