Here’s cover #5 for one of the surprise comic break-outs this year: Wildstorm‘s North 40, a story about a Midwestern American town that holds a secret in its library — a book that brings dreams and nightmares to life. Written by Aaron Williams with art by Fiona Staples (Secret History of the Authority: Hawksmoor), North 40 features great art and lots of Lovecraftian-style tentacle creatures, which should be enough to get you down to the local store to check it out.

Wildstorm revealed details yesterday of a new six-issue mini-series called Victorian Undead by writer Ian Edginton and artist Davide Fabbri (with Simon Coleby providing this stunning variant cover).
According to the Wildstorm blurb, the story revolves around Holmes and Watson trying to figure out who is behind the zombie plague that’s infected 1854 London.
The Victorian zombie bloodfest arrives sometime around November.
As if Kurt Busiek isn’t busy enough, with Astro City going weekly, the acclaimed writer has been talking about his upcoming project, American Gothic, a new supernatural series from WildStorm. Set in (spoilers on, big surprise looming!) America, Busiek describes the book as a “wide-ranging series about magic and myth … dealing with American mythology as a setting, a context for a wide variety of stories.”
The Astro City writer added: “It’s a shadowy ramble into the parts of America that no one gets to see, full of unseen magic all around us, in settings that range from suburbia to the borderlands of reality. A mosaic of stories that link into a very big picture.”
We can expect the series “sometime next year” according to Busiek.
