Brubaker's Deadenders, Collected This Week!

I somehow completely missed this, but Ed Brubaker's Deadenders is being collected in trade paperback and will be reaching stores this week.  Brubaker collaborated primarily with penciller and co-creator Warren Pleece on this "mod" sci-fi series, and the two shared the copyright.  The series was published by DC's Vertigo imprint in 2000 and 2001 -- after Brubaker's work on Lowlife, Dark Horse Presents, and Scene of the Crime, but debuting prior to his first mainstream work on Batman.

On Twitter, Brubaker writes that he had forgotten that, like the recent arc in Criminal, the series includes a nod or two to Archie Comics, and he writes that this may be readers' "only chance" to read the complete series.

As best as I can tell, the series did present a complete story -- I've had trouble finding all the back issues -- but only the first four issues were previously collected. Nearly 400 pages long, the softcover collects all 16 issues and an additional short story from Vertigo's Winter's Edge holiday special, and the collection retails for just under $30.
