5.0 out of 5 stars ah ma zing!! March 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Neil is one of my most favorite authors, The Sandman was one of his earliest creations, and still one of the best. The art in the new series is simply stunning. Taking great elements of the originals and bringing new beauty to the page. I literally have 3 copies of the first comic and can't wait to pick up my physical copy of this one.

I do think it best to have read the original series, but I think even a first time visitor to The Sandman can appreciate and enjoy the story!

Seriously. Buy it.

Beautiful book, but at least on my iPad the page order is wrong. I hope a fix is in the works.

Read this issue on Kindle for Android Tablet, and it is infuriating. The app is slow and the Kindle format is terribly unsuitable for reading comics, or at least this comic book.

The artwork here is amazing because the artist does not conform to the conventional panel style. However, readers will not be able to appreciate his work to its fullest as the Kindle app is quite rigid and does not allow for smooth zooming and panning across the pages. This diminishes enjoyment, especially when viewing double page spreads.

Another irritant is the awkward nagivation controls, which are unhelpful when switching from portrait to landscape and vice versa, which in turn is a problem when jumping from a single page to a double spread.

Amazon is not doing this fantastic series any justice by presenting it so poorly. As noted by other reviewers, it even got a couple of pages out of sequence and had not bothered to fix it. Fans of this series are better off buying the e-comic from other sellers like Comixology, which has a better reader app that I am currently using to continue enjoying this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I"m enjoying the return of the Sandman! June 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So far, these Sandman stories are great! I feel they successfully recapture the eerie feelings that made me fall in love with the original Sandman! Can't wait for the next installment! I just wish I could enlarge some of the images on my Kindle Fire!

4.0 out of 5 stars The story picks up steam and depth May 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Creating a good and solid prequel that is a story on its own, while still communicating with the vast existing story volume of the first series is not a light hearted job. But Gaiman does not disappoint yet.

Playful but true to the existing style, he uses old and new characters to narrate a well flowing story.

This is a comic book and the picture artist needs a mention: The pictures are big, detailed and offer so much to see. Even on reading a second, third... time

Compelling and disturbing at the same time, only Gaiman could produce this graphic novel. The art work is amazing and compliments this collectible edition.

I am an avid Sandman reader; I had no idea what t expect since this prequel has been released quite some time from the originals. All I have to say is, READ IT, YOU WILL LOVE IT :D. This includes every moving illustration as well.!!

More About the Author

I make things up and write them down. Which takes us from comics (like SANDMAN) to novels (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies (like Dave McKean's MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or my own short film A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).

In my spare time I read and sleep and eat and try to keep the blog at more or less up to date.
