The NZA Posted May 26, 2003 Share Posted May 26, 2003 As part of hsi agreement with Quesada for legal defense against McFarlane in the rights to Miracle Man (a whole other forthcoming thread), Gaiman agreed to do a Marvel mini-series of whatever he liked, in his long awaited return to comics. Though he has this & his soon to be released Sandman: Endless Nights special, he hasnt done any work in the medium since his original Sandman series, as far as I can recall, so there's a bit of hype goin around on this one. Again, Comic Book Resources had this one. Like a teenage pop star, Marvel Comics has learned they can get a whole lot of mileage out of the art of the tease. And with nary a bared midriff in sight, The House that Stan Built is back at it, with a new three part tease released Tuesday, hyping (or perhaps just hinting at hyping) Neil Gaiman's "1602." The only accompanying blurb: "This August, EVERYTHING changes." No further details were forthcoming at press time, with Marvel spokesman Michael Doran simply saying "More info to follow another time." Those hungry for more information can get a tiny bit more information in the May 20 edition of Neil Gaiman's online journal. The author confirmed the project includes "lots" of Marvel characters (although he specifically says one in particular is not there) and that the teaser art is all from the miniseries' first issue. Kubert on the interior, Isanove painting the covers...im glad some people paid attention to their excellent teamwork on Origin. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
