Welcome back to SYFY WIRE's new podcast, Behind the Panel, hosted by Mike Avila.
Our new series continues with the second of our four-part history of Vertigo Comics, the imprint that expanded the appetites of comic book fans into genres such as horror, fantasy and crime drama. In this episode, we discuss how Karen Berger and a group of British writers helped chart a new course for comics.
In this episode, we speak with Neil Gaiman, Karen Berger, Colleen Doran, and Jill Thompson about the rise of The Sandman, one of Vertigo's most successful titles. Also: more early Vertigo tales from Grant Morrison.
Behind the Panel's theme song is "Failsafe" by Cellarscape.
