I’ve just read 1985. It was not easy to find, although I imagine it would have been easier had I read it closer to its release date.
I loved every second of it. I pored over comics as a kid and gave them up for similar reasons as Toby, although my mother didn’t destroy my collection. In this era of nostalgia properties, I suppose it is not so unusual, but this one really took me back to the wonder of reading a story at 11 or 12. I downloaded it, but have tracked down a a hard copy and am excited to read and re-read it when life offers some free time.
Most of all, I wanted to thank Mr. Millar for making this happen. I understand it was a process and I’m surprised it hasn’t had more of an impact (this was a game-changer). I do believe that scene with a brooding Vulture carrying menace from a perch played a part in his villain choice for the latest Spider-Man.
