Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1
Neil Gaiman
DC/Vertigo
The much-adored Neil Gaiman-penned series has never been out of print and is still available in a variety of smaller, less fetching collections, but they just won’t impress like this Absolute edition. The first of a four-volume series of oversized reprints each in a slip-cased hardcover, this “box set” holds the series’ first 20 issues. The big draw for collectors is the recolouring on issues one to 18, and extras include the script for the award-winning take on A Midsummer’s Night Dream. For everyone else with spare coin and space on the bookshelf who haven’t read Sandman, now is the time to sleep with the Dream King.
