THE SANDMAN, written by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, THE SANDMAN is also widely considered one of the most original and artistically ambitious series of the modern age. By the time it concluded in 1996, it had made significant contributions to the artistic maturity of comic books and become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right. Now, DC Comics is proud to present this comics classic in an all-new Absolute Edition format. The first of four beautifully designed slipcased volumes, THE ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOL. 1 collects issues 1-20 of The Sandman and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, on the first 18 issues, as well as a host of never-before-seen extra material, including the complete original Sandman Proposal, a gallery of character designs from Gaiman and the artists who originated the look of the Sandman, and the original script to the World Fantasy Award-winning THE SANDMAN #19, "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," together with reproductions of the issue’s original pencils by Charles Vess. Also included are a new introduction by DC’s president Paul Levitz and a new afterword by Gaiman.

Yeah, I know Gaiman is God and Sandman is his avatar. Still didn't like it. Sorry.

This book is a beautiful bound tome with gorgeous art and some wonderful stories. Content-wise, I could tell that Neil Gaiman was experimenting when he began writing this now-famous series. The quality of the story is a bit uneven. Some of the novels were amongst some of the best graphic novels I ha...

It's been more than ten years since I first read Sandman, and I've read it through probably close to a dozen times since. This is my first crack at The Absolute Sandman. Obviously, I love Sandman, or I wouldn't be reading it yet again. And yet, I never read exactly the same Sandman twice. I see more...

4.0 The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1
This is an absolute must-have-and-read for anyone who is keen on graphic novels. The paper is really classic, if you like comic books this is an ultimate buyer and keeper. Nice stuff and high four stars.

When I first started reading Sandman, which was after I was introduced to Neil Gaiman through American Gods and Stardust, I had to interlibrary loan each volume, meaning (since I wanted to be able to keep track of them and ensure the loaning library got the books back in a timely fashion) I had to w...
