Vertigo Shocker: Vertigo Announces Quarterly CMYK Anthology

There are bodings in this article, and they aren't well.

In news that's sure to not bode well for Vertigo, the DC imprint announced that they'd be publishing a quarterly "CMYK" anthology, with individual issues tied together by a common color theme.  Each issue will focus on an individual color, starting with a Cyan issue this spring.  The first issue will feature stories from Jock, Fabio Moon, Amy Chu and several other creators.  No release date or price point was made available, but I'm sure we'll here more soon.  

This marks Vertigo's most recent attempt to make in-roads on a comic anthology. While the imprint has released several "themed" anthologies in recent years, none have had the market presence or acclaim as Dark Horse's Dark Horse Presents, which has regularly featured Eisner Award winning short stories over the last few years.  

Here's a full description of CMYK, courtesy of Nerdist:

The four colors that are the basis of comic coloring—CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, BLACK—serve as the inspiration for talent to push the boundaries of short storytelling in the VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK anthology series.

Starting with stunningly simple, bold covers, CMYK will defy all conventions of traditional comic book anthologies. The unifying color may suggest a mood, a plot point, a coloring technique—limited only by the imagination of the incredible talent involved. Starting with CYAN this Spring with stories and art by Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Martin Morazzo, Robert Rodi and Javier Fernandez, Amy Chu, Joe Keatinge, Cris Peter, Shaun Simon and Tony Akins and more! Followed by MAGENTA in summer, YELLOW in fall and BLACK in winter, you’ll see color throughout the year as only Vertigo can deliver.
