did not like it
bookshelves: graphic-novels, reviewed

My god, the cover alone near put me in saccharine shock. This book is so appallingly cutesy I'm ashamed to see it associated with Sandman, and the artwork is as twee as the plot.

Profoundly un-recommended to any Sandman fan.

Extremely tentatively recommended as shared-reading material between pre-literate children and parents who for some inexplicable reason wish to destroy the likelihood of the child ever enjoying Sandman proper and/or warp developing conceptions toward Shoujo-style manga.

Please note that Dead Boy Detectives is not the same work as Sandman Presents: Dead Boy Detectives. #LFMF
