Seven premier issues from Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics featuring stories by some of comics' most popular writers and artists including Mike Carey, Brian Wood, Bill Willingham, Brian Azzarello and many others.

DMZ >>written by Brian Wood, with artwork by Wood and Riccardo Burchielli is about the brutality of combat when brought home in a future Manhattan condemned to serve as the front line in a new American civil war.

Army@Love >>drawn and scripted by Rick Veitch, with Gary Erskine on inking duties. In a merciless satire of thoughtless imperialism, military occupation is transformed into a viral marketing scheme gone mad.

Jack of Fables >>written by Fables writer Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges. The most cocksure Fable of them all finally gets the title his outsized ego requires--as well as the punishment his hubris demands.

The Exterminators >>created by writer Simon Oliver and artist Tony Moore. It's the bugs' world, we just live in it--something that the grizzled pest control team of Bug-Bee-Gone is about to discover in the most alarming way.

Scalped >>written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by R. M. Guéra. A prodigal son returns to his native reservation, where drugs, alcohol and despair have made a fertile ground for greed, corruption and murder.

Crossing Midnight >>written by Mike Carey and illustrated by Jim Fern and Eric Nguyen. The world of Japanese myth spills over into the modern day, with terrible consequences for a brother and sister pressed into supernatural service.

Loveless >>written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Marcelo Frusin, Danijel Zezelj and Werther Dell'Edera. In the chaos and violence of Reconstruction-era Missouri, one couple wages a private campaign of revenge against the occupiers--and their own past.

The dark side of this collection is "Exterminators" and "Loveless", two of the five debuts here, are now canceled. "Crossing Midnight" is in possible danger of cancellation as well. All in all, this is definitely worth a whole lot more just for the cover illustrations alone.
