Single issue One-Shot. 7 Miles a Second is the story of legendary artist David Wojnarowicz, written during the last years before his AIDS-related death in 1992 and drawn by James Romberger.
Part of the Vertigo Verite series.
In 1996, several comics titles (two one-shots and three miniseries) were collectively released under the sub-imprint Vertigo Vérité. The short-lived "Vérité" line, evoking the realism of Cinéma vérité from the French for 'truth,' was a 1996–98 attempt to promote new Vertigo projects devoid of the supernatural qualities that had gotten to define the publisher.
The five titles released under the "Vérité" banner were:
Seven Miles a Second (May 1996) by David Wojnarowicz and James Romberger
The System #1–3 (May–July 1996) by Peter Kuper
Girl #1–3 (July-Sep 1996) by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo
The Unseen Hand #1–4 (September–December 1996) by Terry LaBan & Ilya
Hell Eternal (April 1998) by Jamie Delano and Sean Phillips
