CM Podcast 153 – Sebastian O

Back in 1993, DC created an imprint called Vertigo which was to feature comics with mature themes.  One of the first miniseries to be published under that imprint was Sebastian O.

Sebastian O was written by Grant Morrison with artwork by Steve Yeowell.  It was only 3 issues long and it featured a Steampunk Victorian dandy named Sebastian O who was wrongly imprisoned then escapes and seeks vengeance on the people who put him there.  It’s a comedy by the way.

I read the original miniseries when it came out but Jon has never read it until now.  We’ll let you know if you should read it and if it deserves an ongoing series.

We also give a little history lesson on Vertigo and some of it’s earliest titles.  It’s a fun podcast we put together this week to help brace you for the fallout of next week’s Avengers: Infinity War movie podcast.

Your comics pal,

Jim
