    The only ongoings left are FABLES, FAIREST, and SAUCER COUNTRY (which I swore was a mini, but at 12 in February).

    Unless they're kicking off a bunch of new series in Winter/Spring, they have 1 long running book, a spin off at 11 (after getting rid of JACK not that long ago), and then a relatively new book.
    They have announced other books and miniseries will be coming out.

DC's top selling book (Batman) is shifting about 116,000. Mature readers books don't traditionally sell big (Walking Dead being the notable exception), and I'm pretty sure Vertigo has more or less always relied on books being perennial trade sellers rather than the monthly unit shifters. Yes, less than 10,000 seems low, but it's not like that's the whole story.

    It's been obvious for a while the DC wants rid of Vertigo. It was pretty clear when Karen Berger didn't get a seat at the table when they had the management reshuffle. They've reincorporated all the former DCU Vertigo characters into the New 52, they've trimmed back on deals for creator owned books (to the point where otherwise rock solid DC man Grant Morrison is taking his creator owned stuff to Image), cut their range to almost nothing, and have Berger editing at least one New 52 book (Dial H). They've been winding it down slowly so as to not cause a fan outcry during a major transitional period for their big moneyspinners, but Vertigo is undoubtedly not long for this world. Tp be honest, on the balance of things, it's a minor miracle that Hellblazer is being allowed to go out on a milestone issue.
    I believe you are over-reacting, but time will tell.

    Care to elaborate - because I just looked at their latest solicits and there is absolutely nothing new except for an adaptation of Django Unchained (and I already made a post about Vertigo shifting from original material to adaptations)

    Oh, and ironically, they have Hellblazer and Swamp Things trades on the latest solicit

    Two science fiction mini series are coming out I think.
    The Wake and Trillium.
    But those are mini series, not sure if any ongoing series are planned.

    Thanks Obii. Yeah I just looked it up as well. You are right - 2 new mini series, no new ongoings, and American Vampire going on at least a year-long hiatus

    Doesn't sound like a healthy imprint to me
