November 19, 2013 - Neil Gaiman Trio - See description below for titles

The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes, The Sandman: Doll’s House and Marvel 1602 – Neil Gaiman

In PRELUDES & NOCTURNES, an occultist attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. After his 70 year imprisonment and eventual escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power. On his arduous journey Morpheus encounters Lucifer, John Constantine, and an all-powerful madman

In DOLLS HOUSE, during Morpheus's incarceration, three dreams escaped the Dreaming and are now loose in the waking world. At the same time, a young woman named Rose Walker is searching for her little brother. As their stories converge, a vortex is discovered that could destroy all dreamers, and the world itself.

In MARVEL 1602, Neil Gaiman's vision of the Marvel Universe in the year 1602! The year is 1602, and strange things are stirring in England. In the service of Queen Elizabeth, court magician Dr. Stephen Strange senses that the bizarre weather plaguing the skies above is not of natural origin. Her majesty's premier spy, Sir Nicholas Fury, fends off an assassination attempt on the Queen by winged warriors rumored to be in service to a mad despot named Doom. News is spreading of "witchbreed" sightings - young men bearing fantastic superhuman powers and abilities. And in the center of the rising chaos is Virginia Dare, a young girl newly arrived from the New World, guarded by a towering Indian warrior. Can Fury and his allies find a connection to these unusual happenings before the whole world ends? Collects Marvel 1602 #1-8.

    Pretty great discussion! It was lovely that we'd all read all the titles and enjoyed them enough to have fun conversations about them. (Which of course spawned interesting off-shoot conversations.) It also helped that everyone there is a Neil Gaiman fan. :)

    Hi gang...I have been looking forward to this for a couple of months. Big Gaiman fan. Rereading American Gods right now, as a matter of fact. But I feel like I might be coming down with a cold. If I am not 100% sure this isn't the case, I won't risk exposing anyone and will bail out. That said, I am still hoping to make it!
