As to the actual contents, this edition contains my all-time favorite Sandman story arc with Season of Mists but it also contains my least favorite A Game of You. Gaiman's writing is top-notch for the series as ever but there simply isn't enough new information contained herein.
I'd recommend these annotated editions for die-hard fans only who are already familiar with the story. I myself am buying these simply so I don't wear out my Absolutes. I'd recommend the Absolute editions over this any day of the week if you have the money as they're oversized in full color and contain extra content such as scripts and whatnot. Or if you wish to wait it appears there are Sandman Omnibus editions coming out as well. Keep in mind these annotated editions are in black and white only.
All in all four stars for the story arcs and zero for the actual annotations - I guess that averages out to two stars overall, barely. Just a sloppy annotation job again overall, sadly. The Sandman series, still to date my favorite comic series ever, deserves far better than this.
