First volume is pretty good, it actually encourages you to keep reading the next volumes... it's a 75 issue long divided into 10 volumes with linked characters and stories, so now i'm reading vol.10 and trying to remember what the hell did this character do or what are these guys talking about, and that is a constant problem i face with sandman, another is that i feel puzzled each time i read it, that i am missing something maybe it's a problem with me ... i came to be certain that sandman is overrated though the world Gaiman created is really interesting it'd be unfair to ignore it.
