    At any rate, don't make the same mistake I did when the title first began. Pick up The Sandman: The Dream Hunters while you can. Read Full Review

    In the afterword to this first issue of "Sandman: The Dream Hunters," Gaiman talks about the sequence of events that both created the original novella as well as this comic adaptation. At the end, he comments that it feels to him like he's getting to read a new "Sandman" comic for the first time. I completely understand; Russell's able to do just that with his adaptations, preserving the original feel while somehow making everything fresh and exciting. I, for one, can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review
