I like the cover but personally my five favorite covers Vertigo revealed today were:

@aztek the lost: I noticed Sweet Tooth cover 14 on Jeff Lemire's Twitter.  I didn't realized all the covers were up :D
 
Si Spencer, writing a mini... maybe the dude will succeed.  I like Vinyl, but it was only 12 issue.  Maybe the Vinyl crew cross over to City of Demons.

@Silkcuts:  he also wrote Books of Magick: Life During Wartime, I thought that was good except that it was cut short...he has potential, either way I love Sean Murphy's cover...also they seemed to have not put some covers on their blog that they did on the website such as American Vampire, Hellblazer and Fables...some good covers there too, when Vertigo puts up its new releases every month is one of my favorite times, great covers all around

@Silkcuts: also, there's going to be a second annual from House of Mystery, both our wishes came true!
 
EDIT: and according to the solicit it looks like Mike Carey will be writing a Lucifer story? o_O I'm guessing it won't be Lucifer himself but either way I'm intrigued, I liked how that comic ended but the idea of Mike Carey doing a Lucifer story is also awesome

The comic Gods are smiling on us friend.  More John Constantine this year then any other year (Dark Entries, Pandemonium, the reg series, now City of Demons).  the annual will be an annual :D  Lucifer + Carey = must read.

the comic deities they are fickle...first they cancel old favorites then they introduce new favorites, why must they toy with us mere mortals so? 
 
but adding to your list of awesome things...we finally have a release date set for Fables #100 (November 24th) and it's 100 pages so I'm friggin' ecstatic AND the solicit to Hellblazer #272 says it's part 2 to Bloody Carnations (which means the current arc ends with 270) and it still has Shade in it so it sounds like he'll be a supporting character instead of just a one-off arc!

Darn Fickle deities!
 
nice So fables joins the 100 Bullets club in late Nov.  100 pages?  Snaps that is like its own OGN.
 
More SHADE!  I never finished the Shade series like we talked about, but I like the new Shade.  I know you are a big Shade Fan and by your reactions to PM's run you like him too?

@Silkcuts: Yeah, and since it will continue past 100 (we assume) it will officially claim the title of longest series under the Vertigo imprint throughout its run (since both Swamp Thing and Hellblazer had 128 and 62 issues before Vertigo, respectively)...I wish every series could enjoy this success but Fables definitely deserves it
 
and of course I'm a huge Shade fanatic and one thing I found very disheartening was Milligan (who is a mighty fine writer) didn't get to finish it naturally so this is a great way for him to get back to the character which I can very much appreciate. but yeah, even without Shade Milligan's run on the series is great...I mean I loved the last issue and Shade only made a small appearance himself, it was the addition of all the John stuff (and Lenny!) that made it perfect
 
and I hope trades will make the series more accessible to everyone, I map it out in my mind almost every week how they should collect it as a way to keep my excitement, I say it should be done in ten trades but we'll see...I mean they only release one SMT trade a year so if they do that with Shade we'll have to wait another seven years :(
 
hopefully this will at least be one of the bonus features in the trade with #50

I think Shade will move faster then SMT.  But 10 trades make sense, its the same length as Sandman, which is 10 trades.
 
Hellblazer passed the 100 + issue with Vertigo banner, heck it passed the 200+ with only the Vertigo banner... so you still consider it it not the 100+ club?
 
And thanks for the pick from issue #50. I am hunting that issue down.  Hair!  Man Peter Milligan is great.

My favourite cover is Sweet Tooth, at the top. It's pretty... umm... pretty... xD

I love The Unwritten covers. They are so iconic and fit the story and art so well. The newest one continues that fine tradition. No new hellblazer cover though? Sadness.
