5:30-6:30 Vertigo: On the Edge
Over the years the Vertigo imprint has produced smart, shocking and critically acclaimed series such as The Sandman, Preacher, Y: The Last Man, Hellblazer and Fables, to name a few. Now, Vertigo’s latest ongoings are poised to join those legendary ranks.
NORTHLANDERS: METAL is a story about Erik and Ingrid, two young lovers on the run, leaving a path of destruction and dead in their wake.
It’s “Bonnie and Clyde” with Vikings.
Written by Si Spencer and with art by red-hot sensation Sean Murphy (Joe The Barbarian) JOHN CONSTANTINE: HELLBLAZER--CITY OF DEMONS, a completely stand-alone 5 issue mini-series, begins this October!
Vertigo has a long history of publishing thought provoking stories that resonate whether they’re horror, crime, war, western, fantasy, urban memoir, science fiction or reality based.
The book is completed and then the rest of the book’s life starts. Getting it produced, printed and to the retailers is an entire slew of jobs in itself. Without the help of a lot of people along the way, I’d just be laboring away all day putting a book together that no one sees. Marketing, advertising, and getting the word out is just as important as every other step.
The writing is done and the art is turned in. But there’s still work to do. I think the design and presentation of books—not just graphic novels—gets overlooked. To me, the way the information is delivered is as important to and a key part of the content itself. Again, much like with color, if it’s not adding to the story and the narrative then it’s wasted space.
