A New York Times Bestseller! The Sandman is the universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming--a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who's ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus' realm--be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons. Upon his escape from an embarrassing captivity at the hands of a mere mortal, Morpheus finds himself at a crossroads, forced to deal with the enormous changes within both himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in a world that's drastically changed takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his old heirlooms, the back roads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself--to receive the dubious honor of picking the next Devil. But he'll learn his greatest lessons at the hands of his own family, the Endless, who--like him--are walking embodiments of the most influential aspects of existence. This massive hardcover tome, over 1000 pages, collects the first 37 issues of Neil Gaiman's groundbreaking series!… (more)

The amount of varying "level" of the Sandman library get another collection to add to the previous Absolute and Annotated editions. Though I kind of get why there are three levels for collecting this series (even though I disapprove of them having so many options); each gives us a slightly different taste and are clearly marketed at different demographics. The Absolute editions are for the serious collectors, since they have lots of bonus material and are much larger in format, while the Annotated editions are for the academics, with their b&w artwork and focus on commentary. The Omnibus editions seem to be for the average collector. who wants something fancier than the graphic novels without the pricetag of the Absolute editions. Simply the comics collected in stunning full colour and with the added benefit of a reinforced (and nicer looking) binding. ( )

Neil Gaiman does not disappoint with The Sandman. This is my absolute favourite graphic novel and this edition is as stunning as it is heavy. ( )

Don't need to read the Omnibus. I was there for the complete original series. Thank goodness DC Comics is bringing the series back to relaunch the all new Vertigo ( )
  Eternal.Optimist | Aug 22, 2018 |
A stunning accomplishment in every way. The way Gaiman seamlessly weaves an immense universe out of single issue increments across a span of several years is nothing short of awe-inspiring, with the tiniest supporting characters and notions inevitably coming back to play parts small and huge several years later. Engrossing, imaginative, epic and heartfelt, and somehow still evergreen and fresh even thirty years later. ( )
  Lucky-Loki | Mar 29, 2018 |
Basically, Neil Gaiman can do no wrong, but as famous as his work on the Sandman series is, I still think it's inferior to his purely written work. I missed the author's lush descriptions and unique authorial voice in the graphic novel format. It was good, but not quite "American Gods" good. ( )
