Vertigo Comics discussion

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Vertigo Comics is an imprint of DC Comics created in 1993 to publish stories with more graphic or adult content that could not fit within the restrictions of the Comics Code Authority, thus allowing more creative freedom than DC's main imprint. These comics were free to contain explicit violence, substance and drug abuse, sexuality, nudity, profanity, and other controversial subjects, similar to the content of R-rated films.

What Vertigo title(s) do you love or like? Tell us why. What writers and artists do their best work in Vertigo?

My favorites are:

  • 100 Bullets
  • American Vampire
  • Fables
  • Hellblazer
  • The Invisbles
  • Lucifer
  • Preacher
  • The Sandman
  • Scalped
  • Transmetropolitan
  • Y: The Last Man



If I had to pick just one overall title that soars above the rest, I'd ultimately have to pick Sandman. Neil Gaiman is unusually talented and his 75 issue story arc is timelessly astounding and brilliant.

A very close second would be Scalped. JFC, Jason Aaron knows how to write serious crime drama. This kind of writing belongs in the ranks of the Sopranos and Breaking Bad.

Every series you mentioned here is absolute gold, and holds up well even after repeated reads.


My top 5 would probably be:
-Lucifer (Carey's run)
-Sandman
-Scalped
-Y: The Last Man
-Fables

A pilot for Scalped was filmed but several networks passed, I believe.

Scalped is so good and deserves to be on HBO or Showtime, IMO.

Yeah, if they were to do a live action Scalped, it would have to be on HBO or Showtime to do it any justice whatsoever. thumb up

I've only read the first volume of Scalped and enjoyed it.

I canít brag enough about Scalped.

Itís a genuine 10/10, in my opinion.

More people need to read it.

Iíd love to see a Sandman series instead of a movie, but I donít know it justice could be done to the title.

Also, Iím still super sad that we live in a world without Steve Dillon. I was devastated by his untimely death.

Preacher, the comic, is greatness. Ennis and Dillon are a duo that can do no wrong. The tv show is good, but not great. Itís good enough to keep me watching, though. I hope that season four will play out the ďCrusadesĒ story arc.

You're talking about Shade the Changing Man, yeah?

That was an absolute mindf*ck of a series. Literally forged by LSD.

Border Town, a Vertigo title, just got cancelled because the writer is being accused of sexual assault.

And just when the story was getting good.

I just got this Steve Dillon memorial sketchbook yesterday. I'm still bummed that such great talent died so soon and suddenly. Steve will forever be in my Top Artists list. Preacher and Hellblazer are such great works that only Steve could have done justice to.

I've not read Border Town. Is it worth checking out?

It's a solid and crazy story, but it's about to be cancelled. I don't know if issue six will even ship, assuming it's a six issue limited series and not an ongoing.

Does Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing count? Because parts of that were just incredible.
