Thoughts on a Re-Read Six Years Later

Oh, welcome to Sandman, everyone. A massive improvement over the first volume as Neil Gaiman shows what he really wants to do with this series. So many important characters introduced! Desire, Despair, Rose Walker, Matthew, Hector and Lyta Hall, the Corinthian, Hob Gadling, Fiddler's Green, just to name a few. The series is definitely coming into its own. And what an amazing piece of work it's already shaping up to be. Everything is epic and connected, spanning centuries and eons. And I love the worldview being presented here, just the way the Endless and the living interact, how the anthropomorphic characters really do represent facets of humanity, and thus Gaiman manages to say a lot of interesting things without actually saying them. Sandman is like nothing I've ever read...except Sandman, six years ago.
