Hell, a large part of its commission was the result of Vertigo's upcoming anniversary, same reason as they tried to get more Invisibles off the ground.
What is sad about this, of course, is that this is NOT the legacy of Vertigo; the legacy of Vertigo isn't any specific title or set of titles, but the pushing forward of the industry, the new ideas and new genres and new creators it allowed to flourish.
My sincere hope is that all of this is just part of Vertigo's upcoming anniversary push, and that we'll also get a big push of new titles with new creators; Collider being pushed back, perhaps, to allow for a big concerted launch of all of Vertigo's stuff; new Lemire, new Snyder, new Gaiman, new Morrison (Seaguy), new Azzarello (whatever he wants), new Aaron, and then some genuinely new voices out of Image and Top Shelf.
A celebration of past successes (Sandman, 100 Bullets, Seaguy), stalwart creators (Morrison, Aaron, Lemire, Snyder, Azzarello), and new voices (Fawkes? Kindt? Kot?)
