AP Wire gets it wrong about Vertigo

While writing about the Sandman prequel Neil Gaiman's doing for his thriller series from 1989-96, the AP Wire gets some details wrong:
It was Sandman's ensnarement that saw Gaiman launch his telling of the DC Entertainment character for Vertigo Comics in 1988, a move that pushed him, the character and the publisher into a new level of storytelling and sales, with collected editions quickly becoming best-sellers.
Earth to AP: "DC Entertainment" didn't exist at the time; it was only DC Comics. Nor did the Vertigo imprint, which was only launched 4 years after The Sandman debuted. What a goof.

That aside, how strange this project - which relates to the older continuity post-Crisis on Infinite Earths - is being published now, probably as an attempt to draw back people repelled by Dan DiDio, but at this point, I'm not sure many will care.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
