At Nothing But Comics, we’ve recruited DC Comics super-villain Egg Fu to answer your questions about comics! So send your questions to Egg Fu at email@example.com.
Dear Egg Fu – The owner of my local comic shop noticed that I often buy titles published by DC’s Vertigo imprint, and he told me that Disney had something to do with the creation of Vertigo. Sadly, shortly after he started telling me the details he was shot and killed by a customer that was enraged by all the white pages in Jonathan Hickman’s comic books. Can you give me the info on Vertigo’s Disney connection? – Lisa S.
“Also, a few months into the inception of Vertigo, I rehired Art Young. He was an editor who worked for me for a number of years and had gone over to Touchmark when Disney decided for five minutes that they wanted to do mature comics. Art was there for a year, and when he came back to DC he brought a number of projects, like Enigma, Mercy, and Sebastion O.” – Karen Berger, interviewed by Gary Groth, “Vertigo Roundtable“, The Comics Journal #163
