Newest Neil Gaiman story...1602

Post by Ghost Rider » 2003-06-29 02:20pm

Looks pretty good...but I'm really hoping it turns put well...and is Gaiman doing something for mainstream in quite a few years.

Funkier still it's not an elseworlds/what if

Confusing. How could this not be an elseworlds? How could it have any effect on the Marvel universe?

Only Gaiman knows...apparently it's going to be some odd time FUBAR from what it seems...though I gotta give him, it takes balls regardless to do a story like this.

Wow the artwork...

Story sounds cool, too, curious on how Gaiman is gonna do the "howdunit", hope it's not in a routine way.

Dammit, a British Comic writer and it's still nearly impossible to get it in the UK. That does it, I can see myself getting a Forbidden Planet subscription when I get back home. Maybe a trip to London to do a little back issue and TPB shopping as well. Ho hum, who needs money anyway. :wink:

The most annoying thing about it? That he has to use the profits from this to fund reclaiming the rights of Miracleman, something that the Law courts awarded him unequivocably and which Mcfarlane is still appealing and acting as if it didn't happen. :evil:

Why a nice guy like Meil Gaiman should get treated like this is beyond me. He agree's to help out the start of Spawn by writing some incredible issues at the very start and giving it a boost (as did Alan Grant and Alan Moore) and he gets shafted time and again by McFarlane. :evil:
