    We are getting a lot from Vertigo. Did we say Preacher yet?


Not yet - but he's in now.

What the heck happened to Vertigo? Seems like it ruled the 90s. Now we get the occasional (admittedly well made) mini-series and that's about it.




I thought they had shuttered the brand recently. When the New 52 hit in 2011, didn't they bring all the DC characters back from Vertigo and left Vertigo with creator-owned books only? And they slowed to a trickle. Didn't DC recently announce another mature readers or creator-owned line to replace it? Maybe I'm thinking of something else.

EDIT: The new imprint I was thinking of is Young Animal, which I guess uses established DC properties like Doom Patrol, Cave Carson, Shade and Forager. Vertigo is being restructured but presumably for creator-owned stuff.
