A vert cool little collection of tales of one of my favorite villains. What does it matter if he is made of sand and somehow still a conscious person? A great TPB, but to truly be called the SAGA of the Sandman, I would like to see FF62-63 & 94, Hulk 113-114 & 139, and ASM 217-218 (if not some others) as well as those in this collection. Marvel - make it happen! Bundle 'me up and charge too much and you'll sell millions of 'em! ...more

He's often described in the books as being composed of what is indistinguishable from regular sand or rock. But how is conscious control exercised over his changeable body parts? How can he turn himself into a cloud ...more

A random stroll through the story of Marvel's Sandman, who is essentially a Spider-Man villain. It wasn't as thorough as I hoped but I suppose it was a cash-in for the third Spider-Man film.

It demonstrates the limitation of sharing villains between a large number of super-hero comics that are being produced simultaneously. No consistent saga is contained although a costume change, due to Sandman "brushing up on his science" due to a friend (the Wizard) that we never see him with, is respected un

A bit tedious, but better than the past few marvel books I've read.
