DC's "other" comics
Vertigo
Paradox
Vertigo 1 Vertigo 2 Vertigo 3 Vertigo 4
DC launched the Vertigo imprint under group editor Karen Berger, dedicated to more sophisticated story telling aimed at adults. Doom Patrol (64), Shade the Changing Man (33), Hellblazer (63), Animal Man (57), Swamp Thing (129) and Sandman (47) were moved over to the new imprint as a number of new mini series were lined up to jump start the line.  Unlike the regular DC Timeline, this table attempts to include all the Vertigo titles, so if I missed any, please drop me a line.
