I asked editor Will Dennis to take a trip down memory lane with me. Below is our conversation. You may recall I asked Mark Doyle these very same questions here.
PM: What was the first Vertigo book you read?
WD: well I would say HELLBLAZER #1 but that wasn’t technically Vertigo. of course then I’d have to count Swamp Thing...hmmm. I do distinctly recall buying 100 BULLETS #1 at a comic shop on 23rd St. Less than two years later I was editing the book. what are the chances?
PM: What was the first Vertigo book you edited?
WD:my first editorial credit was THE DREAMING 45. it had a crocodile-looking creature with a naked woman’s body on the cover and lots of Fairies inside. Exactly the kind of book I have tried to do ever since. First book I was full editor credit was 100 BULLETS 20...Shepherd talking to Benito in Washington Sq Park — NYC in the snow. perfect.
PM: Thanks Will!
