The fashion world in general can be pretty hellish, but on August 29, that phrase takes on a whole new meaning with "National Comics: Looker" #1 by Ian Edginton and Mike S. Miller. DC Comics has provided CBR News with an exclusive first look inside the one-shot issue detailing the life of supermodel-turned-vampire Emily Briggs:
"What appealed to me about Looker was that central idea. What's happens to someone whose looks are their living when they can no longer go out in daylight? Or show up on film? How do they survive?" Edginton told CBR in an interview earlier this month. "Emily is a tough and as hardnosed as they come. She's supremely pragmatic, having survived and prospered in the fickle, predatory fashion industry right from her early teens. Compared to what's she's had to deal with over the years, becoming a vampire isn't that big a problem. It's just a new thing to endure and overcome."
Readers can check out the final product at the end of the month. Stay tuned to CBR News for more on "National Comics."
