The Vertigo Encyclopedia

Apparently, Dorling Kindersley have just compiled a Vertigo Encyclopedia in its series of DC-themed reference books.  Compared to the Batmobile Owner’s Manual, at least this theme has some depth and relevance to it, but judging from this interview with executive editor Karen Berger, I’m not really sure if this rises beyond the typical topical DK fodder, and get to the level of the quite excellent Eyewitness books.  I haven’t seen the book myself, but a blurb riddled with plattitudes like “up close and personal”, “cutting-edge work” or “extraordinary journey” don’t really fill me with hope.

That said, I think it’s quite interesting to hear Berger sum up the Vertigo mission in a short few minutes, even if those few minutes are edited disastrously : there’s far too many cuts in the voice for it to sound like natural speech flow, and at points you can even see the cuts in the visuals.
