Vertigo, the DC Comics imprint that brought you "Sandman" and "Preacher," just launched its own blog called "Graphic Content," where they're going to be adding previews, news, and behind-the-scenes articles by editors.

They've kicked off the party with a download of the very first chapter of "Peter and Max," a novel novel coming out this October that's set in the "Fables" universe. Although fans of the modern-day myth comic will recognize familiar faces, the novel about Peter Piper (of the Pickled Peppers) and Max Piper, the Pied Piper of Hamelin is designed to stand alone, and requires no backlist reading for entry.
