The Sandman

[ #9539 ]
I stopped by at the local comic shop, which is just half a block from where I live. I haven't bought a comic in quite a long time because most of them are childish crap. However, Neil Gaiman's The Sandman was definitely a standout. It should really be considered an illustrated story, rather than a comic book - it's definitely for adults and very well written.

So, I bought Volume 1 (Preludes & Nocturnes), which is a collection of #1-10. It also comes with a nifty little cdrom. I never actually finished reading the series - I think I quit somewhere around #20, so this will be a good refresher as well as new territory for me once I get into some of the later ones.

I actually had a chance to buy #1 when it came out way back when. Silly me. Oh, well. I just want it for the story anyway. :)

  • Damnit. There was no cdrom when I bought it a few years ago. Anything interesting on it?

    • I haven't actually looked at it yet, but the guy at the store said it's just DC Comics promotional stuff, a catalogue, etc.
  • Is on my "to read" list, alongside Alan Moore's "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". Hopefully Jenine has bought one or t'other of those for me for Christmas :-)
