300-pages. That is how big DC Comics is going for its imprint Vertigo’s 25th year in comics. The publisher recently announced its plans to release a deluxe hardcover book in August titled Vertigo: A Celebration of 25 Years. Since 1993, the imprint has been the place many comic book creators have gone to tell their more mature and darker creator-owned stories.
Series like Garth Ennis‘ Preacher, Jason Aaron‘s Scalped, and Brian K. Vaughan‘s Y: The Last Man recently made the jump from the page to the TV screen. As the pilot episode of Scalped finished filming in May for WGN America, Preacher was green-lit a third season by AMC last month, and Y: The Last Man is currently under development at FX. Making the release of Vertigo: A Celebration of 25 Years even more meaningful. Also within the hardcover are interviews with various Vertigo talent, as well as never before seen art and stories.
Though only the month of the book’s release has been announced, its price has been revealed at $39.99. Going forward it is going to be interesting to see if DC has anything else planned for Vertigo’s milestone. Maybe news pertaining to the Sandman movie? We shall see.
