Vertigo Comics founder Karen Berger left the publishing industry 20 years after providing a platform for some of the most inspired (and twisted) auteurs and artists, including Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon, Neil Gaiman, and Marc Hempel, as well as the many people who’ve worked on Hellblazer. (Vertigo’s also published many other comics that didn’t spawn TV series, of course.) Vulture reports Berger’s now poised to change the face of comics again, with her own line, Berger Books.
