The Increasingly Blurred Line Between DC and Vertigo

When the new 52 was launched, there was a little eyebrow-raising at the extent to which DC was raiding the Vertigo creator roster. The Trinity of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman were all staffed by writers of a Vertigo pedigree with Grant Morrison, Scott Snyder and Brian Azzarello. I’ll grant you Morrison does a little more superhero work (pun intended), but it was noticeable and a lot of people thought that Animal Man and Swamp Thing were really Vertigo books that just happened to play in the superhero world.
