3.5 Stars

I’m a bit cross with how I feel about this introduction to The Sandman. Gaiman’s portrayal of John Dee (Doctor Destiny) as a corrupt sadistic psychopath in Issue #6, “24 Hours” is a true horror. It’s going to take a while to get past the necessary evil...

That being said, I did like the rest of volume. I loved the portrayal of Morpheus (Dream/Sandman) as well as his sister, Death. Sometimes, I felt a bit too sober while reading. Other times, I just needed a break from how dark and heavy it became. I’m interested enough to continue with the series and find out how the story progresses.
