Image Comics: Now With 100% More Karen Berger

Berger will edit Surgeon X by Sara Kenney & John Watkiss, James Devlin, and Jared K. Fletcher. We hope she sticks around for more.



Attendees of this year's Image Expo were surprised to see former Vertigo leader and value meal at the cannibal McDonalds, Karen Berger, take the stage at the event. Berger, who, in a superior alternate universe, took over DC instead of Dan Didio and company, will be the editor of Surgeon X by Sara Kenney & John Watkiss, James Devlin, and Jared K. Fletcher. Welcome back to comics, Karen Berger! We've missed you! God, we've missed you.

Here's some press stuff from Image.

SURGEON X by Sara Kenney & John Watkiss, James Devlin, & Jared K. Fletcher, edited by Karen Berger

Writer Sara Kenney and artist John Watkiss come together for an all new series, SURGEON X, and join forces with the award-winning Karen Berger, founding editor of DC's Vertigo imprint.

Set against the backdrop of an antibiotic apocalypse in near future London. Rosa Scott, a brilliant and obsessive surgeon becomes Surgeon X, a vigilante doctor who uses experimental surgery and black market drugs to treat patients. But as Surgeon X, Rosa soon develops a godlike-complex, deciding who will live and who will die. Ultimately, she believes that to survive in this compromised world her own warped moral code is the one she must follow—even if it endangers those closest to her.

"When I first heard this original and compelling concept, I thought it was time to get back into comics again," said Berger. "I love that it explores the consequences of a world where the bedrock of modern medicine has crumbled, where people must adapt to a dangerous new reality, and where the lead character's subversive nature makes us question our own sense of ethics and morality. So excited to be working alongside the fabulously multi-talented creator/writer Sara Kenney and the brilliant, masterful artist John Watkiss. Sara's vision is frighteningly real and beautifully executed." The comic is informed by hundreds of conversations with scientists, physicians, historians, economists, ethicists & philosophers to create this deeply disturbing, yet authentic future world.

SURGEON X was funded by a Society Award from Wellcome Trust, an independent global charitable foundation dedicated to improving health. They support bright minds in science, the humanities and the social sciences, as well as education, public engagement and the application of research to medicine.

SURGEON X will launch in Fall 2016.
