Celebrating Octavia Butler + Mourning Vertigo Comics The Fantastic Forum team join us, hosted by Ulysses E. Campbell and featuring Rioters Sherin Nicole and Drew Bittner along with The Great Geek Refuge’s Mike Lunsford. The crew raise a glass to Octavia Butler on the anniversary of her birth—the legendary writer would have been 72. Then they discuss the Vertigo shutdown and why DC is reshuffling its imprints. There’s some confusion and a lot of heartbreak over this news and the FF team break down their feelings. Of course, they can’t talk about Vertigo without shouting out its creator Karen Berger and longtime executive editor Shelly Bond. Cheers to them!
