Karen Berger & Berger Books
As head of DC Comics' mature-reader imprint Vertigo from 1993-2012, Karen Berger launched the careers of superstar comics writers Garth Ennis, Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman. And, she produced most of the graphic novels that James Romberger has drawn : the first edition of the now-classic graphic memoir 7 Miles a Second, the terror fable Aaron and Ahmed; and the pulp mystery Bronx Kill. In 2017, Karen began her Berger Books imprint at Dark Horse; there she continues her focus on seriously edgy but thoughtful and elegantly presented comics like The Seeds by Ann Nocenti and David Aja; She Could Fly by Cantwell and Morazzo; the late Anthony Bourdin's horror/cooking anthology series Hungry Ghosts; and this expansion of Post York into a complete graphic novel.
