1602 is a triumph. The Marvel universe hasn't been this engrossing in ages. - Entertainment Weekly Neil Gaiman's vision of the Marvel Universe in the year 1602 The year is 1602, and strange things are stirring in England. In the service of Queen Elizabeth, court magician Dr. Stephen Strange senses that the bizarre weather plaguing the skies above is not of natural origin. Her majesty's premier spy, Sir Nicholas Fury, fends off an assassination attempt on the Queen by winged warriors rumored to be in service to a mad despot named Doom. News is spreading of witchbreed sightings - young men bearing fantastic superhuman powers and abilities. And in the center of the rising chaos is Virginia Dare, a young girl newly arrived from the New World, guarded by a towering Indian warrior. Can Fury and his allies find a connection to these unusual happenings before the whole world ends? In Marvel 1602, award-winning writer Neil Gaiman presents a unique vision of the Marvel Universe set four hundred years in the past. Daredevil appear in this intriguing world of 17th- century science and sorcery, instantly familiar to readers, yet subtly different in this new time. Marvel 1602 combines classic Marvel action and adventure with the historically accurate setting of Queen Elizabeth's reign to create a unique series unlike any other published by Marvel Comics

I'm not a huge Marvel fan, but considering the many talented folks who worked on this one, I wanted to read it. The story is interesting, and I love how Gaiman wove different characters into it. The art is beautiful, as well.

Brilliant alternate reality style collected series that plays around with many of the Marvel universes' characters and shifts them into the past. Gaiman does terrific work with this series.

Throughly enjoyed it. Not the typical Gaiman graphic novel (ie. Sandman) but still up to Gaiman's usual quality.

1602 takes all of the marvel characters and places them in Europe in the year 1602. Very good read well written by Neil Gaiman some of the art work is not the greatest and the ending could use some work but overall is a very solid read.
