It really *doesn't* get any better than this,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sandman: The Kindly Ones (Paperback)
We all know how wonderful "Sandman" is (was). And "The Kindly Ones" is the climax of it - but, more importantly, it's also the apex of brilliance. It's long. It's epic. It's moving. It's filled to the brim with superb characters (of course, all of "Sandman" is, but "The Kindly Ones" manages to get almost everyone in there). You will laugh, and you will cry. Often. Every single line is quotable, and most are brilliant even out of context. The art, so unconventional, fits it perfectly, giving the best interpretations ever of most of the characters that appear. While the rest of "Sandman" could, at a pinch, be described as some of the first comics work (behind anything with the name "Alan Moore" on the front) to be held as literature, "The Kindly Ones" really is a work of epic, literary genius that will stand up in years to come.
