Karen Berger, former executive editor of DC Entertainment's influential Vertigo imprint, is headed to Dark Horse Comics to launch her own imprint Berger Books, a new line of creator-owned comics and graphic novels. Berger will acquire, edit and oversee the comics and graphic novels published by Berger Books.

While at Vertigo, Berger was responsible for bringing Alan MooreGrant Morrison, and Neil Gaiman to the American market, while bringing Brian Azzarello, Brian K. Vaughan, and Scott Snyder to the mainstream.

After 20 years at Vertigo and 30 at DC, Berger stepped down from her position as Senior VP at DC Entertainment and Executive Editor of Vertigo Comics, as Vertigo's releases shrank, characters were brought into the main DCU, andcontracts became less friendly to creators. She was replaced by Shelly Bond, who ran the imprint from 2013 to 2016, until her firing.

Titles, authors, and creative teams under the Berger Books imprint will be announced at a later date.
