Happy! Grant Morrison
Happy! - Darick Robertson,Grant Morrison

The kernal of a great idea resides here - that kernal germinated into the TV programme of the same name, which I watched before reading this. In that medium there was enough time to develop the ideas, characters and plot into a compelling story - one with a sense of humour not likely to appeal to all - but unique, original and insane. Here, everything is too compressed  - no room to breathe. It needed a longer run, in other words.

The Absolute Sandman, Volume IV, Neil Gaiman
The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 4 - Neil Gaiman,Jon J. Muth,Dean Ormston,Glyn Dillon,Marc Hempel,Teddy Kristiansen,Kevin Nowlan,Richard Case,Daniel Vozzo,D'Israeli,Todd Klein,Michael Zulli,Dave McKean,Charles Vess

The fourth Absolute Sandman volume completes the main story arc of the series, combining disparate elements and characters to produce a finale that I did not expect at all at the beginning. Initially I struggled with not being able to discern how anything related to anything else but the second half ravels everything up neatly.

Why, at any given time, can I only ever name six of the seven Endless?

OK, now I'm fully engaged again, having figured out how all the disparate parts fit together.
