Sandman


Well, I'll talk a little about one of my favorite books, Sandman.
First of all, it's a comic book that is about the seven sins, that are interpreted by people.
And the most impressive is that everything what happens at the book, stuff about the life of the other people who make part of it, happens to us.
And you start to see somethings what happens to you and to think about the sins, about what they do and how they act on you.

The book is, if not the first, on my top 3 and I think you certainly should read it.
It has 13 volumes, and you can't stop reading. You won't let you do it, before you start.

I love graphic novels and comic books. I still go to the shop every wednesday to pick up some new comics!

The endless aren't really the 7 sins, they're a pantheon of gods and goddesses that relate in this sort of existential manner. It's difficult to explain as there's a lot going on in Sandman in terms of what kind of message Gaiman's trying to get across to us. On one hand it's about the struggle the endless are having since Destruction left and abandoned his responsibility.

CERTAINLY one of the best comic books ever created. No doubt of that.

If I remember well the book of The Sandman: The Dream Hunters had Yoshitaka Amano as the illustrator. The same person behind Final Fantasy illustrations for some of their games.

I have to say you got some good taste with books. I will be following your blog.

I just read the story from ETA Hoffmann.

Oo, sounds really interesting. One of my favorite movies (se7en) is about the 7 deadly sins so this is right up my alley.

@Sub-Radar-Mike I've never watched this movie. But I'm downloading it now to see it.
It looks interesting because of the subject.
Thanks for the recommendation. :3

Neil Gaiman is awesome!

I never knew this was a comic, always thought it was just a really really old saying (having the Sandman put you to sleep).

I will definitely check this out.

I love Sandman, and pretty much anything Neil Gaiman writes. Did you know he studied under Alan Moore? (also one of the best comic book writers ever)
