Ann Nocenti comic
Kill Time, Till Time Kills You! Ruby Falls is a sleepy town. But sleep brings nightmares, and Lana is about to wake up in the middle of her hometown's biggest secret: the ''disappearance'' of infamously progressive Betty Gallagher during the mobster-ruled heyday of the old mining town. When details of the cold-case murder start to come out through her grandmother Clara's foggy, dementia-jumbled memories, Lana becomes obsessed with cracking the case, even if it splinters the peaceful town—and endangers everything she loves. From Ann Nocenti (The Seeds, Daredevil) and rising talent Flavia Biondi (Italian artist of La Generazione making her American comics debut) comes Ruby Falls: a neo-noir tale of love, memory, and murder mysteriously woven through three generations of women, and hinging on their individual, intertwined fights for freedom.

All-new tales! A free-form band composed of some of the best talent in the medium got together late one night in Vertigo's back room and cooked up the anthology VERTIGO JAM, a great place to experience a riff of Vertigo's ongoing monthly books. The first cut is an 8-page SANDMAN number by Neil Gaiman and Kevin Nowlan that explores some of the nooks and crannies of Dream's kingdom. Other tracks include a HELLBLAZER tale by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon in which Constantine has an encounter with an old flame; a SHADE, THE CHANGING MAN piece in which our hero explores the religious morals and the carcass of a baneful priest, as recorded by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred; a DOOM PATROL tune by Rachel Pollack and Eric Shanower in which the team must contend with a pair of promiscuous spirits who have escaped from their headquarters; an ANIMAL MAN cut by Jamie Delano, Scot Eaton and Mark Pennington in which Buddy Baker and a straight-shooting fowl talk turkey; a haunting SWAMP THING melody about a ghost lost in the plant realm of the Green, composed by Nancy A. Collins, Phil Hester and Kim DeMulder; and the bizarre experimental sounds of KID ETERNITY by Ann Nocenti and Sean Phillips.

Ever wonder who's calling the shots? Ever wonder if those in control are reviewing all the resumes? If not, consider the case of Kid Eternity. Everyone knows someone like the Kid-the dude who seems just too cool to live. In his case, though, it's true. Kid Eternity is dead, though he tries not to let that cramp his style. In a lot of ways, he's a pretty typical teenager-more interested in the world in his head than in the job at hand, which is to help humanity raise its consciousness and climb the next rung of evolution's ladder. Okay, so the Kid can call on anyone in all history to aid him in his quest, but there we go assuming the Kid's going to notice it when he needs help. The Kid has this small denial problem. When your whole (after)life is just one damned thing after another, you tend to be pretty jaded, and things have to get awfully weird before the Kid gets moving.
