Karen Berger Confirms DC Characters To Leave Vertigo
Respectfully, we informed you of this event at an earlier yadda yadda yadda...
Karen Berger, Executive Editor of Vertigo at DC Comics, has just confirmed on the Vertigo panel at San Diego Comic Con that all Vertigo characters rooted in the DC Universe are being returned to the editorial mandates of the DCU offices.
This included a Swamp Thing series in production, but that everything was worked out amicably. And she was insistent that Vertigo is at its very best when creating new and interesting comics.
Bleeding Cool recently reported that this was new policy a few months ago and that China Meiville's five-issue-written new Swamp Thing series was a casualty of that. We also reported the cancellation of Madame Xanadu, a character even more recently a DCU property.
Though, with his impending nuptuals, it looks like John Constantine, as ever, will be the exception.
what does this mean for HoM? Are they next? Will John Constantine end soon, with Marriage just so they can bring him back to the DCU?
I pray John Constantine stays at Vertigo... it would be ashamed to throw away all those years like that....
