I really enjoyed it, devouring the stories within in two sittings. It lives up to its reputation as one of the ground-breaking comics serials of the 1980s, along with stuff by Alan Moore and Frank Miller. Geiman's imagination and intellect are wide-ranging, unafraid to horrify the readers, because they always do so in a shockingly poetic, pretty way. The artists whose work illustrates Gaiman's prose don't hurt either.
