    I've been really enjoying the book and also picked up all 3 issues last week, Sean Murphy's doing a great job with the art by making it gritty and yet beautiful at the same time.

    I couldn't help but notice though that there are many similarities to the Animal Planet fake documentary they did called "Mermaids, The Body Found".

    Just reread this today, such a great issue. The pacing has been so furious to this point, I feel like issue 4 or 5 has to shift to one of the other time periods.

    Doooooood, The Wake is so bomb, I love the jumping around in time, I love the full scope of the world it covers but more than anything else......Sean Murphy's art is some of the best Comics has Ever witnessed. The out of the box thinking of Murphy makes ME think he must be related to Kirby somehow.

    TomStewDevine - I say yes to Comics.

    As I had suspected, Snyder bases most of his stuff off of historical information. He'll hear about something, save it away in his memory for later and then pull it out and meld the truth with fiction. Really intelligently done as well.

    I'm assuming that they took last month off and Wake #4 will be out at the end of this month?
    Buy Green Arrow!!!!!

    I caught the PRJ reference from the first issue onwards, but where was the Joe the Barbarian poster?

    Next thing you know, there'll be an American Vampire easter egg (Murphy did one of the mini-series)!
