[C]yan. [M]agenta. [Y]ellow. Blac[K].
From these basic building blocks, the entire spectrum of comic book coloring is formed. Now the medium is returning the favor.
Building on the innovative tradition that has made it one of comics’ most cutting-edge imprints, Vertigo is proud to present CMYK — a bold new anthology of original stories from dozens of the art form’s greatest creators. The short graphic fiction collected here all originates with the four process colors of comics printing, but where they go from there is as unbounded as imagination itself.
In these pages, the glacial glow of cyan bathes alien worlds and wintry city streets; the vivid splash of magenta highlights the hair of outcasts and the evil of demons; the bright light of yellow shines on old worlds ending and new lives beginning; and the enveloping void of black offers both despair and liberation.
The stunning stories and breathtaking visions of CMYK will forever color your perception of what comics can do!
Featuring work by Gene Luen Yang, Jeff Lemire, Gerard Way, Amy Chu, Jock, Fabio Moon, Francesco Francavilla, Bill Sienkiewicz and many more!
