Significant slice of Delano/Piers Rayner Hellblazer sneaked into Sandman Ep3, even using Delano’s Casanova/Newcastle wordplay to set it up. Maybe there was an acknowledgment further down the credits than I sat through but, still, felt a little… dodgy.

Still enjoying the series overall, but that bit…  I dunno.

Delano was credited, and you appear to have more reservations than Delano himself does, if twitter thread is anything to judge.

Piers Rayner also got a credit.  In fact, Richard posted a screengrab of the credits for that episode - present were Stephen Bissette, Mike Carey, Steve Dillon, Garnder F. Fox, John Ridgway, John Totleben, Len Wein, Chris Brunner, Jamie Delano, Garth Ennis, Richard Piers Rayner, Mike Sekowsky, Rick Veitch and Bernie Wrightson.

Thanks for putting me on to this. A really good little show - and quite moving to see Ray Liotta one last time.

Sorry, Insurrection.  It was good and all but there's nothing like Nemesis.

Just finished it and absolutely loved it, having never read the comic I didn’t have any pre conceived ideas, loved episode six with death and the end credit offers hope of a second series

I enjoyed that write-up! I'm surprised the army still exists in that post-apocalypse America.

I finally finished Usurper! today. I managed to beat the demons by deliberately losing (with the help of punches and lucky dice rolls) the first two attack rounds against the first demon, to avoid losing the endurance points you lose if you hit him, and then managing to win two rounds against the second demon, without taking the health potion until the other two demons show up. Then I managed to beat the second demon (while the knight fought the newcomers), and somehow didn't lose any endurance in that fight. Then I noticed a loophole when fighting the Usurper again: if you didn't hit him earlier, the book doesn't tell you that if you hit him you only cause half damage! So I was able to legitimately inflict normal damage, which I doubled with Inner Force and finally dispatched him!

After that there are no more decisions to make. The knight leaves, and I go to the roof of the palace to take down the Usurper's flag, the signal for the revolution to start. Since I successfully recruited the peasants, the shieldmaidens, and apparently even the untrustworthy merchant (he has some mercenaries), the Revolution is successful. Even my 100 samurai all show up! It turns out that they only survive if you send them via Doomover, not Tor! I am crowned Overlord of Irsmuncast!

I have ordered the fourth book!
