Im waiting to see what the price point on these GNs are. The format sounds cool and sounds like it may help to keep costs down a bit but who knows now these days. Would love to own the two already announced. Just hope I can fit them in with my current buying habits.

Hey, this sounds good. I've been a fan of the Vertigo books ever since I found Fables and Y: The Last Man. Will probably get these titles if I find them

Yeah, this sounds pretty damn cool. They should try to bring in a slew of crime fiction writers and see who's work can be properly translated into comic work. I'm thinking Andrew Vachss, Robert Crais, and maybe some new crime work from Joe R Lansdale.

With hard cover? probably about the same as the rest of their hard covers. Cairo was about 25 and it was black and white.

Mark: I know Vachss did work for Dark Horse and he's done work for DC in the past as well on a Batman mini so the door is open a crack. Would be cool to see him bring Burke to life in an OGN.

Anti-Crest: You're probably right. $20 to $25 depending on page count. My only hope for a price cut is the size of the book itself is smaller, not just the page count.

Would love to see guys like Rucka, Brubaker, and Swierczynski have a go in that sandbox when their schedules allow.

Dude, I would love to see a Vachss OGN starring Burke and the gang. That would be badass.
