Deadman by Neal Adams (DC)
When we last left Deadman, the true story had barely begun! Deadman’s death was unsolved, and his fate was intertwined with that of his parents and siblings. Even the Dark Knight Detective couldn’t solve the mysteries of Boston Brand’s fantastic secrets! Now Batman is back, confronting Deadman about who was really behind his death. Was Boston Brand’s assassination a test for the League of Assassins? Why does Batman think Ra’s al Ghul was involved? And why does Deadman need the help of Zatanna, the Phantom Stranger, Doctor Fate and the Spectre to defend Nanda Parbat?
To take something as funny as a clown 🤡 and make it something to scare the shit out of you is a special talent.

I just told Max a two-minute version of it and I’m hoping it doesn’t scare him…

The last adaptation of a King novel that I had watched (The Dark Tower) was a disappointment.

A decade back, I had read the book and this is what I felt at that time…

Thankfully I never read this when I was a child. A nightmare-inducing tale of growing up in a small town with a resident monster.

To people who had watched Stranger Things first, several scenes would seem familiar. Why they even share an actor!!! But the novel came out first and had inspired Stranger Things television series. Not the other way around.

I’m eager to return to Derry in Chapter 2…
