Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:


The Dead Boy Detectives are on the case. When several children go missing in a small English town, a series of strange and unexpected twists take them to Free Country, a place that dates back a millennium, where children never grow old and are free from the abuse and tyranny of adults. But Free Country is failing, and what it needs is the strength of five innately powerful children-including the young sorcerer Timothy Hunter-to restore their uncanny world to what it once was.

Collects THE CHILDREN'S CRUSADE #1 and THE CHILDREN'S CRUSADE #2, written by Gaiman (who also pens a brand new introduction) with co-writers Alisa Kwitney and Jamie Delano. A brand-new middle chapter written by DEAD BOY DETECTIVES writer Toby Litt and drawn by artist Peter Gross (THE BOOKS OF MAGIC, THE UNWRITTEN) completes this compelling tale of ancient history, stolen dreams and lost children. This graphic novel also features ties to essential Vertigo titles such as Animal Man, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Black Orchid, and Books of Magic, as well as a new cover art by DEAD BOY DETECTIVES artist Mark Buckingham.
