5.0 out of 5 stars a worthy conclusion to a great series 16 Dec 2008
By William R. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Vol 4 is a very much a worthy conclusion to the Sandman series. It does an amazing job of bringing together all of the many (many) disparate threads into a single resolution that is totally and completely satisfying. While some may not like the simple art style featured in "The Kindly Ones," you'd be hard pressed not to admit that the art for "The Wake" looks beautiful and sets the tone perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth its weight in gold 30 Aug 2009
By Lucas Sapucahy Coppio - Published on Amazon.com
The Sandman is one of the greatest comic series ever writen and this compilation, Sandman Absolute vol 1, 2, 3 and 4 have the quality that this piece of art deserves!

Awesome finishing, all the extras and comments, the box and hardcover are flawless!

This is a must have for any comic addicted and is the best "graphical novel" writen by Neil G. that you may ever find on earth!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaiman shines 16 Dec 2008
By J. Mentzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As is the case with the first three volumes, this over-sized, expensive book is more than worth the purchase price. Unlike many of DC's hardcover volumes, the quality of the Absolute editions is impeccable.

As for the material itself, it's Neil Gaiman. What more is there to say?
5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this for my wife 12 Jun 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Great edition... 15 May 2014
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sandman itself has been reviewed multiple times, so I'll just talk about the book itself.

This is an amazing edition. The book is large and pretty hefty, so make sure you have room for it before you order! The box sleeves the book comes in is covered in awesome art book that is also reflected on the book cover itself. I love how thick the pages are. The extras and forwards are a big plus to collectors. While you could purchase the Omnibus for less than the collective price of these five books, I would recommend these. Better material, more extras, and all around better display. Truly the absolute version of The Sandman!
