Sandman Campus Detectives

Once again, piggybacking off Thought Balloons: Jill Thompson continues to go manga-tastic on the Sandman mythos with Dead Boy Detectives (click the link for a 5-page preview). This time, instead of simply retelling a story arc from a different angle (see At Death's Door), she borrows the characters of Edwin Payne and Charles Rowland from Season of Mists and sends them off on their own adventure. The two English boys who refused to die start up their own detective agency, get called on an assignment to the States, and then enroll in a foreign-exchange program with the CLAMP School Detectives. (Okay, so I made up the last bit, but wouldn't that be funny as hell?)

There's a preview (probably the same one, since I haven't clicked through yet) at the end of the new My Faith in Frankie b/w collection, too. I think it's going to be keen!

Yeah, the preview on Pop Culture Shock was actually scanned from the Frankie TPB. (Note to self: Pick up that one too ... )

I did realize that when I actually went and read what Kevin had written, but I didn't want to post a followup comment to say, "Right, ignore me!" Now I did it anyway.
