This is what I get for picking up something *just because* it's written by Gaiman. Superhero comics. (like the big DC on the cover shouldn't have been a clue... but it's from 1989, was Dark Horse even around yet? And I guess Sandman -no I haven't read them all yet - was DC.)

Not a bad thing. Dave McKean's art is gorgeously dark and gritty-realistic. And since I'm in the same boat as Black Orchid - I know nothing of her story - this 'origin' type journey of self-discovery is a good one.

Helps if you know the Batman verse (and in our days of movie saturation, who doesn't?) but not necessary.
