Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes: 1 - Neil Gaiman
Advantages: Gaiman at his best
Disadvantages: Has to end
In the first collection of Neil Gaiman's acclaimed Sandman comic, we quite possibly find his best work. We are treated to one of the most detailed and vibrantly fantastical worlds ever to have been seen in comic books. In fact the second half reads as if it is a much better version of Milton's Paradise Lost (yes, I'm a philistine). The artwork does not limit the imagination, it simply fuels it.
Gaiman and artists Kieth, Dringenberg and Jones have fleshed out a universe so teeming with life that upon reading Preludes and Nocturnes, you will have no doubt that there is enough to cover in the next ten collections.
And in Dream, with his dead expressionless eyes - we have a character that will remembered among the best comic book creations of the last twenty-five years.
Read it, get lost in it and dream on, because Sandman is a comic book series that is definitely worth your time.
Summary: The inception of one of the best comic book series' of all time
