Five Stars: Karen Berger On The History Of Vertigo And The Future Of Innovation

FiveStars-KarenBerger

Karen Berger came to DC comics at the cusp of the 1980s as editor for titles including Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld and House of Mystery. As executive editor of Vertigo, Berger made stars of writers and artists who have gone on to dominate the industry, and the imprint became synonymous with an experimental, stylistic approach which gave it an added edge over every other publisher.

In 2012, Berger resigned from Vertigo. She has been largely absent from comics since, but at Image Expo earlier this year she announced a new series from writer Sara Kenney and artist John Watkiss called Surgeon X, with herself as editor. ComicsAlliance spoke to Berger to look back at her extraordinary career, and her continued dedication to bringing new and experimental ideas to the medium.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases for September 21 2016

BCE-Featured

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

‘Spawn’ Creator Todd McFarlane Confirms a New Movie Is on the Way

Spawn
Image Comics

With studios green-lighting every superhero property they can think of in search of the next big blockbuster franchise  —  just what the heck is a Max Steel anyways? — it’s kind of surprising that we haven’t seen a Spawn remake. Not only is Todd McFarlane’s character one of the biggest comic book characters to be created in the last twenty years, he is also one of the few prominent black superheroes (anti-superheroes?) to have already gotten his own movie adaptation. Diversity that comes with an R-rating? Just tell the suits that it’s Deadpool-meets-Black Panther and watch the dollar signs come rolling in.

De Campi, Parker And Blond Send Soviet Assassins Behind Enemy Lines In California In ‘Mayday’ [Preview]

Mayday, Image Comics

Looking back on it from 2016 through the lens of neo-noir and true crime histories, California in the early '70s seems intimidating to say the least. And if that's the case for me, imagine how it strange, frightening and dangerous it might have been to someone sent there from another country on a mission of murder.

That's exactly the situation facing the main characters of Alex de Campi, Tony Parker, and Blond's Mayday, in which two Soviet agents are sent to California to assassinate a defector, and find themselves trapped in America.

Chikara Pro Wrestling is wrestling for people that think they might not like wrestling. It’s essentially a fast-paced, high-action stunt show with plenty of drama, comedy and excitement, and it's essentially the closest thing you’ll get to seeing superheroes in real life. I love Chikara so much that I've just spent three days watching the huge King of Trios tournament alongside other ComicsAlliance staffers!.

If you love Chikara or the art of lucha libre in general, there’s a wealth of comics out there for you. Earlier this year, I recommended five comics for fans of WrestleMania, but this week I’ve chosen five comics with a decidedly lucha twist that are perfect for fans of Chikara Pro Wrestling. Love that? Try this!
