05:15 pm: marvel 1602
Prompted by my X-Men watching, I decided to read Marvel 1602 the other day. this is an interesting beast, a Neil Gaiman-penned work about the 1960s Lee/Kirkby-created Marvel heroes appearing 400 years too early, and going into both the consequences of that and the reasons why. I'm not hugely into the background material, but was able to figure out much of it on my own (had to look up a few people to see who they were supposed to be. Handily it comes with a dramatis personae at the start.) I heartily recommend it and will lend it out if anyone wants.

If you liked 1602, I'd reccomend the follow-up series 1602: A New World. It's not written by Gaiman, so it's not quite as good, but it's a fun read. Don't think it's out as a collection yet, though, so you'd have to buy the individual issues.
