Friend of the blog Jim Murphy over at Apparently Smart posted this commentary on Marvel’s 1602. Jim writes about why these versions of the established characters work. Check it out.
I don’t know if it is because I’m too tired, bored or lazy to do a proper post today; I’ll let you decide. In the meantime, I’m going to post this episode of The Simpsons which prominently features writer Neil Gaiman in it!
They do make a reference to his The Sandman, but they fail to acknowledge Black Orchid or even 1602. Oh well; it’s still a great episode and probably one of the best in recent years.
