LETTER COLUMNS RETURN TO VERTIGO COMIC BOOKS
The New Year is here in the dark halls of VERTIGO and we'd like to
welcome you to a cool, new feature in all our monthly books - the return
of LETTERS COLUMNS!
Back in the day, letters pages were really the only way for fans,
editors and creators to have a dialogue. Obviously the interwebs have
changed all that, but in a world that's increasingly Hi-tech, we thought
it would be great to bring back something a little more Low-fi.
But we need YOUR help! We need you to start sending us emails or...wait
for it...REAL letters ASAP. Tell us what you love, what you hate, what
you're reading and why (or why not?) Each title will have its own column
and, by and large, the editors will be the people responding to you.
Occasionally we might be hearing directly from the creators (they're
only a phone call /text/email away) but really this is your chance to
tell us directly what you think of the job we're doing.
But while we're waiting for your insightful missives, this seemed like a
perfect place to (re-) introduce ourselves so you know who's who. So,
without further ado, the 2011 Vertigo starting line-up...
KAREN BERGER - The Captain. What else is there to say? She's been here
since before the beginning. She's editing THE UNWRITTEN and is the kind
and benevolent overseer of us all.
SHELLY BOND - The Fabulous One. Edits FABLES, HELLBLAZER, iZOMBIE and
HOUSE OF MYSTERY.
WILL DENNIS. The Snarky Veteran. Edits DMZ, SCALPED, and SPACEMAN.
MARK DOYLE - The Dauphin. Edits AMERICAN VAMPIRE, NORTHLANDERS and SWEET
TOOTH. Assists on SCALPED & DMZ.
SARAH LITT - International Woman of Mystery. She assists Karen and has a
lot of irons in the fire.
GREG LOCKARD & JOE HUGHES- The Rookies. The latest additions to the V-
team so go easy on them. Greg will be working with Shelly and Joe will
be covering all the other bases.
Now we've all got tons of other incredible projects we handle - original
graphic novels, miniseries, specials - and we will be adding NEW
monthlies as the year progresses. We've just listed the titles that will
have letters columns so you know to whom you should address your
Below is some of essential information you'll need to help get your
letters to us and see print. We can't wait to hear from you (seriously!)
and since we haven't said it yet...THANK YOU for reading and supporting
our books! Vertigo is proud to be the home where the best writers and
artists push comics storytelling beyond its limits. We do it for you and
couldn't do it without you.
--The Vertigo Seven
