The graphic novel kick continues! Somehow I'd missed Marvel:1602 by Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert. Another library score! This book is all over the place character-wise, we've got all sorts of people, both good or bad guys, big characters and small. Of course, some of the characters I might have considered small a few months ago have a bigger profile now, like Black Widow. It is an interesting take on the world; how would our heroes operate when communication can take days and travel can take weeks? Mutants are called witchbreed and, of course, are supposed to be demons. Nick Fury is the Queen's spymaster, Daredevil and Black Widow are agents. There are some bad guys, Magneto for instance, but there's a bigger evil lurking around as well. The art is great and i really like the etching covers. a 5.
