    I think this is probably a much more likely scenario than DC/WB shutting it down completely. I think as long as they have a stable of at least a few strong writers who don't mind the apparently restricting contract Vertigo apparently offers now, it'll still be around for that outlet, if nothing else.

    It will only get worse, but not because Berger's departure. Warner's executives are to blame for this. One of them forced DC to offer a shitty contract to new authors. Meanwhile, indie publishers are offering way better conditions. It's no wonder that everyone's bringing their ideas to Image, Oni Press, etc. Unless you are Scott Snyder, Jeff Lemire or someone who wishes to enter DC Comics, Vertigo only offers disadvantages.

    It will depend on the new,upcoming series in spring of 2013 and second half of 2013. If there is a few good new series, Vertigo is still doing well. There are several good series now but there needs to be a new growth, a new generation.

    Its not only doom and glooms rants but what the people in charge of Vertigo comics has planned and if they can get comics by rated creators. A new Scalped or a new American Vampire can make it feel still strong,fresh imprint.
    Pull List:
    The Walking Dead,Fatale,Near Death,Storm Dogs,Happy,BPRD,XO-Manowar
    American Vampire,Animal Man,Swamp Thing
    Daredevil, Winter Soldier,Indestructible Hulk

    The upcoming cross-overs, reboots, glitter and 1 per 20 books ordered alternate covers will improve the line drastically. :)

    I know it's cool to hate on Geoff Johns now (and to a lesser degree, Lemire), but I thought their contribution to the Ghosts anthology had a lot of potential; if not as an ongoing than maybe a series of minis/one-shots.
