Zero requested it, and here it is! A thread to discuss Neil Gaiman's The Sandman and all it's various nooks and crannies and spin-off series.
I just finished 'The Wake' tonight, and found it a very good, touching ending, although I think maybe the order of the stories should have been switched. You have this amazing 3-part story which wraps things up... but then there's 3 more issues to go, and whilst they are all epilogues in their own way, they felt a bit tacked on, especially the Shakespeare one. But it doesn't matter really.
I put off reading Sandman for so long, but I'm so glad I finally got around to it, it's a wonderful story, and it's unique in the group of 'big acclaimed comics' in that it's not just one big epic, but an epic that's made up of a lot of beautiful smaller pieces.
I guess I'll have to read Endless Nights now.
And then The Dream Hunters
And then Death
And then Lucifer
And then when it comes out, Overture
OH yeah, and who did hire Loki and Puck?
