The Sandman - Comicbook

Postby The Ultimate » 25 Jun 2018, 21:14

Any body here read this comic book "The Sandman" (by Vertigo)? This is a great read, and you'll be hooked. Mature readership obviously.

This is a character from the series. Pretty fucked up if you ask me.

I'm currently on my dozenth or so read through. Sandman was my introduction to Gaiman's work and the reason I named my former longstanding band Morpheus. It is one of the best comics to happen. When you finish it, read Death: The High Cost Of Living & Death: The Time Of Your Life, Sandman: Endless Nights, and then Sandman Overture.

ooooh, I forgot all about that.

I bought the first issue when it ran, but was broke ass at the time and never kept on. I liked it. I think I need to look for a tpb and read that thing proper!

The Dreaming: Beyond the Shores of Night
Collects The Dreaming #1-8.

The Dreaming: Through the Gates of Horn and Ivory
Collects The Dreaming #15-19 and #22-25.

I think he's overseeing the whole project instead of writing for 4 books at the same time

well maybe if he didn't busy himself with all of this overseeing nonsense he'd have time to tackle four projects at once!

I am skeptical. I will reserve judgement. Overseeing says to me that it won't be a fuck all shitfest, but it also won't be Gaiman level writing.
