    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    This is just a pure delight to read, and the comic lives up to the warm memory of the original title. Gaiman and Russell haven’t lost a step (of course, Gaiman wrote this 10 years ago, so perhaps he’s cheating a bit). We can only wish the Sandman could show up more often than once a decade.

    At any rate, don’t make the same mistake I did when the title first began. Pick up The Sandman: The Dream Hunters while you can.

    So if Russell’s script holds up to the source material, the art falls a bit flat in comparison. I’m happy if this comic influences readers to experience this relatively lesser-known area of the Sandman mythos. In my opinion, however, this isn’t the best way to experience it.
