Vertigo releases Time Warp #1. It’s the latest instalment in the sci-fi and horror annuals the imprint has been publishing for, what has it been now, 3 years? And I’ve enjoyed almost each one so far.
This issue features two covers, both of them excellent. So I ask you: which is your favourite? Cover A is by Eduardo Risso of 100 Bullets fame. Cover B is the variant by Jae Lee (who I loved on The Sentry and Inhumans, both from Marvel)

I believe this is the last “new” book under Karen Berger’s tenure as queen supreme at Vertigo. This is based solely on my best memory of the solicitations in Previews from a few months ago and the timing of the announcement that Berger was stepping down.
I can totally appreciate that a person is sometimes ready to make a change in their life. But I’d still like to hear more from her on the timing of her decision. I can only assume there was something happening in the editorial halls of DC Comics that pushed her to make this move.
Back to the book. It features an all-star talent lineup:
Writers: Matt Kindt, Damon Lindelof, Peter Milligan, Toby Litt, Ray Fawkes, Simon Spurrier, Tom King, Gail Simone
Artists: Mark Buckingham, Jeff Lemire, MK Perker, Victor Santos Montesinos, Jorge Corona, Rafael Albuquerque, Tom Fowler, I.N.J. Culbard
Here are a couple of preview pages drawn by two of my favourite writer/artists – Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt:
