Demo: Volume II #1- Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan


None February 5th, 2010

After a six-year absence, Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan's "Demo" returns to the comics world, now under the auspices of Vertigo and a "Volume II" qualifier.

Having never read the title before, I wasn't sure what to expect from this first issue. Immediately, I liked what I saw, with the art in black and white "” it's like that from a creative standpoint, not a budgetary one. With the series being an anthology of standalone tales, this one focuses on a disillusioned woman who feels compelled to quit her job, dump her boyfriend, and buy a one-way ticket to London, based solely upon a recurring vision she has of a woman falling at St. Paul's Cathedral.

In Wood's hands, it's one of those stories whose tail snakes around to swallow its head, and thus, mess with your mind a little. Its climax reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo," with Cloonan's art providing the necessary depth of field. This one bodes well for the series' future. "”Rod Lott
