The Names TP
Pete Milligan, Leandro Fernandez
9781401252434
PB
£12.99
The Names is a contemporary thriller that starts off as a revenge story: A deadly heroine ticks off — and kills — each “name” that brings her closer to knowing who killed her husband. It will become much more than that…
The world of The Names is Big Money. Hedge funds, leveraged buyouts, market raids, flash buys. Incredibly high end deals that ruin lives and economies, where secret cabals gamble with people’s lives and jaded billionaires find their kicks the only way they know how. The idea is to take what’s REALLY GOING in the poisonous, deadly world of high speed, high stakes finance but really TURN IT UP, push it to the edge and make it sexy, dramatic, and thoroughly deadly.  It’s about righting all the wrongs by any means necessary.
Collects The Names #1-8.

Even weirder, the murder resembles a scene from an episode of her old TV show, Star Cop, a live-action children’s show about a kid detective. As Chondra starts to investigate, she stumbles upon a bizarre cult that worships celebrities as eternal effigies.
And these cult members aren’t just worshiping — they’re also ritually sacrificing anyone who defies their veneration of the beautiful and famous. Chondra’s probe takes her on a terrifying tour of burial mounds across the world, from Stonehenge to the Nazca Lines of Peru. But what is the link between the cult, Chondra’s hometown, and her own bloodline? Will Chondra become the hero detective she played as a child…or is she in fact the cult’s unwitting messiah?
Written by rising star Tim Seeley (Batman Eternal, Grayson, Revival) and illustrated by Marley Zarcone (Black Circle, Madame Xanadu), Effigy is a twisted murder mystery and conspiracy tale that examines celebrity, godhood, and the price of fame.  Collects Effigy #1-6.
