And so it begins! The nine volume Sandman set that has patiently been waiting on my shelves for a few years. Since I want to get in front of the show and its casting and its vague 2022 date, I thought I should start. And it's a great start. So many fun minor characters - I like that Constantine makes an appearance. And I will say right now, everything Dave McKean does, I am a fan of! And this wouldn't be Sandman without his inspired covers. Amazing every dang time. ( )

After being trapped for around 70 years from the results of a failed ritual to summon and take control over Death, Dream must recover his three artifacts that were stolen in the duration of the time period. As he goes around the land attempting to find these items, he witnesses the horrors that have affected the world during his time away. ( )

With all the good things I've heard about this comic series, and having had them sit on my shelf for the last few years, I figured it was time to sit down and read them.

I don't have much experience with comics or graphic novels, having only read The Walking Dead and The Watchmen previously, and I didn't really get into the superhero shtick until Marvel started popping out all of their movies, and even then, it wasn't until just recently that I've really started to appreciate the nuances of superheroes and villains. The Walking Dead wasn't bad, but having seen the show first, it didn't really do it for me. The Watchmen though, that hit the spot. Dark, real, full of superheroes as they would be in the world today, just people trying to do their best, it was my favorite (albeit only) graphic novel that I'd ever read. Until now.

Preludes & Nocturnes blew past The Watchmen and ignited into my soul as a forever lingering flame of life. As Patrick Rothfuss said, it lit me up inside. It's wild, it's weird, it's dark, and sometimes (oftentimes) confusing, forcing you to read just a little further until that light bulb goes off and the sun appears from behind the clouds to bless you, the reader, with clarity and understanding.

This volume introduces the characters, the world, and has a nice plot that bends and weaves around until you've got yourself questioning your sanity. The lines of reality cross into the realms of the underworld and dreamworld, and it's all thoroughly enjoyable. I've always been a fan of Gaiman's work, particularly the novels, but I can now say that the Sandman is my all-time favorite character that he's ever created. Dreams is dynamic and compelling, and so much more human than I was expecting.

And then there's the art itself. Expertly done, it's dark and gritty, both real and surreal at the same time. Like The Watchmen, different styles lend a hand in portraying the scene being conveyed, whether that be through subtle text changes or panel art. I was surprised and even a bit squeamish at how gory some of the scenes were, but it only added to the tension and undertones of the plot.

All in all, I'm sad that I waited so long to start this series, but so grateful that I finally did. Highly recommend. ( )

The Sandman by Neil Gaiman
The Sandman by Neil Gaiman is one I jumped at the chance to listen to partly because it is Neil Gaiman and partly because of the full cast. I am not a fan of graphic novels, so I knew this would be the only way I would get to experience Mr. Gaiman’s Sandman series. I don’t regret the decision, even though I will admit that I did not enjoy it as much as I hoped I would.

The cast is amazing. Kat Dennings as Death is spectacular. She portrays A level of compassion that you do not expect in any personification of Death. James McAvoy has a great voice, but I found it to be a bit too deep for my ears. I struggled to understand his dialogue without turning up the volume each time he spoke. The rest of the cast is just as amazing, even if I think they didn’t utilize Michael Sheen to his fullest.

My problem with The Sandman is that I am not a fan of the individual chapters or acts. Just as I was getting into the storyline, the act would end. The next act began with a different narrator, a different setting, or even a different storyline. I much prefer my stories to have more depth to them and to follow a smoother path.

However, if you like short stories or even graphic novels, then I believe this audiobook production works quite well. The cast makes it easy to discern the characters, and the acts follow the graphic novel episodes. For me, had this been one long novel, I would enjoy it more than I did. ( )

DNF. This rating is for the audiobook on Audible. I couldn’t finish this; it was unlistenable; the noise/sound effects seemed to be filler for the substance this work was lacking. And the level of writing was like that of a 10th grader turning in a lackluster project, a far cry from JRRT, GRRM, GGK, R Hobb, Rothfuss, Sanderson, P Brown, R J Bennett and others.

Maybe the graphic book is a different experience.

And it wasn’t an issue with Gaiman narrating the audiobook; I’d listened to him read his Norse Mythology and loved that. ( )
