NEIL GAIMAN'S NEVERWHERE #1
NEIL GAIMAN'S NEVERWHERE, the classic novel of urban fantasy by the New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed writer of SANDMAN, comes to comics for the first time in this unforgettable nine-part series. VERTIGO's exclusive adaptation features brilliant scripts by Mike Carey (LUCIFER, HELLBLAZER) and the astonishing artwork of Glenn Fabry (THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS, PREACHER), with Neil Gaiman overseeing the project as consultant. Hidden far beneath the modern city is London Below, a strange alternate world of swirling colors, casual magic and gothic danger, populated by misfit characters who have, quite literally, fallen through the cracks of the workaday world above. The tale begins as Richard Mayhew, a very decent but very ordinary man, stumbles across Door, an extraordinary young lady from a London that Richard never dreamed could exist. His single act of kindness toward her immediately costs him his fiancé, brings a pair of unthinkably ruthless assassins to his flat, and sends him on a quest that could quickly end with his own untimely demise.
