I was totally entranced by the first of the four volumes of the complete Sandman series. I had read a very little bit in high school and I had no idea how dark it could get. I almost had to stop after a particular scene in a "living" house, and again at "24" and then at the serial killers' convention. In the interest of full disclosure, I am not terribly well-read in comics. A comic book aritst fried of mine has beef with Gaiman for being too verbal, to the point that the illustrations are superfluous -- but maybe that's what made it easy for someone like me to really get into it: I am a reader. The art was always going to just be extra to me anyway. Hopefully this won't always be the case, and I'll learn how to critique comics and graphic novels :) meanwhile, I was quite well-diverted.
