The senior vice president of sales denied that the sales of its periodic issues were cause for concern.
He pointed out the success of new original graphic novel Get Jiro! and pre-orders of the Vertigo Girl With The Dragon Tattoo adaptation, as well as excitement regarding the forthcoming Sandman miniseries and Django Unchained comic.
Wayne also said that titles including Fables and its spinoff Fairest, Punk Rock Jesus, Saucer Country and Spaceman continued to perform well as single issues and collections.
"So we've got strong periodicals, strong upcoming periodicals, strong collections and strong original graphic novels all in the works," he told Comic Book Resources. "That's the way we work across that imprint.
"I think we have some exciting things on the board, and I don't think you need to be worried about Vertigo per se. I think with an imprint like that that's trying to stay on the cutting edge and be as topical with its storytelling as possible is always looking to reinvigorate itself, and I don't think that the next couple of years will be any exception."
Vertigo is DC's creator-owned imprint for non-DC Universe content of a mature nature.
It has been the home of some of the publisher's most successful, acclaimed and long-running titles including The Sandman, John Constantine: Hellblazer and Fables.
