"Karen has built Vertigo into an imprint which is simultaneously one of comics' leading creative and commercial successes, and an important resource for the creation of projects we can move from comics to entertain audiences in other media," Levitz said. "She remains the fieldıs strongest editor and it's my personal pleasure to recognize her achievements with this promotion.

Berger joined the DC editorial staff in 1979 and, within a few years, became known as an editor who sought to push mainstream comics into new territories. Her early series of note includes Amtethyst, Princess of Gemworld, Wonder Woman and Swamp Thing. Wishing to push comics further, she created the Vertigo imprint in 1993.

"It's great being part of such a progressive and forward-thinking company for all these years," said Berger. "I'm fortunate to have worked with some of the best writers and artists in the industry who have produced so many innovative and distinctive series and books, and I credit DC for giving us the creative autonomy necessary to do just that.

"It's also been incredibly gratifying to see that the film industry and book publishers have finally discovered what we've known all along: that comics and graphic novels are part of a vast and diverse storytelling medium, capable of producing singular and memorable work. We really are just at the beginning of showing we're a literary force to be reckoned with."
