Enigma is a comic book by Peter Milligan, with artwork done by Duncan Fegredo, featuring a superhero called "The Enigma". It was published as an eight-issue limited series by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics, in 1993.


  • Michael Smith - A compulsive, late-20’s, heterosexual telephone repairman living a highly-structured life in Pacific City, California. His father was killed in an earthquake, and he was abandoned by his mother around age nine.
  • Titus Bird - The writer of the superhero comic book series “The Enigma”.
  • The Enigma - A man born with seemingly omnipotent powers who adopts the identity of The Enigma, a comic book superhero. He is an essentially emotionless being and unfamiliar with the concepts of right and wrong.

Additional notesEdit

  • This story takes place outside of the main DC Universe.
  • This was one of the first mini-series released when DC launched Vertigo, their "suggested for mature readers" line of comics in March 1993 and the first not to be connected to an existing book.
  • All eight issues of Enigma have special metallic inks on the cover.
  • One of the minor characters in Enigma, named Envelope Girl, made an appearance in Peter Milligan's run of Animal Man.
