The Losers and Human Target on Graphic Content[ENGLISH] Vertigo tells us: In case you missed the GRAPHIC CONTENT blog posts from Monday night following the Baltimore Retailer’s Summit, we made a couple of exciting announcements. Check them out: In April 2010 THE LOSERS, the comic book series by British comic book writer Andy Diggle (2000 AD) and artist Jock (Hellblazer: Pandemonium coming February 2010), comes to the big screen!

In celebration of this highly anticipated movie adaptation, Vertigo will collect Volume 1: Ante Up and Volume 2: Double Down (issues #1-12) of the groundbreaking, Eisner-nominated Vertigo series in a single volume to be published in January 2010. This 304-page paperback by Andy Diggle with art by Jock and Shawn Martinbrough and with cover by Jock will retail for $19.99.

On Sunday, January 17th (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), FOX will preview the new TV series HUMAN TARGET– a full-throttle action-drama centered on Christopher Chance (Mark Valley, Fringe), a unique private contractor hired to protect, based on the DC Comics character created by Len Wein and artist Carmine Infantino and reimagined for Vertigo by Peter Milligan (Shade the Changing Man, Skreemer, Greek Street, Hellblazer).

To coincide with its release, Vertigo will collect Milligan’s original 4-issue HUMAN TARGET comic book miniseries with art by Edvin Biukovic along with the follow-up, standalone, 96-page HUMAN TARGET: FINAL CUT OGN with art by Javier Pulido (Robin: Year One) in a 200-page paperback called HUMAN TARGET: Chance Meetings.

HUMAN TARGET was one of the first series my boss gave to me to read when I started working here at Vertigo. If you haven’t already read this outstanding interpretation of HUMAN TARGET, this is your chance.
