Most of the discussion over the elimination of Shelly Bond’s position as head of the Vertigo line has centered on the lack of profit and hits for the imprint in recent years. But you can’t say that DC didn’t try. Two years ago Vertigo launched a big marketing campaign for the “Defy” line, and they […]
It’s been quite the (heartbreaking) 24 hours, and we’re still working through it, but after the dismissal of Vertigo Executive Editor Shelly Bond yesterday, many have wondered if this is just a smokescreen to do away with DC’s edgy imprint entirely. While it doesn’t answer all the immediate questions, senior editor Jamie Rich, who is taking over the […]
Whoa, seismic news tonight as longtime Vertigo editor Shelly Bond, currently Vice President & Executive Editor and the storied Vertigo imprint, has been let go, as the imprint restructures.

Neverboy, illustrated by Tyler Jenkins and published by Dark Horse, really wowed me. Simon’s follow-up to that is Art Ops, a […]
It seems the new run of X-Files has been a hit. (It seems wrong to call it a relaunch or a reboot since it’s the same show with the same cast and credits, just after a 14 year absence.)
