Vertigo Videos: Documentary on Making the Vertigo Encyclopedia

As part of our series collecting great works of audio and video about our key love, Vertigo, we are re-posting the wonderful short documentary put out by DC Comics about the making of the Vertigo Encyclopedia.  This volume created a massive reference tome for everything the imprint had done, with lots of detail for serious fans.  The documentary itself is also a look at the formation of Vertigo and how the imprint became a genre all of its own.  There is a lot of great commentary from Vertigo founder Karen Berger before she left DC Comics.  It really jumps into key characters like Sandman and many of the “British invasion” creators like Alan Moore and Grant Morrison.  A real gem for Vertigo diehards.
