Get ready for some strange happenings from under the Arctic Circle in Vertigo's "The Wake," by acclaimed creators Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy. The 10-issue miniseries starts in May, and here's the official synopsis straight from Vertigo:

When Marine Biologist Lee Archer is approached by the Department of Homeland Security for help with a new threat, she declines, but quickly realizes they won't take no for an answer.

I’m betting that the covers for this Kurt Busiek-created series aren’t really doing it any favors: with its Gothic Dracula looking fierce and killing dudes, the covers are selling something completely different from what’s actually between the covers. It’s less Gene Colan and more…I’m not really sure. But it’s pretty smart with its premise and writer Daryl Gregory has a real handle on the world he’s shaping based on Busiek’s concepts.

The basic premise is that corporate heavyweights Barrington Industries are victims of the financial downturn just like everyone else. Evan Barrington is the directionless heir of the family business, drafted by his uncle Conrad into a secret project involving lots of moldy Romanian texts about Vlad Tepes. Conrad’s brilliant idea is evil genius idiot plot 101: to resurrect the vampire prince and use his knowledge of sorcery to save the company from economic ruin. Evan, a milquetoast at best and a moral coward at worst assists his uncle in what at first seems like an insane experiment; when it works Evan’s sure that’s it’s probably also evil. The first 3 issues in the series bounce between historical anecdotes about the real Vlad Tepes, his present day incarceration in a locked chamber under Barrington Industries called “the wine cellar,” and to present-day Romania, where a family of vampire hunters is slowly coming around to the fact that someone in Pittsburgh is messing around with forces you don’t mess around with.
