Initially I was fairly skeptical about the omnibus editions. My initial reason for picking up the first volume was it is was tricky (and expensive) to source the stories individually.

However, I am really pleased with both this first volume and the second volume.

The print quality is fantastic and the the book is really substantial (a word of warning this isn't one for a commute the volumes are big and they are heavy). Others have said they are disappointed with the lack of bonus material but if you are looking for the stories in a really high quality and substantial format this is for you.

On the lookout for complete Sandman collections, I was undecided about buying the slip-cased paperback boxset or the premium Absolute editions, but then I realised that for less money (a LOT less in the case of the Absolutes) I could actually get these leather-bound omnibus beasts. I think it's safe to say that I made the right choice!

The two volumes are heavy but pleasingly so, both beautiful to look at and hold: genuinely admirable books that, content aside, are works of art in themselves. You'll really feel as though your money was spent on something substantial that will last, hopefully, for a lifetime.

The comics? Well, of course they're great. Enough said.

Get them before they sell out - or you'll regret it!

Beautifully coloured, printed, bound, finished. Stunning comic. Possibly my favourite artefact. Sit in a big chair and feel like you're reading the Sandman right.

For my other half who loves this series of comics, she thinks it's brilliant though finds it a little heavy to hold for long periods....not one for the morning commute read.

Brilliant edition of the comics - need a table to read it on though as it is a heavy tome. The requirement for a set number of words is bonkers
