    actually,i think Spectre would be best for a vertigo series. Swamp thing Cameo doesn't count.

    She's a Wonder Woman's sister until the new 52 came now she doesn't exist and a few fanboys aren't happy, so I started this topic because I'm not a big fan of how the 52 just decided to bench characters.

    I was alluding to her various origins and retcons over the years:

    I would like Donna Troy to have a series in Vertigo because the DCU's new 52 would give her another origin that would screw up the character even more instead of just writing stories of her present & future.
    To paint comic books as childish and illiterate is lazy. A lot of comic books are very literate - unlike most films.

    You may not be aware of other Vertigo series like The Losers, The Creeper, Sandman, Black Orchid and more.

    Anyway, if it's a DC-owned property, and it's not Hellblazer, it's no longer welcome at Vertigo.
    Sadly this :(

    Why sadly? There's no functional difference between Animal Man at Vertigo and Animal Man in the new 52.

    The only exception is Hellblazer, but pretty much yeah. Besides, it would be kind of pointless. You might as well find a way to integrate her with Azz's book, which is a lot more plausible (given that Wonder Woman has a family of demigods now).

    Because now I won't get Shade and Human Target books written by Milligan from Vertigo (where he excels) anymore ;/

    You weren't going to ever get those anyway...

    Meanwhile, in the New 52, you did get some Milligan-Shade... What are you complaining about? It's just a label on the book.

    Fine, other characters that Milligan could have written them better than the previous writers :p

    Both of them left JLD after eight issues :/, besides Milligan works better with Vertigo since he isn't as restricted as he is with DC.

    Whether that is or isn't true is very much up for debate when working on corporate properties, even for Vertigo.

    I have thought about it for a while, ried to parse the structure of the sentence, but I have no clue what you are trying to say here.

    There was a typo on my part. My bad.
    Was just referring to characters such as Human Target and Shade, that Milligan had written better than the previous writers before him.
    With the whole "no DCU in characters in Vertigo" thing, we won't see Milligan or anyone else write C/D-list characters with their own ongoings for Vertigo and definitly not for the current DC where the sales matter so much.

    As someone who likes Milligan's work, especially Shade and Human Target, I would much rather he do an original, creator owned book.

    Though it would be nice to see Shade or Chance make an appearance in Stormwatch or whatnot.
