DC To Pay For All Of A Retailer's Vertigo-Themed Advertising - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
He let us know that it was ecplained to him that DC see Vertigo as a place for new creators to cut their teeth and find their voice. I certainly look forward to seeing that in practice. Also that they will be sending PDFs in advance to retailers, making the first three issues of each title returnable if you order enough and paying 100% of co-op advertising costs for shop ads that promote Vertigo books.
Usually DC pays 50% of such advertising, this is a step that will ensure Vertigo is prominent on a local level, on TV, on radiuo, in cinema, in print and online.

He also told us that DC/Vertigo are finally reprinting Brian K Vaughan‘s Swamp Thing run in collected form.
