Longtime editor at DC's Vertigo imprint leaving
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — DC Entertainment says its executive editor and senior vice president of Vertigo — a groundbreaking imprint whose titles have included "Hellblazer," ''DMZ" and "Sandman" — is leaving early next year.
Karen Berger will step down in March after nearly 20 years at the helm, saying in a statement released by DC late Monday that she is ready for a professional change.
During her tenure at Vertigo, the imprint saw a wide range of writers and artists — Neil Gaiman, Jill Thompson, Becky Cloonan and Brian Wood, among them — who produced titles beyond the traditional superhero and villain archetype.
Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance and writer of "The Umbrella Academy" tweeted that Berger gave "us weird kids in high school a Sub Pop Records for comics."
