Spidey must tussle with Sandman's multiple incarnations on Jones Beach!

    This book is a visual delight, as Sam Kieth has been given a story that plays to his strengths as an artist, with the moment where the various aspects of the Sandman merge together being a scene where one can't help but be impressed by the sheer oddity of the art. However, given how much I enjoyed the first chapter, I found this issue was a bit of a disappointment, as the book gets itself buried under a pointless attempt to explain the Sandman's psyche, while largely failing to realize the comedic potential of the premise. Now the book is certainly worth a look thanks to the Sam Kieth art, and Zeb Wells does deliver a pretty amusing little exchange in the back-seat of a cab. I'll also say that I was rather surprised to learn that the Sandman's good side was an empty illusion, but frankly I'm rather glad to see the Sandman back as a villain. Read Full Review
