Synopsis: Collected here are 185 color prints representing cover, trading card, and gallery art from DC Comic's Vertigo imprint, known for its wide range of off-beat work in the genres of horror, fantasy, crime, and suspense, as well as history, sci-fi, and autobiography. The volume includes pieces from 75 artists, working in watercolors, oils, and collage. Text and captions are provided by Alisa Kwitney, former Vertigo editor. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Review: 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
