Peter Milligan & Davide Gianfelice - Greek Street: Blood Calls For Blood

- 5 July 2010
Peter Milligan is one of the comic world’s most interesting writers. From back on his days at 2000AD (where he gave us the wonderful ‘Bad Company’) through oddities such as Skin to his natural home at Vertigo, where his Shade the Changing Man (among many others) fitted in naturally alongside Swamp Thing and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, he’s made a massive impact. It’s when he’s given the free rein on an imprint like Vertigo that Milligan really comes into his own and this new project is a perfect example of his unique and leftfield take on storytelling.
Retelling the Greek Myths but repositioning them in modern London, starting with a warped take on Oedipus. You can tell the layers are building as he slowly peels back the skin to reveal more and more weirdness. These opening six issues are just setting the scene but this could be the start of something special.
