Perfection. ( )

Bammm! Finally. Yeah, a lot of threads, and I definitely did not follow every single one. But yeah, it's fun. ( )

Wow! I loved this volume. Definitely one of the best. It was very sad, but also expected. This series has really, really changed my mind on comics. I used to have no interest in them whatsoever, but this series has really made me rethink that. You CAN have good literature in comics...they're not all for pimple-faced teenage boys. This series is a joy. ( )

I had problems following this in parts because it harks back to and ties up some of the very early episodes which I don't really remember much of. ( )

This is by far the most fucked-up sandman volume I've ever read. I don't even know how to rate it. Seriously. I think I'll try again later, it's late and it's time for me to dream.
