There will be a new line of Vertigo Comics, "Vertigo Crime," which will specialize in black & white noir-ish OGNs. The first two will be Dark Entries by Ian Rankin and Werther Dell'Edera, and will star John Constantine; and Filthy Rich, by Brian Azzarello and Victor Santos. More titles will be announced later this year.

Another revamp of a classic DC title, The Haunted Tank, is expected later this year as well, from creators Frank Merraffino & Henry Flint. The spirit of JEB Stuart will be haunting a tank in modern-day Iraq.
