Enigma Gets the Deluxe Treatment from Berger Books

Berger Books has announced the release of a deluxe hardcover edition of Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo‘s radical and acclaimed Vertigo series Enigma. This definitive edition of Enigma, written by legendary and influential writer Peter Milligan, features a lavish new cover by Duncan Fegredo and a treasure trove of never-before-seen development art from one of comics most singular and dramatic artists. Sherilyn Van Valkenburgh provides the lushly painted color.

Enigma is a visceral, thought-provoking post-modern tale of self-discovery and sexual identity told against the backdrop of outrageous superheroes and villains. Michael Smith lives a meaningless life of routine and boredom. But when the weird characters from Enigma – Michael’s favorite childhood comic book hero – seem to come to life, Smith embarks upon an increasingly obsessive crusade to uncover the incredible secret behind their improbable existence. Teaming up with Enigma’s comic creator, Smith encounters an insanity-inducing psychopath, a brain-eating serial killer, a suicide-inciting Truthsayer, and a teleporting one-time model “who really sends you” as his quest uncovers shocking truths about his idol and ultimately Michael himself. 

Enigma will go on sale in fall 2020.

Review: Giant-Size X-Statix #1

Giant-Size X-Statix #1

The X-Statix are back in Giant-Size X-Statix #1! Who are the X-Statix? Well, you don’t need to worry about that a whole lot as the creative team has you covered and catches you up. Writer Peter Milligan does a brilliant job and laying out the land for new readers, reminding older readers, and setting up what’s to come in this oversized issue.

Being unfamiliar with the series and characters myself, I got a good sense of their voice rather quickly. They come off as a less serious X-Men with a pop-indie vibe. The X-Statix are as focused on their popularity as they are doing what’s right. And with that comes a lot of humor as the ream is brought together to face a new threat and confront some of their past.

I’m sure older fans of the X-Statix will enjoy Giant-Size X-Statix #1 on a different level than I did but I still found myself laughing enough to want to come back for more. There’s a certain pop-sense about it all with updated jokes that creates a fun reading experience.

A lot of that fun experience is due to the art of Michael Allred and Laura Allred. The two together have a certain style that’s unique and easily recognizable. A trippy style is mixed with small visual jokes and a whimsical feel that fits Milligan’s writing style for the series. All together it has you wanting to drop acid and enjoy the ride.

The comic was unexpected and not sure it was even needed. But, after reading it, I know I want more and looks like we might get exactly that in 2020.
