Free Vertigo Reads
For almost twenty years, DC Comics' Vertigo imprint has been a pioneer in bringing intelligent, thought-provoking and creative comics to a mainstream audience.
Launching in 1993, Vertigo gave a home to offbeat, mature titles such as SANDMAN, SWAMP THING, DOOM PATROL, SHADE THE CHANGING MAN and HELLBLAZER. Uniting these books under one banner, they discovered what they all had in common and expanded upon it. This brought forth SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE INVISIBLES, PREACHER, Y THE LAST MAN, 100 BULLETS and so many other high caliber books.
Recent success stories have been FABLES, UNWRITTEN, DEMO, DMZ, SWEET TOOTH and MADAME XANADU.
Here you can read for free the first issues of many of these comics.
Titles currently available are:
THE BOOKS OF MAGIC
DEATH: THE HIGH COST OF LIVING
HOUSE OF MYSTERY
JACK OF FABLES
SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE
SHADE THE CHANGING MAN
Y: THE LAST MAN
