That's the spirit!

If Vertigo does go away (and that's a big if) you're just as culpable as anyone at corporate level by not buying their books.

It's almost like you want the imprint to die so you have more reasons to hate on DC.

I buy every Vertigo series in one format or another with the exception of the corporately owned Hellblazer and House of Mystery.

'Corporately owned'

You say this like it's some kind of affliction, some of Vertigo's best books have been corporately owned, Sandman is isn't it? Books Of Magic. Isn't Fables not totally creator-owned either?

And anyway, I'd go as far to say that because Hellblazer and House Of Mystery (both of which are really good books, regardless of who owns them) are 'corporate', out of the money spent on them, more of it will go to keeping Vertigo going on, than to the creators.

You can't wriggle out of this one, if Vertigo is cancelled, then you have nobody to blame but yourself.

I hope Vertigo dies and takes DC and Marvel down with it.

Well done.

Hicks is overrated, he's like the Fables of stand-up.

Talking of Fables, it has superheroes in it now? Jesus fuck, what a shark-jump.

It's more likely than a Didio-led conspiracy to destroy indie comics.
