It’s been a long time since I’ve read a comic book (or graphic novel, as I think people now call them). I read them a lot as a kid, though, mostly religious themed ones. It was interesting to read from the perspective of a writer, as well. since it’s almost all short pieces of dialogue (with a handful of short pieces of narration). I had a little bit of trouble with some of the panels since I’m not used to reading sequences that aren’t mostly horizontal, but I got used to it.
The Sandman series is definitely not for kids, but I really enjoyed this first volume. The story was interesting, and I like the way Gaiman played with the archetypes presented. I’m looking forward to reading the next volume.
