SDCC 2015: Vertigo Announces Twelve New Series
At Comic-Con DC’s Vertigo seemed to have the surprise announcement of Thursday with the news that it would launch twelve new series this fall. A new number one will debut every week, starting with October 7. Many have speculated that the power of DC’s imprint that championed more mature-themed, creator-owned work might get phased out after mainstream DC took back characters like Swamp Thing and Constantine that had previously been anchors of the Vertigo line. It looks like rumors of Vertigo’s demise had been greatly exaggerated.
The schedule for the new titles is as follows:
THE TWILIGHT CHILDREN #1 (Gilbert Hernandez, Darwyn Cooke)
SURVIVORS’ CLUB #1 (Lauren Beukes, Dale Halvorsen, Ryan Kelly)
CLEAN ROOM #1 (Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt)
ART OPS #1 (Shaun Simon, Michael Allred)
UNFOLLOW #1 (Rob Williams, Mike Dowling)
SLASH & BURN #1 (Si Spencer, Max Dunbar, Ande Parks)
RED THORN #1 (David Baillie, Meghan Hetrick)
JACKED #1 (Eric Kripke, John Higgins)
SHERIFF OF BAGHDAD #1 (Tom King, Mitch Gerads)
NEW ROMANCER #1 (Peter Milligan, Brett Parson)
LUCIFER #1 (Holly Black, Lee Garbett)
LAST GANG IN TOWN #1 (Simon Oliver, Rufus Dayglo)
Vertigo will also continue to publish ASTRO CITY, AMERICAN VAMPIRES, and SUICIDERS.
