The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes - Neil Gaiman
Hmmm...A Tale As Old As Me

I borrowed an electronic version from the library.

I've heard so many fantastic things about this series that I just had to try it out. I've read other of Gaiman's work but I'm not an invested fangirl by any means.

The foreword and afterwords were extremely helpful for context and understanding. I'm such a noob when it comes to comics. I've never read a comic as old as me.

I wasn't a fan of the art style, it does repulse and disgust as the story requires. That portion hasn't aged well IMHO.

As I was about the shrug the series off as historically important but not for my reading enjoyment, I was suddenly hooked.

Then it was an edge of my seat, heart racing intriguing tale. Now I'm looking forward to suffering through the gross art for what happens next.
