Vertigo Book Club: A Preacher Fan Comes Home

I had never read a PREACHER comic when AMC’s Preacher TV series premiered. I had heard about it from friends, and I once had a roommate with an extensive comic book collection who maintained that Preacher was her favorite comic of all time. I placed it in my mental to-read list, but that’s as far as I got. I had no idea what it was about, but when I heard a description for the AMC show, I did a figurative double-take.

Vertigo Book Club: Finally Getting to Fables

When I started here at DC (back in 2012, for anyone keeping score), we had just relaunched the Vertigo website and were building out a section for FABLES. The series was still ongoing at that time and had become one of Vertigo’s flagship books. Only SANDMAN had as much name recognition and only HELLBLAZER had more longevity. As the content editor for Vertigo, I was responsible for creating material for this new section of the site.

The problem was, I’d never read it.

San Diego Comic-Con 2017: The Complete List of DC Panels

Over the next four days, there will be hundreds of panels taking place at San Diego Comic-Con. If you’re interested, you can find a complete listing on their website. But if you’re here, there’s a pretty good chance you’re a DC fan and wondering which of those panels are being presented by DC and our friends at Warner Bros.

Carving The American Way

Anyone who’s read the news over the past year knows that our country is pretty deeply divided right now. That’s a troubling situation regardless of what side you happen to fall on, but reading John Ridley, Georges Jeanty and Karl Story’s THE AMERICAN WAY, I was reminded that this isn’t the first time our nation has seen this. Of course, whether that makes it less or more worrying probably depends a lot on what you choose to focus on.

iZombie Cooks Up Some Brain Food

If you’re a fan of iZombie, The CW’s just-returned adaptation of the classic Vertigo comic, then you know the key role that food plays on the show. iZombie’s take on the walking dead is far from the lumbering, decomposing, eating-straight-out-of-the-skull zombie that we’ve seen in most movies and shows. These zombies are intelligent, fully sentient individuals indistinguishable from the rest of us…provided they get their brains and a good spray tan.

Ten Moments that Mattered in 2016

To make your mark on the future, it helps to take stock of where you’ve been. 2017 promises to be an exciting year for DC and its fans, but before we celebrate the new year, we thought we’d look back on 2016 and consider some of the places we’ve been. DC made some bold choices in the worlds of comics, film and TV, and many of them set our course for the months and years ahead. The past year was full of memorable moments, but some of these moments held real significance. Some of them really mattered. So as we do every year at this time, we thought we’d discuss a few of them.

MINISERIES SAVAGE THINGS TO JOIN THE VERTIGO SLATE IN MARCH

This March, Vertigo will unleash SAVAGE THINGS, an action-packed espionage-horror miniseries from writer Justin Jordan (The Legacy of Luther Strode) and artist Ibrahim Moustafa (High Crimes). 

Twenty-five years ago, a secret government organization kidnapped children and trained them to be agents of chaos, designed to foment unrest and execute enemies of the state around the world. When these cold and unfeeling creations proved too difficult to control, the powers that be exterminated their kill squad with extreme prejudice. Too bad it didn’t work.
