At Vertigo, Berger presided over many classics. Her work provided a platform for distinctive voices like Garth Ennis (Preacher), Steve Dillon (Preacher), Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Lucifer), Marc Hempel (Sandman), and Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra (Y: The Last Man), not to mention the Hellblazer and iZombie comics. (As well as under-appreciated gems like Sweet Tooth, DMZ, and The Unwritten.) So, Berger returning to comics after a few years away is exciting.
Bourdain's comic will be followed by a non-fiction release from Emma Beeby and Ariela Kristantina called Mata Hari. Berger also announced The Seeds by former Catwoman and Daredevil writer Ann Nocenti. It is set in "an imminent America where fact-based reporting is gasping its last breath" and "flora and fauna have begun to mutate."
The last new series announced was Incognegro: Renaissance, a prequel to a 2008 graphic novel by Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece. Berger Books will also release an oversize edition of Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons’ 2004 classic The Originals: The Essential Edition.
The run will start with Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts on January 31, 2018, fulfilling all your ghost chef dreams.
