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.
You are here
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.
This Fall DC Entertainment will be publishing VERTIGO ESSENTIALS, reprints of the first issues of some Vertigo’s most celebrated titles beginning with THE SANDMAN #1 and V FOR VENDETTA #1 in October.
Published as flip books, these promotionally priced, oversized issues will feature two covers—one showcasing the comic series and the other spotlighting a stunning all-new image by artist Ryan Sook, debuting in the gallery above!
This year, DC Comics, Vertigo and MAD Magazine will be taking Comic-Con programming by storm with well over a dozen distinctly exciting panel presentations. That's a lot to stay on top of, and even if you're at the show, chances are you're not going to catch them all. But never fear, we'll be bringing the panels to you as part of our Con Away From Con coverage, right here on DCComics.com.
Vertigo: The Sandman 25th Anniversary and Beyond!

Bestselling author will revisit groundbreaking comic book series in October with new story
This October, author Neil Gaiman returns to the realm of the Endless for an eagerly anticipated tale that will bring readers back to one of the most critically-acclaimed comic book series ever. THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE will unite Gaiman with visionary artist J.H. Williams III and reveal a previously untold story in THE SANDMAN mythos. The announcement was made today by Shelly Bond, Executive Editor of Vertigo, an imprint of DC Entertainment.
Just in time to read or re-read before Gaiman’s return to THE SANDMAN series this Fall, Vertigo will publish THE SANDMAN Omnibus Volume 1.
This massive hardcover collects THE SANDMAN issues #1-37 and THE SANDMAN SPECIAL #1—the first half of Neil Gaiman’s highly acclaimed classic horror comic book series.
The 2012 Bram Stoker Award Nominees have been announced, and we are pleased to report that Vertigo’s THE ANNOTATED SANDMAN VOL.1, the first of an incredible four volume series, has been nominated in the category of “Best Non-Fiction.”
THE ANNOTATED SANDMAN, is a fascinating look at the New York Times best-selling series, written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris Bachalo and many more.
2012 was a great year for DC and our fans. Whether it was in the pages of our comics, on the big or small screen or on the floor of our booth at Comic-Con, 2012 was a year of unforgettable moments. Some were thrilling, some were funny and others left us absolutely breathless. In a year full of moments that won’t be forgotten, these are some of the best. Introducing 2012’s DC Comics’ Hall of Fame!
