What’s the best Deadman comic on here besides JL Dark. I started the Neal Adams & wasn’t feeling it. Should I go back & retry. I was only 2 issues in. Or is there one that you would recommend to someone who is very familiar to the character. In other words, it doesn’t have to be early. I could jump right in with advanced stuff, just need a hand on which one/ones are the best on this site.
Neil Adams is the original. His teamups with Batman are great in the Brave and the Bold. Honestly the original I feel are the best. Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love is a nice story about him.
Too bad you didn’t like Neal Adams work on him. I assume you mean his original stories in…Astounding Tales I think it was? I read several of those a couple months ago and rather enjoyed them. Simple but good stories.
There’s a user named DeadmanBrand or something similar on here. I assume he’s a big Deadman fan and can give you some better insight. I can’t say I’ve read any other Deadman stories that stick out to me.
Thanks guys. I love Neal Adams I was reading a mini series by him. I’ll go back & try it out again. I was only 2 issues in & it was the day after a dr diagnosed my dad with throat cancer. It turned out to be a misdiagnosis, it was a bacterial infection that mimicked literally every symptom of throat cancer. So, needless to say. I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to enjoy a comic. It was the Neal Adams 2017 #6 issue mini series I read 1 1/2. I just looked & there’s a bunch more. I bet I like it on a retry plus the other stuff looks promising. Just read that mansion one u said, it seems up my alley. Appreciate it.
Astounding tales I just caught that. I didn’t see u mentioned that. I’ll try that & mansion one. I can’t think of an adams read I didn’t like so I’m gonna go with my head wasn’t in the right place cuz I bet I’ll like it & the 2 u mentioned look good. Just read about em on- line all positive remarks.
Correction. It was Strange Adventures 205 and the next several issues. Simple but fun.
I will say they have a giant plot hole in that Deadman could possess his enemies and get out of nearly every predicament, but whatevs. They are fun.
Sounds good. Thank u, I don’t mind plot holes as long as, like u said, there still a fun read. Doesn’t bother me a bit but thanks for the heads up.
I’ve been summoned by BatWatch!
Yeah, unfortunately I can only echo what’s already been said. You only get back so much when you search Deadman. But I would try Neal Adams again, who is pretty much why I have the user name and icon that I do. Do the Strange Adventures stories, however. That more recent mini-series was not my favorite either. For something more modern, somebody else already mentioned, but Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love is solid.
Right on DeadmanBrand will do.
I just read and enjoyed Brave and the Bold (2007) #14, starting Deadman and Green Arrow. Great art, great ending.
The Kelley Jones miniseries were pretty good. I don’t remember what they’re called, though…
dogweilder9, biff-pow & Batwing.
Thank u. I will honestly get to all those. I read a lot!! So not just saying that
I will read those. What storyline was i?, when Deadman was ordered by Dr. Fate to
Not only become Fate, but watch over Grayson as well during a crisis?
Man, that was a great one, can’t locate it in my notebooks.
Sorry I butchered your tag.
Read Deadman: “Dark Mansion Of Forbidden Love” last night. Absolutely loved it. I’ll get
to the others but that was a great start,thanks for all the help.
I’m going ape on Deadman. Following a master reading order almost all are on here. So many that u can fill in the gaps with the few that aren’t on here. All your suggestions are included. I was reading the suggested Strange Adventures, which was awesome. I looked to see where/if the story continued & found a list that has all your suggestions, & backstory issues etc in order. There all amazing, thank u sincerely.
I like it when people give feedback on how they liked suggestions. More people should do this.
Thank u. It’s so great to get advice from people who really know the characters. I have received countless suggestions on comics for characters I wish to read about. When I posted this I’d read a few of the Neal Adams & wasn’t feeling em. Then I took the recommendations on here & went back & read the earliest suggestions. I thought I knew Deadman pretty well. Starting at the silver age suggestions & earlier stuff made me realize I didn’t know what I should to be jumping to the Neal Adams stuff. Now I can’t wait to get there, b/c his story makes so much more sense to me. I read the dark mansion of love & it was awesome. Then I came back & saw the Strange Adventures suggestion. It was unreal & I got hooked on following Deadmans storylines from the start. It also transcends into the animated stuff. I’ve seen all the toons a million times. The Brave & the Bold Batman’s were always a favorite. Reading these made me want to go back & watch those episodes with Deadman again. Sorry I wrote a book, most people know I write long posts. I don’t mean to but bottom line, thank u for the advice & the compliment. I really appreciate it.
