Hey folks, we’re back for the second week running with a special Vertigo edition of 5.2 Reasons. If you haven’t read it yet, be sure to check out last week’s Sandman column right here. But this week we’ve left the world of dreams and entered Fabletown. So, sit back, relax, and get ready for a little tale we like to call "The Fables fable."
Hello, DCComics.com and VertigoComics.com readers! Today’s edition of “5.2 Reasons” is so huge that we’re publishing it on both websites. Why? Well, in case you didn’t know, we’re currently in the midst of celebrating The Sandman on VertigoComics.com with a month-long promotion called “25 Days of Sandman,” and frankly, we wanted in on that bad boy.
When it comes to defying expectations, look no further than Vertigo.
A mature readers imprint of DC Comics, Vertigo has long upheld a standard of mind-bendingly awesome storytelling with such award-winning classics like V for Vendetta, Hellblazer, Preacher, 100 Bullets, Fables, Y: The Last Man, Neil Gaiman's Sandman (all of which easily rank as some of our favorite comic series of all time), and so much more.
It’s that time again folks! No, we don’t mean that it’s time to sit directly in from of the A/C because it’s summer and just way too dang hot to wear pants (although, this is pretty true as well). We mean that it’s San Diego Comic-Con time! A wondrous time where nerds from all areas of pop culture—from movies and television to videos and of course comic books—unite to celebrate and share the love that comes with being a fan.
Welcome DC Entertainment fans to a brand new weekly feature where we list off 5.2 Reasons of varying subjects of greatness from across our line of books, collectibles, and more!
Wednesday marked the launch of BEFORE WATCHMEN: COMEDIAN, and while old Eddie Blake might see the world as a dark and twisted place, we personally like to take a look at the positives—namely the existence of totally awesome comic creators like Comedian writer Brian Azzarello.
