Recommended Reading Order

Starting with a Neil Gaiman miniseries and running into one of my all time favorite ongoings by John Ney Reiber, the only downside to this series is that so much of the 75+ issue run remains uncollected.

This set of books collects the adventures of boy magician Timothy Hunter. He’s potentially the next Merlin. Neil Gaiman is too kind to sue J.K. Rowling.

Personally, I think Tim would whup Harry Potter. But hey, that’s just me.
