Out this week, and I'd forgotten about it, is the first issue of "Sandman: Overture", as Neil Gaiman returns to his most extraordinary creation.

From CBR's preview and interview



Neil Gaiman and JH Williams III? Welp, that's me sold!

And one of his creepiest creations makes an appearance )

In the Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader trade they also collected some of Gaiman's older Batman stories from back in the day. One of them, about a recuiter for the Suicide Squad evaluating Poison Ivy to see if she'll be a worthwhile addition to the troupe I'll cover later.

But for now, here's a bit from a story involving a group of reporters who come to Gotham to make a documentary about how Batman is actually responsible for the amount of supervillains in the city...
This takes place just after Death in the Family, for those who were interested in when this was set. )

From Neil Gaiman's Sandman series comes a unique form of punishment that only the Lord Of Stories could envisage

(Warning, below the cut lies commentary on a plot that involved rape. I don't go into graphic detail or anything, but better to warn those that it might be a trigger for)

This is from Calliope )

Oh man, I recently started reading Hellblazer again. Just sat down and was pouring over the issues, and I found #27, a classic Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean story, and I remember how hard it hit me when I first read it. The artwork is superb, the story is unhindered by years and years of Hellblazer continuity, it's just pure, unhindered John Constantine. Don't get me wrong, I love almost everything that came after it (to an extent) but this is just amazing.

So I thought... it's been over a year since my last post... why not come back and share something with you all that I adore?

As per [personal profile] ravenous_raven 's request; "Death Talks About Life"

This was released as a giveaway for use in American high schools, so I don't see a problem with posting the whole thing. If Mods feel otherwise, let me know.

Banana's can be FUN! )

Don't believe me?

The Golden Age is considered to have begun with Action 1 and the appearance of Superman, as well as the Phantom, in 1937.

Doctor Occult was introduced in 1935 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, despite the names listed on the strips below according to Wiki, and hails from the action adventurer/detective schools. Comic Book Resources has a nice article on him here. But the scans are a little small, so I rustled up what I could. Read more... )

Marvel: 1602 is one of the few comics that I found not through S_D, but through an internet search on the lost colony of Roanoke. Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the New World is a major character in this 8-part series, with the ability to shift into animals (based on this legend). The history nerd in me absolutely adores this. Another semi-historical tale, Superman: Red Son, is perhaps my second favorite Elseworld.

The premise of Marvel:1602 is that the heroes from the regular Marvel Universe are transplanted into the year 1602, just as Queen Elizabeth I lay dying and King James of Scotland set to take the throne. We meet familiar-yet-not characters such as Sir Nicholas Fury, the Queen's spymaster, Doctor Stephen Strange, the Queen's physician, Peter Parquagh, Carlos Javier and his school for sons of gentlefolk, the Four from the Fantastick, David Banner, Grand Inquisitor Enrique, aided by Sister Wanda and Petros, and Otto von Doom.

Here is a teaser showing us these characters from the first issue (4 pages):

Now, ask your first question )

Also there are dinosaurs.

I'm normally not a Neil Gaiman fan. I keep giving him chances and finding out I dislike his work all over again. But, sometimes, I think he's brilliant. One page from Detective Comics #853.

Here's the last issue of the ANGELA three-issue series that Neil Gaiman penned, about the character from SPAWN.



"Could we forebear dispute, and practice love,
We should agree as angels do above."

Edmund Waller 'Divine Love'
