Feeling dizzy? It's Vertigo!

It’s my Vertigo week. Late yesterday I talked with Percy Carey, who chronicles his rise through hip-hop — and the ups and downs of an often-violent life — in an upcoming graphic novel for Vertigo, DC’s mature reader imprint. This morning, I chatted with Jason Aaron, writer of the ongoing “Scalped” series for Vertigo.

It’s a big month for Aaron. The first “Scalped” trade paperback just came out. He’s also the writer on this month’s double-sized issue of “Wolverine” No. 56 for Marvel and a “Ripclaw” one-shot for Top Cow.

August is a big month for Carey, as well: He’s got a new album coming out, “The Hunt for the Gingerbread Man.” Look for his graphic novel, “Sentences: The Life of M.F. Grimm,” in early September. And look for Comics Fan columns on both of these creators.
