I'm Loving Animal Man right now. It's one of the three top titles I look forward to each month.

 Is there no longer a Vertigo line at DC?

 Just noticed the pic...Animal Man kind of looks like Allred's Madman.

Y'know it's weird Sanctum. There still seems to be a Vertigo Line with titles such as Fables, Fairest, ect... But Constantine, Swamp Thing, Animal Man and several others have been moved into the mainstream DCU.

While I'm really enjoying the New 52, it really confuses me at times. Some things have been re-written and some have not, but they don't make it clear what has stayed the same. I'm enjoying it, but for a new reader, it's not really a good jumping on point, and I thought that was supposed to be the point of the Re-Boot. It's pretty messed up. But I am reading more DC titles than ever, so thats good.

 I thought the idea behind the Vertigo line was to tell more "adult centered" stories.  To seperate the Constantine and Swamp Thing from all the superheroes running around in their undies.  It freed up the writers to be a bit more explicit and tell tales such as Preacher and Sandman (were they not Vertigo?)  I've simply lost interest in guys in tights when it comes to the graphic medium.  Oh, I'll pick up the occasional graphic novel featuring Batman, or some such, but overall...it has become too expensive and too much effort.  I admit, the change up was not a good thing for a continuity/history nut like me.  Like I've stated in a previous thread...that is what held my interest.  And, I liked that they actually had aging heroes who were passing on their legacies.  The kiddies always have their eternally youthful heroes, so I'm not sure why this was necessary.  Especially, considering they went through so much effort to get rid of all the various Earths in Crisis only to go back to it again.

Inner...yes DC still has the vertigo imprint and still putting out Hellblazer and Fables as well as titles like American Vampire, iZombie, etc...But I think there's a pretty big wall now between Vertigo and regular DC.
