Recently, I was reading Moore's run on Swamp Thing, and the issue which reprinted the first Swamp Thing story (adding the Alex Olsen Swamp Thing to the Alec Holland Swamp Thing's mythos), and the framing story, featuring Cain and Abel got me to thinking about the pre-Sandman existences of some of the major characters...after tracking down their earlier appearances, it occurred to me to share the first appearances of the ones I knew of... (I'll be ignoring most of the superhero characters and John Constantine, since, with one exception, they only had roles in one arc, aside from The Wake. (Or, in the case of Wesley Dodds was barely a cameo in either of his appearances, even if they were in different arcs.))

Thus this post. )

So, there we go...hope you enjoyed.

"I went back and re-read those issues and remembered Kole had asked one of the other characters a question that when answered would have been extremely controversial at the time. For various reasons, that storyline went in a different direction, so I never had the chance to explore it, but now I could. So we see Kole pretty much asking the very same question, but now we get an answer. It may not be as controversial as it would have been in 1984, and I decided not to do something different just because I could, so because of the nature of Convergence, I got the chance to do the story the way I originally wanted." - Marv Wolfman

These days the words "Comic Book Event" tend to fill me with dread, and not in the good way.

IMHO it translates as somwehere between "Desperate Marketing Ploy" and "We hope you believe that this one WILL have lasting consequences" with subtle tones of "We're also dragging in other titles to derail them completely for marginal returns, so tough luck if you're a fan of secondary titles".

Now they're not ALL bad, many have at least one good tie in, and "Necrosha" did bring Cypher back, but personally I haven't followed an "Event" with anything better than cautious distrust for about 20 years.

So picking one as my spotlight was a little tricky, and my mind kept going back to the beginning, and in some ways, the one that started it all...
