PM: What was the first Vertigo book you read?
AR: HELLBLAZER was a game-changer for me. Also, John Constantine did the impossible: make magicians cool. Hell, he even made cancer cool once. Top that, superheroes!
PM: What was the first Vertigo book you edited?
AR: FABLES. Finding out I'd be working on Fables was like Vince Papale finding out he made the roster of the Eagles - like a dream come true. The first issue I edited was Fables #41. Boy, was I pumped. This was the arc where you finally discovered who the Adversary was.
