Adult comic book enthusiasts and lovers of cutting-edge artwork will applaud the ground-breaking masterpieces in this collection of fantasy, crime, mystery, and surreal illustrations. The book spotlights outstanding artwork that has appeared under the famed Vertigo imprint since it was launched by DC Comics in 1993. Always pushing boundaries, this art can be baroque or minimalist, haunting or fantastical, painted or computer generated--and, as this volume amply proves--it is always unforgettable. A wide range of acclaimed artists and designers includes Dave McKean, Marshall Arisman, Rick Berry, the Starn Twins, Michael W. Kaluta, Sue Coe, Greg Spalenka, Barron Stacey, and Brian Bolland.
Alisa Kwitney is a novelist and former Vertigo editor. She lives in New York City.

Well-known and much-beloved for giving intelligent grownups comics they can read in public, DC's Vertigo line has devoted as much energy to its art as to its stories. This attention underlies every page of Vertigo Visions, a collection of 185 images from covers, trading cards, and gallery work by 75 artists. Dave McKean's dreamy collages from the Sandman series and Brian Bolland's precise caricatures of the Invisibles highlight a collection of consistently startling work. Tremendous care and feeling suffuse the art--in oil, watercolor, digitally enhanced photography, and ink, and a range of styles spanning the centuries. Editor Alisa Kwitney's text gently persuades inveterate readers to let our eyes linger over each image as though we were actually reading a thousand words, reminding us that paying attention delivers substantial rewards. --Rob Lightner
