Okay, look. Let’s just be honest with one another, right? The Absolute Edition of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, which reprints the first twenty issues of the series, looks positively badass. Not only is it ultrahuge, hardcover and slipcased, but it features new and improved coloring on the first eighteen issues (approved by Gaiman and the creative crew) plus bonus bits: for example, the script for “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the only comic story in history to win a World Fantasy Award. Or at least it was last time I checked, since they changed the rules to exclude comics shortly afterwards and I never heard if they ever changed them back. There’s also Vess’ original pencils for the issue and more.
Why am I telling you this?
Because you, like me, are going to break down and buy this. It’s just a fact. So why not buy it through the site and get us some kickbacks? You win, we win, everybody who’s important in this equation wins. Thankee.
