  1. Not just Gaiman, but the artists deserve credit, too, especially for this striking image, which doesn’t even have any writing on the page!

  2. I was so excited for this comic to come out. I already knew who Neil Gaiman was and had loved Black Orchid. I still remember buying #1 at my local comic store (RIP Comic Castle in San Diego) 33 years ago this week, and I still have my copy (and my entire run).

  3. Is there a video essay on how it changed comics? I love Gaiman but I couldn’t get past the 3rd book (my fault, not the book). I ended up really enjoying the audio book but I’m sure there’s a lot I missed.

  4. This whole piece is a masterwork. I’ve too many copies, the small omnibuses, the big hard cover annotated versions, the digital versions.

    Kudos to Neil, Karen Berger and the whole team behind this.

  5. This could have been written last week for how well it holds up.

    Seriously, anyone who hasn’t read this series yet owes it to themselves to at least check out the 1st volume in the trade paperback. I guarantee your local library/half price books has a copy, you could probably even find it for free online.

  6. Now if only the Volume 2 of the Omnibus would come back in stock so I could continue reading it.. :c
