In 1993-94, DC published a series of 7 inter-related Vertigo annuals, titled Children's Crusade. The first installment, Children's Crusade #1, is credited "by Neil Gaiman and Chris Bachalo". The last, Children's Crusade #2, has sections written by Gaiman, Alisa Kwitney and Jamie Delano, with art by Peter Snejbjerg.
The five installments in between are Black Orchid Annual #1 (featuring Suzy, the baby BO), Animal Man Annual #1 (featuring Maxine, AM's daughter), Swamp Thing Annual #7 (featuring Tefe), Doom Patrol Annual #2 (featuring Dorothy), and Arcane Annual #1 (pre-Books of Magic series) featuring Tim Hunter.
The story revolves around a group of children gone missing in an alternate-dimension land called Free Country -- part Pied Piper, part JM Barrie Neverland -- and the efforts of the Vertigo kids to keep it from being destroyed. The tale also stars a pair of unlikely detectives: Edwin Paine and Charles Rowland, the two dead boys from Sandman #25.
