Not nu52 related, but DC related. Karen Berger, executive editor at Vertigo, has stepped down.

She's responsible for some of the best, most influential comics... well... ever.

Sad to see her go.

Routine meetings or something else? Anyone have any guesses, just for fun?

Yes, corporations do love to give people the gift of a job search for Christmas.

^Hmm, I wonder if that was why they decide to end Hellblazer?

^ More than likely. Slowly integrating Vertigo into the 52'Verse like they've done already with the Wildstorm universe.

Most of Vertigo was already slowly integrated back into the main DCU. Constantine and Hunter were the last two holdouts. The rest of Vertigo such as Fables isn't owned by DC Comics.

They say that Berger also picked her successor so that doesn't mean the end of Vertigo yet. However Vertigo/Wildstorm really suffered from:

1) the reworking of creator contracts that WB forced on them and which helped cement Image as the biggest publisher of Independent and Creator Owned Work

2) Levitz axing Wildstorm's new direction and partnership with Garth Ennis.

Now if we are lucky, Paul Levitz will be the next one to go.

I seriously want him off Legion of Superheroes. I am still a little sad that I finally had to drop that book. Just got so frustrated with his erratic story telling. I don't know if it has improved. It needs a new writer though.

Hopefully that'll be the Christmas surprise.

He can always go and teach or write a book and leave it to younger folks. Heck even Hickman has said that LoSH is his favorite franchise.

Oh don't tease about that Also don't put Scott Lobdell on as his replacement. That would also get me not to pick it back up.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Vaguely related to the New 52...

I've been buying Eaglemoss' DC Comics Chess Collection Magazine, and this week I got the Huntress piece.

The magazine that comes with it is... interesting. It tries to massage the history of the New 52 Huntress with the pre-Flashpoint Huntress, and what it creates is an interesting muddle -- the Earth-2 backstory, then "No Man's Land" and the Helena Bertinelli persona, and then Worlds' Finest. It makes sense, sort of, except that it's not clear to me at all that anyone in the New 52 Batfamily, except Damian, is even aware of Helena's existence.

It's a cool chess piece, by the way. I like this collection. It's pricey, but it looks great.

Too bad. You're not getting a "new" writer. You are, however, getting an old one. I think that this will be considered good news to Legion fans.
