In October, DC/Vertigo is publishing VERTIGO RESURRECTED, a collection of one-shots and specials from Vertigo’s long and varied publishing history. Featured in the collection is Warren Ellis’ never-before-published Hellblazer story, ‘Shoot’.

Vertigo has a long history of publishing thought provoking stories that resonate whether they’re horror, crime, war, western, fantasy, urban memoir, science fiction or reality based.

So why not dig through the archives and bring some of them back? Welcome to VERTIGO RESURRECTED – a series of one-shots and specials geared to do just that–embrace history and stories that connect with the present day activities of our favorite protagonists, antagonists and creators.

“Shoot,” Warren Ellis’s much-talked about, but never published, HELLBLAZER story involving schoolyard killings leads this mega-sized VERTIGO RESURRECTION special.

Also included are rarely seen tales exploring the disturbing depths of horror, war, romance and science fiction by Brian Azzarello, Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis and artists Jim Lee, Phil Jimenez, Bernie Wrightson, and others. Cover by Tim Bradstreet.

Through the magic of the internets, I’ve read ‘Shoot’, and I’m glad to see it finally getting published. It’s an intense and well-crafted story that is (sadly) still as relevant today as it was when it was created over a decade ago.

We are at a total loss for more info here.
