the EDGE

     Everybody wants to co-opt the term "Cutting Edge." To truly be cutting-edge, one must push the envelope and test the boundaries of conventional thought. The EDGE is filled with stories by and about the world's greatest cutting-edge creators. These are tales from the EDGE. This collection celebrates the 10th anniversary of Vanguard's flagship cutting-edge comics a nthology, EDGE, with a softcover tour-de-force packed with new works by the world's greatest artists! These top artists have riveted the world with their visionary contributions to fine art, comics, film and illustration.
