DC has officially killed Vertigo. It's been floundering for the past few years but now it's officially dead. DC is re-branding itself with three different tiers of comics...DC Kids for ages 8-12, DC Universe for ages 13+ (i.e. the usual stuff) and DC Black Label for 17+.
Kind of a shame. Vertigo comics were a staple of my comic art (and writing) development. I'm not sure where I'd be without the influences of the likes of Chris Bachalo run on Death: High Cost of Living, Matt Wagner's Sandman Mystery Theatre, the Black Orchid miniseries and series, or even Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's run on Hellblazer. Granted lately, it's not been anywhere the heights of quality it had during the Sandman or even the Preacher & Fables days... But I'll always have fond memories of it and hope someday it'll return to a proper venue again.
Optimal Megatron: I'd consider buying that. I mean, visually, it's cool. It's just....does it need to be a small child?

iacon45: Wonder if Haslab Unicron fails, if they might try to a more scaled down release.

iacon45: I'm about to give up on the rainmaker set. Can't afford it now if it was available though.

iacon45: I was about to give up on Siege Micromasters but decided to pick up the Off Road team pack since they were a favorite back in the day. Weapon mode aside, these two restored my faith a bit. Both feel solid and don't have random parts popping off.

iacon45: Speaking of the Skywarp set, I need to take out the three Battlemasters before I toss the box.

iacon45: At least it's not SS Shatter bad.

Optimal Megatron: And got my Skywarp. Mine's chest is staying on pretty well, so I guess it's a toss-up

iacon45: Just got a processing soon email on Hightower from BBTS. Glad I made that back up pre-order a few months ago.
