Recommends it for: Fans of the "Sandman" series!
6 stars!

“In a fairy tale story, once all the children are asleep, the Sandman will come in and sprinkle magic dust in children’s eyes and give them sweet dreams.”

At least, that is the interpretation we get about the Sandman. However, in this graphic novel, we are about to enter a world where the Sandman is a magical being of the Dream world, but the world of the Sandman is much darker and more disturbing than you can ever imagine! “The Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes” is a comic series writt

I'm a pretty huge Gaiman fan, but had never experienced his graphic novel work for DC Comics that put him on the map back in the late 80's and early 90s. So, I figured it was about time to check out the epic "The Sandman," which is now packaged so nicely into 10 collective volumes. This first volume has great info in the forward and afterward sections, and contains the 1st 8 issues of the comic book series... or the first complete story arc for the main character, "Dream," or "Lord of Dreams."

A great set up for the series. But, it is a rocky start as Gaiman explains in his afterword. This was a new medium to him. This is a great start for the lexicon. My favorite of this collection was "The Sound of her Wings."

I'd forgotten how much I truly loved Sandman. Re-reading it, several years after the first reading, only solidified that point.

I think that Sandman, more than any other endeavor, is the best indication of the depth of Gaiman's imagination. His books are fabulous, but Sandman gives a much bolder idea, maybe due to the amount of collaboration needed, of what he's capable of as a writer and thinker.

I read this one a long, long time ago...and I vaguely remember loving it. I would like to buy all the TPB collection eventually and read/reread them.
