Some of My Friends Read Comics 124 – Sandman, Vol. 4: Season of Mists + Marvels: Eye of the Camera #4

somfrc124

It’s high time we read some Sandman for this show. No, not the the literal sand guy from Spider-Man. It’s the Neil Gaiman series that made Vertigo Comics famous.

We jumped straight into Volume 4: Season of Mists, which seems to be less about seasons and more about land ownership rights.

Then we keep reading Marvels: Eye of the Camera and we regret every second of it.

It’s time to continue Marvel 1602! In the last 4 issues of the miniseries, we make our way to America and find out how this universe connects to our regular 616 universe.

But will Gaiman’s 1602 survive? (Spoiler alert: nothing ever dies).

And we also get our long read of Marvels by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross really rolling with issue #1.

Back in the 1600s, there were apparently superheroes in England. I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but I will take Neil Gaiman’s word for it.

He wrote about Marvel 1602 in an 8-issue miniseries that very strangely seems to parallel the Marvel Universe we are already familiar with. We read the first 4 issues and then we started our long read of Marvels with issue #0, which takes place in the 40s.

So much history! My head hurts.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 058 – Prez

somfrc058

His name is Prez. He was the first teenage president of the USA.

Unfortunately he only got 4 issues from DC back in 1973.

He sure made the most of them though, defeating some Russians, a bunch of gun nuts, and even Dracula and the Wolf Man.

Since poor Prez deserved a decent send-off, we also read Sandman #54 to see Neil Gaiman’s take on the same character 20 years later!
