Neil Gaiman Returns to Sandman
If you read through Sandman, there are bits and pieces of stories yet to be told. Sometimes characters refer to events from decades, even centuries past that are never revisited. Sometimes the narration hints at things that remain mysteries. And honestly, I was okay with not knowing. I don’t feel like Sandman is diminished with these loose threads left around. If anything, it kind of adds to the world of the books.
That said, I’m glad it’s Gaiman himself coming back to tell the tale of what came before Book 1. If it was anyone else, I don’t think I’d be able to contain my anger. Also, JH Williams is a phenomenal illustrator. Fuck, just look at this teaser image:
Can you imagine and entire book of this stuff? This is a comic’s dream team. So very looking forward to this next year!
