Meet The Boy Who Painted Death In 'Art Ops' #11 [Exclusive]
Shaun Simon and Michael Allred's Art Ops is one of the titles leading the new wave of Vertigo books redefining and re-establishing DC's mature readers imprint for a new generation, and next week, Art Ops #11 sees guest artist Rob Davis step in for a story ominously titled "The Boy Who Painted Death." We've got an exclusive preview of the first few pages.
The Art Operatives Turn To Pet Control In 'Art Ops' #8
If you haven't been keeping up with Vertigo's Art Ops, here's the high concept: When figures from famous pieces of art --- your Monas Lisa, for example --- break out of their frames and start causing trouble in the real world, a special team of Art Operatives goes into action to stop them. Among their number is one Reggie Riot, who has a family connection to the organization and an arm composed of a bright, extremely prehensile embodiment of the very concept of art. Also, he can talk to art. Also also, Mike Allred draws it, so it looks amazing. In the next issue, though, it looks like the Art Ops are taking a bit of a different tactic as they move into solving pet crimes! It's an adorable new direction, as Reggie heads over to help a sweet old lady deal with an animal named Biscuits --- it just happens to play out in an extremely Vertigo Comics sort of way. Check out a preview!

Vertigo Unveils 12 New Titles for 2015
With most of its major hits and standout series having run their course months or years ago, Vertigo has been due for a renaissance for a while now. Judging from the announcements made at San Diego Comic Con late on Thursday, the publisher may be rallying, with 12 new series set to launch in the closing months of 2015 at a rate of one new issue #1 every week. Those 12 titles include a couple of previously announced books that have been rescheduled, but enough new announcements to suggest that Vertigo means to impress with its ambition. Sci fi and the supernatural are inevitably well represented, and the roster includes veteran talents, emerging names, and a few cross-disiplinary transfers in the form of novelists Lauren Beukes and Holly Black — the latter on a relaunch of Lucifer — and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.
