Vertigo sampler offers 'First Taste'

In one of the smarter moves made by either of the Big Two, DC Comics is releasing Vertigo: First Taste, a 160-page trade paperback that collects six issues from six Vertigo titles. And the price? Just $4.99. The sampler features the first issues of current series 100 Bullets, The Books of Magick: Life During Wartime and Y: The Last Man, and delves into the Vertigo backlist for Saga of the Swamp Thing #21, Death: The High Cost of Living #1 and Transmetropolitan #1.
"For those readers who haven't gotten a taste of these incredible titles, your excuses are up!" says Karen Berger, VP - Executive Editor, VERTIGO. "This is the perfect opportunity to get the first bite of some of VERTIGO's definitive and popular series, and experience the first sensation of some powerful and riveting work."
The sampler will be solicited in February Previews for an April release.
