A quartet of fallen mystics dubbed the "TrenchCoat Brigade "is introduced in this first collection of the adventures of Timothy Hunter. John Constanine, the Phantom Stranger, Dr. Occult and Mister E take young Tim Hunter on a tour of the magical realms. Along the way he's introduced to Vertigo's greatest practitioners of magic and must choose whether or not to join their ranks.
This is the Gaiman original which inspired the ongoing series from DC. It takes in both the distant past and the far-flung future (fancy walking to the end of time?), realms of Earth, Faerie, Hell and others, along with cameos from a number of familiar faces, including Titania, Etrigan, Dream and the Deadman. Seriously good stuff - this was the face of youthful magic long before Harry Potter and features gorgeous artwork from John Bolton, Charles Vess, Paul Johnson, and Scott Hampton.
DC, paperback, 192 pages, published April 1993
