Danger Zone - A New Mature Readers Line To Rival Vertigo?
Action Lab, better known for their all ages comnics such as Princeless, Molly Danger and their NFL Rushzone book have strated a mature readers imprint, Danger Zone.
And just as DC Vertigo did with Disney's Touchstone, line, so Action Lab are doing with Jason Martin and his Super Real Graphics line. So we get Zombie Tramp from Dan Mendoza, Dave Dwonch?s Double Jumpers,?* The Trip, The Rabid, Ehmm Theory, Tony Fleecs and Tone Rodriguez?s American Goth Chick, Dave Dwonch and Rob Ruddell?s Ghost Town, Jason Martin?s Night of the 80?s Undead, Grant Gould?s The Wolves of Odin and more.
Here, take a peek...

Varying artists on different titles with wildly varying styles? Check.
A wide berth of story types ranging from what looks like horror, sci-fi fantasy to street level everyday stories? Check.
Mature-themed comics aimed squarely at someone who might be looking for something other than homengenized pg-13 superheroics (refrigerator stuffing and mind-wiping villains notwithstanding)? Check. Check. Check.
The only thing that remotely makes this seem like Avatar is some of the gore, in which case comparatively is nothing like Avatar. By your reasoning, Vertigo itself would be an Avatar book and I think it's safe to say that's not the case (tho' I could make a case for Crossed and a few other Warren Ellis titles having made it as a Vertigo book at some point...too bad WB had to stick their nose in DC's contracts that pretty much killed that idea and any other future books by him at the company)."Walking bones!"

Looks like a new line for Puerile and Immature readers.
They should have one of those labels on it 'Parental Advisory - This $#!+ sucks'“Everything in life is just for a while.”
