I am in the middle of a reread (when the caped crusader doesn't interfere)... I am on The Hunt right now. I love it, and it's gets better every time I read it (the series that is)

Eh. I have a couple of Gaiman's short stories adapted by Russell but Dream Hunters works so well as is I never saw the need.

I don't know if you consider the library system too socialistic, but if you live in a bigger state you can use inter-library loan to read tons of trades. Most big cities have libraries with decent collections now. I've read tons of good shit over the past few years at zero cost to myself.


That's what I love about libraries.

I read Endless Nights...

It was OK, I loved the Death and Dream chapters, but the rest of them were kind of slight. The artwork was amazing throughout though, it was weird seeing Glenn Fabry do interiors. Frank Quitely's 8-pager was beautiful.

I've now bought the Death Deluxe HC and the new Lucifer Volume 1, so I'm pretty much all caught up with the stuff worth reading, just need to get the Lucifer trades as they come out.

I loved the Delirium story, gorgeous art and a great way of telling the story. Also I like as much Matthew as possible in stuff.

The second Lucifer volume was solicited last month.

I read the Death stories last night.

I really enjoyed 'High Cost Of Living', it was just a lot of fun and you can really see why it was closer to becoming a movie than Sandman itself, it would make for a great movie. The only issue would be that Death is kind of the original 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl' and later stories with that archetype have ruined things and people would probably hate her now. Chris Bachalo's art was excellent, it's weird seeing how much his style has changed and evolved over the years.

'Time Of Your Life' was OK, not as good because I never really cared about Hazel and Foxglove. It felt like the most 90s comic ever too, unlike the rest of Gaiman's work, it did feel dated. The best thing about it was that one of Foxglove's songs was called 'George's Tongue', a great reference to Game Of You.

The other short stories in there were OK, I thought the safe-sex one was hilarious.

Next up for me in the Sandman-verse... Lucifer Volume 1... but I think I'm going to read some prose novels first.

When I read 'Time Of Your Life' I had no idea who Hazel and Foxglove were. But the whole lesbian romance thing instanty grabbed my attention. And before I knew it I was deeply in love with those two girls.

'High Cost Of Living' is great too. I felt quite identified with the depressive teenager who considers suicide as an option.

Sexton was a dick, but that was the point.

Well, obviously I didn't feel identified with him because he was considered a dick.

By the way, did I already mention how much I loved Chris Bachalo's art in these minis? I don't know why he has changed his style so much nowadays.
