crimeline timeline

Since I have a rather personal interest in the Vertigo Crime line, I went out to look for a list of all its extant and forthcoming books: but to my surprise, no such list existed. (Vertigo Crime doesn't even have its own subpage on the Vertigo web site yet, oddly.) So here's what repeated Googling taught me, recorded so that you don't have to repeat my slightly tedious research.

Click on a cover to go to a book's Amazon page, if one exists.

Dark EntriesAugust 25, 2009Ian Rankin / Werther dell'EderaRankin is one of the world's foremost mystery authors.

Bronx KillMarch 9, 2010Peter Milligan / James RombergerFeatures the dread writer-protagonist trope but still looks interesting despite that.

Still bored? Watch the Vertigo Crime TV commercial.

Luna Park isn't part of the crime line--it's a standard-trim Vertigo OGN in full color.

I am a little perplexed by Luna Park: one of its Amazon listings explicitly calls it a Vertigo Crime book, but then says it's being published by Titan Books, not Vertigo! - while the other listing says it's Vertigo, but doesn't mention Vertigo Crime, and I admit its cover sure doesn't look like any of the others. I might email Will Dennis and get a definitive answer.

Read it and can verify that it's not part of the late Vertigo Crime line. Actually, it's far superior than any of the VC titles I've read in both script and art...but then, I've not had the pleasure of reading the one you authored (which, from the pages shown looks visually impressive as well).
