I read them all. They only get better after the first. And much much much much more weird.

I have always said, and will continue to say, that this series is the pinnacle of what Western Sequential Art is capable of.

Right here.

Now, that may just be (partly) my fan-boy-ness for Neil, but not really.

Watchmen, as amazing as it was, examined one genre, and deconstructed and analysed the classic superhero comic.

This series goes after everything.

From the Justice League to The Bible to Shakespeare to it's own damn thing.

This series is stunning in its scope, depth, and beauty.

Basically, read it, and then suggest it to all of your friends.

They'd probably try to turn Morpheus into your standard superhero. Something I can already tell he is not.

Screw cinematographic adaptations.

Animated adaptations is where is at, baby! Just imagine... a The Sandman adaptation written by the combined forces of Greg Weisman and Neil Gaiman himself, it would be awesome!

There was talk of a Sandman film once. One executive wanted to insert a fight with a giant mechanical spider.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

I once read a script for a Sandman movie. But I don't remember much of anything about it.

I could actually see it as an HBO series. In theory, it could work. In practice, though, still best left alone.

[up] I'm inclined to agree.

Did anyone read Jill Thompson's Sandman-based manga? Those were adorable and well-written!

No, it should be made into an Anime. By Studio SHAFT.

Either SHAFT, Gainax, or Trigger.

Nah, Trigger doesn't seem the type. I could see Gainax pulling it off, though.

Yo wa Yume no Ou de aru. Would he speak in Archaic? Or in Keigo? Or something else entirely? What would his Japanese Grammar look like?

This comic (as you might deduce from my avatar) quite honestly just might be my favorite physical object, thing, entity, mind-construct, idea, concept and combination of words and images for the expressed purpose of forming a cohesive narrative in all of history, the totality of existence and all potential multiverses. My single-minded obsession with it can at times reach Captain Ahab levels of monomania. Ironically, I haven't been able to finish it (reached volume 9: The Kindly Ones) because I simply don't want something this unique, complex, thought-provoking, multifaceted and just downright weird to end, like ever; though I have to confess that generally being the case for most good fiction I consume. Even more ironic is that one of the central themes of this work is the inevitability of change and how everything that has a beginning also has an end, which is something I find deeply frightening and at the same time uplifting. This seems more palpable than ever in this rapidly changing world of shifting allegiances, technological progress, mutlipolarization of political power and grown men finally being able to enjoy cartoons about candy-colored, talking, magical, miniature equines with relative impunity.

Ah, but it doesn't end. Nothing ever does. The only thing that dies, is a point of view.

Doctor Destiny is one disturbing S.O.B.

Anyone who thinks this is filmable ought to read Issue 6, "24 Hours."

Question: Death says that she will still exist after the universe ends. But if it ends, doesn't that mean nothing will live and die and the concept of death won't exist anymore, so it should undo her? Or is it possible that she's sticking around because another universe is going to exist again, which has been implied to have happened in the past and possibly future

She's described what will happen by saying something like "I'll put the chairs on the tables and lock the door as I leave" or something like that. When the universe is done, then the only thing left to die will be Death herself. So yeah, I expect the end of the universe would undo her. A new universe would likely call for a new Endless.
