2008: 101. Absolute Sandman, Volume III

“It was getting late, and I was losing it fast.  There was an old movie on TV, but I was too tired and too nervous to concentrate properly.”

Absolute Sandman, Volume III, Neil Gaiman et al.

So, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book since, oh, January 13th, when I finished Volume II, and now I am eagerly waiting for Volume IV (I am probably the only person on earth who is reading these for the first time in the expensive* “absolute” versions, but I’ve already explained that weirdo quirk).  Because these are so, so, good.  Like, everyone should read them, and why haven’t you.  Although, really, everyone who reads graphic novels has, so, I guess what I’m saying is, I am glad I am reading them.  In this volume, we get the end of the Orpheus story (and Morpheus’s resolution with his long estranged son - or what’s left of him), and Delirium traveling with Dream to find their lost brother, Destruction, who has decided to be an immortal no longer.  But it isn’t really the sort of book you can describe - just the sort to say that if you haven’t given graphic novels a chance, try these, because they are phenomenal.**

Though, you can almost always get them for less than the list price on the internet! I save $40 on this one!!

** Seriously, as good as his novels are, this is a whole different ball game.
