Behind the Scenes on Vertigo’s Red Thorn

Mythic Proportions

It only launched in November but David Baillie and Meghan Hetrick’s Red Thorn series from Vertigo is already generating quite a buzz.

Artist Hetrick put up a selection of her art from the book on a new Facebook page, including the original character sketches so we thought everyone would enjoy seeing a few of them here…

This is how Vertigo themselves describe Red Thorn

On the rain-soaked streets of Glasgow, a girl whose drawings somehow come to life has just stumbled across her one true love. And thousands of miles below those streets, an ancient demi-god plots his escape from the prison where he’s been held for nearly two thousand years. Evil forces are at play and no one is safe as the legends of Scottish mythology collide with the modern world. Fans of Fables and The Sandman won’t want to miss this riveting dark fantasy epic!

Hetrick will continue to update the Facebook page so why not check it out yourselves?
