This week Andy and Derek return with another special Publisher Spotlight episode, this one devoted to Vertigo. Although the Two Guys with PhDs demonstrate superhuman abilities when tackling a variety of titles, it’s obvious that they cannot cover all of Vertigo’s history and output. Instead, they have decided to focus on the most recent wave of comics coming out from the imprint. This includes the many titles that have been released since the summer and in the wake of Karen Berger’s departure. Derek and Andy discuss the significance of these latest releases, what they suggest about the possible direction of the imprint, and how these comics fit within the larger history of Vertigo. The recent series that the Two Guys discuss include:
Hey everybody, Brother Shepherd and your good Doctor are very pleased to bring you a gem of an episode, where we once again retrieve a story FROM THE ARCHIVES and riff all over it. Detective Comics #459 to be exact. That’s not all though! We gaze into the future and take a look at some upcoming comics via previews and rant a little bit about the last episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. Ultron even tries to take over the show at one point, and we get a letter from a special secret admirer. You can’t miss this one, so listen to it NOW and get it out of the way! The order of caretakers loves you, mwaaa! *blows sloppy kiss*
