DC Comics ‘Sunsets’ Vertigo Imprint After 26 Years

After months of rumors, DC Comics made the news official today that Vertigo, the long-standing edgy imprint that gave birth to some of the best and most literate comic books of the last 26 years would be no more, effective as of January of 2020.

Publisher Dan Didio stated that “We’re returning to a singular presentation of the DC brand that was present throughout most of our history until 1993 when we launched Vertigo to provide an outlet for edgier material.  That kind of material is now mainstream across all genres, so we thought it was the right time to bring greater clarity to the DC brand and reinforce our commitment to storytelling for all of our fans in every age group. This new system will replace the age ratings we currently use on our material.” read more
