Six New Titles From Vertigo in the Fall

  sndm_promo_highresAs Neil Gaiman’s Sandman helped usher in the new line of comics as it transitioned from DC Comics proper to their Vertigo line, Morpheus will help usher in a new renaissance at Vertigo. The New York Times has revealed that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman prequel, now titled Sandman: Overture, will begin October 30. But that’s not all. Also on the schedule are six other titles including another Gaiman-inspired book. What are they? Let’s take a look.


Hinterkind – This comic takes place in “a post-apocalyptic world in which the creatures of myth and legend have returned” written by Ian Edginton (2000AD) and art by Francesco Trifogli.

HINT_Cv1The Witching Hour – An anthology one-shot featuring short stories exploring witchcraft by the talents of Kelly Sue DeConnick, Cliff Chiang, Matthew Sturges, and more.

Coffin Hill – A dark fantasy about a mysterious force left buried since the Salem Witch Trials combining the fantasy author Caitlin Kittredge and artist Inaki Miranda.


The Dead Boy Detectives – Edwin and Charles, ghost detectives originating from Sandman #25, will have a new series handled by Toby Litt. Fables‘ Mark Buckingham will also provide layouts and painted covers.


The Discipline – Fellow Vertigo debut author Peter Milligan tells the story of a woman amidst a shadow war. It is also described as an “erotic thriller” (kinky!). Leo Fernandez will be on art duty.

Suiciders – Lee Bermejo tries his hand as both writer and artist in a tale of two boxers on opposite ends of the spectrum in a futuristic Los Angeles.
