Vertigo is NOT DEAD. Although a lot of people thought DC’s edgy imprint would go the way of the dodo in a more cost conscious environment, this is one of several interesting project I’ve been hearing about coming up. I’m told there will be even more before San Diego. This mini series hit in November and has covers by Doyle and Cloonan. Storywise, it’s American Hustle by way of Mob Wives, with 70s style taking over.
NYC. THE SEVENTIES. DISCO. PUNK. BLACKOUTS. SUMMER OF SAM. YANKEES FEVER. TIMES SQUARE.
