In Spring 2012, Vertigo will publish a BLACK ORCHID Deluxe Edition from The New York Times Bestselling author Neil Gaiman (Sandman) and innovative artist Dave McKean.
Created by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, THE UNWRITTEN has been called “a roller-coaster ride through a library, weaving famous authors and characters into a tale of mystery that is, at once, oddly familiar yet highly original,” by USA TODAY. Some of the most talked about issues have been the fabulous one-offs—from the Willowbank Tales of Mr. Bun to the Pick-A-Story origin of Lizzie Hexam. In the vein of those amazing issues, Vertigo will publish a series of 5 interconnected issues that will enhance the reading experience of the ongoing series.

This is my fourth year at the San Diego Comic Con—my second with DC COMICS—and every year I feel it gets bigger and better.
