Awesome Cover Friday: Sandman Mystery Theatre

This is Noetic Concordance's 500th post

News Flash: Not all comics from the '90s were bad!

Sandman Mystery Theatre was an excellent series which ran from '93 to '99. It was written by two of my favorite comic writers, Matt Wagner and Steven Seagle and it featured Wesley Dodds in these cool, pulp-noir stories. There was a bit of confusion at the time because it overlapped a bit with Neil Gaiman's Sandman, another Vertigo title. Also, the covers of both series had that same multimedia look.

The design work on these covers, alone, is worth a look. The cool subject matter is just icing on the cake.

sounds like my kind of stories, and those covers are worth a look indeed. I'll have to see if I can try to track some of these down.
