Stunning

Reviewed by on

Beautiful, beautiful presentation, with some of the most sensational artwork of the entire Sandman series. If you've read any of the other collected works in the Sandman universe, this is an absolute must. If you haven't, this will make you want to do so badly. Even though it basically ends where Sandman #1 begins, I found it more rewarding to read this volume after reading all 11 of the other Sandman graphic novels.

Having a brain is a prerequisite for reading anything Neil Gaiman. Getting this book is a no-brainer. Conundrum?
