Vertigo Revival – By The Numbers

Vertigo Revival

Back in April 2016, while DC was preparing their Rebirth line up to win back a large part of the comic book readership, Vertigo was having it’s own growth structure.

In the previous year of 2015, 12 new titles were announced as a way to reinvigorate the line up with plenty of different tone books with plenty of horror with Survivor’s Club and Clean Room to even some quirky light books with New Romancers.

The sales of these titles wasn’t exactly what DC was hoping for as such titles as Art Op and Survivor’s Club became stealth mini series, most of them being cancelled in the end as at the time of writing this article – only two remain as ongoing series with Unfollow by Rob Williams, Mike Dowling and Clean Room by Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt.

It should be noted however that Vertigo was transparent with the length of certain titles as Sheriff of Baghdad was planned for 8 (extended to 12), Jacked was going to be 6 while titles such as Red Thorn, Survivors’ Club and Slash & Burn had no planned end date.

Let’s break down the first four shipped titles for each series – Keep in mind that the general rule of thumb for Marvel/DC is that a title that ships under 14k usually gets cancelled while the same amount shipped for Image book is considered a success.

Marvel’s Agents of H.Y.D.R.A.

Marvel's Agents of H.Y.D.R.A. returns April2017 teaser

SOOO Yeah, SPOILERS – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is returning in April with a whole new Marvel’s Agents of H.Y.D.R.A. story-line. The big finale of the current LMD story came to a big exploding conclusion. Many thought this may have been one of the best episodes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but I beg to differ. The episode where Fitz gave his live to save Simmons from drowning to death was THE best episode of the entire show’s run. This weeks episode was VERY GOOD and the reason it seems like it’s the best is because the show has been sub-par for the past few years so a VERY GOOD episode seems like it’s the best yet but it really wasn’t. It was Very Good though, more on that next…

BtS Radio episode #2 (Feb 15, 2017)

bts radio podcast episode 2 feb 15 2017

Here’s our 2nd episode of our Between the Staples Radio Show as a podcast! I went 2.5 hours after a fumble this morning at 10am to get started as it took a bit due to mic issues but NONE of that is on the podcast which is why I went and rambled on. I started with a song then talked about the following: LEGO BATMAN & JOHN WICK Chapter 2 movies, CW TV shows The Flash & Arrow. A musical song break. More Arrow then I went on about some comics that I’ve been reading for both Marvel & DC. Lastly, I talked some video games I’m playing (The Division, How to Survive 2, Destiny, GTAOnline) & thoughts on them and ended with some more quick points on Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Agents of Shield. Enjoy! Remember. NSFW. Use headphones!
