Most nerds know that there are plenty of weird, mature, literary comics that explore dark themes. A lot of these comics even reach out from the conventionally nerdy demographic to grab ahold of readers and pull them into the geeky thrall. A lot of these comics come from Vertigo.
DC’s Vertigo imprint wouldn’t exist without Karen Berger. For a long time, she served as an editor at DC Comics, where she gathered a team of unique, relatively unknown voices in comics to bring new kinds of stories to the masses. She also helped Neil Gaiman launch his Sandman series and served as an editor for the young writer for years.
