Jeff Lemire may have left monthly DC Comics behind, but he’s not gone from the publisher – he has a pair of prestige Black Label books coming shortly, one of them being The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage. The classic noir antihero’s series is brought to life with the distinct art of Denys Cowan, who drew the classic Question series written by Denny O’Neil, and the Eisner-winning creator Bill Sienkiewicz.
The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage will be released bi-monthly from DC starting on November 20st, 2019.
Below, you’ll find the official DC solicitations text for The Question: The Death of Vic Sage #1 along with the first eight pages of unlettered art.
“The series will go through multiple time periods and explore aspects of Vic Sage’s past and present that have never been explored before. Combined with Bill Sienkiewicz’s inks and Chris Sotomayor’s deft color touch, this may be the best version of the Question yet.” –Denys Cowan
Vic Sage knows right from wrong. He knows black from white. But what happens when he is drawn into a conspiracy that reaches from the heights of Hub City power to the depths of its underground tunnels? What happens when things stop being black-and-white and start getting a little gray? And what happens when, in a secret chamber deep beneath the city, Vic Sage meets his own end…and his new beginning? Legendary artists Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz and letterer Willie Schubert return to The Question, alongside Eisner-winning writer Jeff Lemire and colorist Chris Sotomayor, to resurrect Vic Sage, only to destroy him all over again…and again…and again….
