Neil Gaiman’s Lady Justice Vol. # 1  (graphic novel review)

Initially, I thought ‘Neil Gaiman’s Lady Justice’ fit in with the ‘Neil Gaiman’s Teknophage’ and ‘Neil Gaiman’s Mr. Hero’ saga and it does but there’s no evidence of that in this volume. However, I snuck a peek at Neil Gaiman’s Lady Justice Vol. # 2 and Mister Henry Phage puts in an appearance there so […]
