I'm seriously excited for this "Vertigo" corner of the DCU. Can't wait to get my hands on these books. A well done, highly insightful interview.
Vertigo is my favorite comic publisher of all time and is what ushered me back into reading comics. Not only that it matured me into the reader I am today. I've been meaning to delve back into the classic works of the company for a while now. The revelation of the "dark" line of new DCU comics coming in September really made me want to take a look at the real version of these characters before I take on their DCU incarnations. Sandman's my favorite comic of all time and Gaiman's my favorite writer (sorry Silkcuts). Alan Moore's my close second, in fact he's 1-B and I own all his essentials aside from his Swamp Thing which I will own before I die! I have a short list of things I want to read but am open to any suggestions from my fellow viners. What are your favorite Vertigo works? What would recommend?
Things I've Read/Reading: Sandman, Preacher, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Y: The Last Man, Dysart's Unknown Soldier, Unwritten, American Vampire
Things I want to read more into: Transmetropolitan, Fables, Ex Machina, Hellblazer...definitely Hell Blazer.
Things I KNOW I should've read already but haven't yet: Moore's Swamp Thing, Milligan's Shade, Morrison's Animal Man/Doom Patrol, Carey's Lucifer, Scalped, Madame Xanadu, Hell Blazer...yes I have Constantine on the brain lately.
Things I'd like some feedback on: The Dreaming, Sandman Mystery Theater
Schyeah...I'm NOT calling it that other name...
Anyways, really looking forward to this come September.
Joe Casey & Nathan fox of Dark Reign: Zodiac fame will be taking over from co-creator Robert Kirkman and signature artists Greg Capullo who will be leaving to team up with Scott Snyder on Batman #1. Looks like September is the official month of change for the industry. I'm looking forward to Casey's Vengeance mini for marvel with Nick Dragotta and as a reader of Haunt I look forward to see what direction he takes the title in. Casey discusses his plans here.
Has you all asking the wrong question we all know "why" and "how" marvel could do this to us. My friends, the true question is how the hell Greg Land got this job?! How, how, how does he keep getting work period?! How much coke was the editor snorting when he said "You know who should do this event issue...Rob f'n Liefeld, baby!!!! Oh he doesn't work for us anymore? Hell, okay, how about...GREG LAND!!!! Yeah, that guys awesome. I mean did you take a look at how he draws Emma's rack?! Now THAT'S what the fans want. That's the kind of Iconography that I want to leave an indelible mark on the minds of our fans!" Seriously though how the unholy frak does one look at thisAnd say that THIS is the man worthy of sending off one of our longest running, most beloved flagship titles (this time...for we all know it will happen again).
Well the DCU wide reboot has ended an era...let us morn, brothers and sisters. But also, let us look forward the final issues on the horizon. I take joy in knowing that this title went out on top in world champion condition. I, for one, am looking forward to reading the trades of all the issues of this wonderful series that I missed out on before I started reading the book. Simone speaks on it here
Looks like T'Challa will continue his adventures under David Liss' pen in Black Panther: World's Most Dangerous Man 523.1 in September. Jefte Palo will be taking over art duties on the issue and I like what he brought to the table on a fill in issue a few back and he'll be doing tomorrow's issue as well so check him out. He may be taking over for Francesco Francavilla who will be working with Scott Snyder on the upcoming Swamp Thing Title. I've enjoyed T'Challa's adventure's in Hell's Kitchen but would definitely like to see him back in Wakanda and traveling the world. I'm looking forward to see where Liss takes the Panther next.
