DC Vertigo's Border Town #1 Is Going Back To Press
Sep 12, 2018
DC Entertainment is proud to announce that the recently released BORDER TOWN #1 from DC Vertigo is headed into a second printing.
The first issue debuted to incredible fan response and critical acclaim:
“Border Town may be the most sharply satirical work that Vertigo Comics has published since Preacher.”—SCREENRANT
“Border Town excels by rooting itself in politics and identity, giving teens their own voice.”–AV CLUB
“Edgy, timely, and dark, Border Town is exactly what you think it is, but also a complete surprise. It hits all the right notes, from Eric M. Esquivel’s razor-sharp script to Ramon Villalobos’ Frank Quietly-inspired artwork. It’s grisly and mean, with a heavy political commentary all wrapped up in a mythological package.”—NERDIST
“Border Town #1 is the Mexican-American Stranger Things”—POLYGON
BORDER TOWN from writer Eric M. Esquivel and artists Ramon Villalobos and Tamra Bonvillain is an ongoing series based in the fictional town of Devil’s Fork, Arizona, as a crack in the border between our world and Mictlan unleashes monsters from Mexican folklore. As the residents of the small border town are plagued by shared nightmares, otherworldly radio transmission, and mysterious goat mutilations, racial tensions will become supernaturally charged. It’s now up to the new kid in town, Frank (Francisco) Dominguez, and a motley crew of high school misfits to discover what’s really going on.
BORDER TOWN is the first of a new line of creator-owned series from the recently rebranded DC Vertigo imprint, led by Executive Editor Mark Doyle and dedicated to creating modern, socially relevant, high-concept stories appealing to readers of all genres.
