The Sandman, Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes (The Sandman, #1)

The Sandman, Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes (The Sandman, #1) - Neil Gaiman, Malcolm Jones III, Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg I gave this 3 stars today with the full knowledge that I very well might come back and add another one later - because it isn't the book itself that held me back. This was my very first foray into the world of graphic novels and comic books, and while this book was beautiful, it left me feeling like I should have taken a crash course in DC characters before reading it. It left me feeling a bit lost on more than one occasion. "Wait, who is that? Have I heard of them before? Is this the same guy from a few pages ago? I think it's the same guy. Who is he, again?"

If/when I get around to reading more in the series, I might retroactively like this one more. But for now, it is what it is.
