Vertigo

Today the theme at Drawbridge is, unfortunately, again a sad one similar to
last weeks. Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics, let go of three of their long
time editors this week and it appears (I don’t know all the details) that Vertigo
will reduce it’s out put in general.

Good luck to Pornsak Pichetshote, Jonathan Vankin, and Joan Hilty!

As for today’s theme, I first thought I should pay homage to all the above
editors somehow. Then I realized that would not be a sketch, that would be
a poster that would take all day. And I can’t pick one and dis the other two!

So I’ll just point out some of the great books they've put out:
THE UNWRITTEN, CUBA ,HOW TO UNDERSTAND ISRAEL IN 60
DAYS OR LESS,THE QUITTER, INCOGNEGRO,
and REVOLVER

Rather, moving forward, I draw your attention to a book that I hope
survives anymore belt tightening. “Scalped” by Jason Aaron,
and R. M. Guéra is book I quite enjoy. Enough said.

Geronimo is NOT in scalped by the way. I… just like Geronimo and
Scalped is set on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation. It was
that or a hot babe next to a casino sign and who
wants to see that?
