Or Paradox Press, for that matter.
I have great memories of reading ‘Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children’ and ‘Gregory’ in the late 80’s. Books like this opened my mind to the kinds of stories that comics could tell - and did so even before the advent of Sandman.
I mean, Paradox gave us ‘Road to Perdition’ and ‘A History of Violence.’ And Piranha gave us a ‘Prince and the New Power Generation’ comic book written by Dwayne McDuffie!
I don’t know if any of it has been digitized, but if the powers-that-be are going to consider putting Vertigo on DCU eventually, I’d hope they’d at least consider the DC imprint that once pioneered alternative comics for the company.
