Paul Gustavson comic
One of the most celebrated writers in the history of comics teams up once again with one of the industry's most accomplished artists! Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell once again venture into the world of myth and angels. Constructing and maintaining all of heaven and earth is an immense task, which God has divided up amongst the various ranks and stations of angels. As with any such huge effort, there are bound to be casualties. This unique passion play sheds light on the hands behind creation, as well as one lonely man in Los Angeles who gets to hear the whole story of a most unspeakable crime: a murder in paradise! P. Craig Russell adapts Neil Gaiman's poignant short story with the subtlety and grace which earned him two Eisner Awards for his work on Dark Horse's Ring of the Nibelung series. The reunion of these two legendary comics creators is a guaranteed masterpiece.

All-new tales! A free-form band composed of some of the best talent in the medium got together late one night in Vertigo's back room and cooked up the anthology VERTIGO JAM, a great place to experience a riff of Vertigo's ongoing monthly books. The first cut is an 8-page SANDMAN number by Neil Gaiman and Kevin Nowlan that explores some of the nooks and crannies of Dream's kingdom. Other tracks include a HELLBLAZER tale by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon in which Constantine has an encounter with an old flame; a SHADE, THE CHANGING MAN piece in which our hero explores the religious morals and the carcass of a baneful priest, as recorded by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred; a DOOM PATROL tune by Rachel Pollack and Eric Shanower in which the team must contend with a pair of promiscuous spirits who have escaped from their headquarters; an ANIMAL MAN cut by Jamie Delano, Scot Eaton and Mark Pennington in which Buddy Baker and a straight-shooting fowl talk turkey; a haunting SWAMP THING melody about a ghost lost in the plant realm of the Green, composed by Nancy A. Collins, Phil Hester and Kim DeMulder; and the bizarre experimental sounds of KID ETERNITY by Ann Nocenti and Sean Phillips.
