After I've read The Sandman I've started looking here for relevant questions to answer, and asking some of my own.
Now, Vertigo is an imprint of DC, created to publish more adult-oriented material. Here's the catch: Vertigo was founded in 1993, so most of the cool stuff - The Sandman, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Hellblazer, Swamp Thing, and others - has started in 1980s and was initially published by DC, and then moved to the Vertigo imprint.
I don't think it is correct to collect all of those works under the same dc tag. Vertigo has been separated from DC for a reason - their comics are thematically different, geared towards a more adult audience. There is also the problem of overlapping of universes: Vertigo characters (apart from Constantine and Swamp Thing) rarely make appearances in the DC universe, and vice versa.
Questions to consider:
- How should we tag questions about comics?
- how should we tag questions about films based on comics?
How should we proceed? Completely separate Vertigo and DC? Use them in tandem?
To provide some context, there appear to be 32 questions tagged with watchmen and 3 questions tagged with watchmen-2009; 6 questions tagged with hellblazer; 4 questions about v-for-vendetta; and whooping 37 questions about my dear sandman.
Why am I listing this? just to point that any potential retag will be relatively easy compared to what we've done. I'm not saying we should schedule another mass edit event - I can take the responsibility for retags, doing 3 or 4 a day, no rush.
I'm not asking for immediate retagging action, I just want to have a policy on hands.
