really liked it

so, this, of course, is the third in the Sandman series. this had a different flow and feel to it. i think it was because this graphic novel doesnt really follow the main character of the series. this is almost a book of side stories. it didnt have the brutally honest candor and dark undertones that the first two had. in that respect, i liked it better, since i could read it and not worry about debating within my own mind whether or not to continue on, reading such a dark novel. but the fact that all the comics were unrelated took a bit of the magic away. i wanted something more like a typical novel. i can read Calvin and Hobbes or Hagar the Horrible if i wanted a comic without story. one thing that i absolutely loved was the episode called Midsummer Night's Dream, which revoilved around Shakespears play. it was such an impressive comic, that i think that is the best comic that i've ever read. i can truthfully say that that was amazing. consquently, Gaiman won a fantasy award for that episode--which is the first and last comic to ever have been(and will be) nominated and won the award. they changed the rules after Gaiman won. i bet Terry Brooks pitched a hissy-fit and wanted his crappy novels to have no competition. oh jeez....

read this Sandman series. its great.
