There’s going to be some nasty business going on this summer when Vertigo Comics launches its pulpy, not-for-kids imprint called Vertigo Crime. The first release will be ‘Filthy Rich’ in August, which is written by Brian Azzarello, the Eisner Award-winning Chicago writer who has shown quite the flair for blood-drenched drama with ‘Joker,’ the graphic novel that caused quite a stir last year, and ‘100 Bullets,’ the Vertigo series that racked up quite the body count during its decade of compelling gunplay. Here’s an early look at the cover of ‘Filthy Rich’ and three pages of its hard-boiled street tale.

Looks like something to keep an eye on...
