#quotsyjune19 @TK-421 #grove “Trees there were, old as trees can be, huge and grasping with hearts black as sin. Strange trees that some said walked in the night.” Love his imagery, but the cover of this volume creeps me out!

BooknerdsLife Oh they are creepy! But I can‘t stop looking at them 😅 4w

...And if you do something stupid, what then?

It is sometimes a mistake to climb; it is always a mistake never even to make the attempt.

If you do not climb you will not fall. This is true. But is it that bad to fail, that hard to fail?

This end-of-2017 SANDMAN reread was a good frickin idea, y'all. I've had the very best time.

This sixth volume is another short story collection. I'd love to say something deep about it--maybe discuss how all the characters use dreams to shape their futures, or examine the foreshadowing, or talk about the chest from SEASON OF MISTS--but if you want the truth I mostly just wanna bask in the awesome. So I will. #comics

I'm SO glad trade prices have dropped since the late 90s and early 2000s. I couldn't afford to shell out $31 on a regular basis, so I had to read SANDMAN at a terrible, slow pace as I waited for gift cards or windfalls. I couldn't even turn to Amazon, since they rarely discounted the series and back then you had to spend $75 to get free shipping. And neither library collections nor digital comics were a thing yet.

Be grateful, newer readers!

xicanti As a side note, it looks like DC's trade prices are still higher than anyone else's. My most recent non-digital Marvel trade has a cover price of $17.99 CAD, while the Rebirth trades I've got out from the library are priced at $22.99 CAD. (edited) 2y
tournevis Good times... In French, books i from France n Canada are still in significantly more expensive than Quebec printed books as well as books in English. And 2y
tournevis ... so much moolah 2y

Lindy @tournevis Remember that period of time not so many years ago when the Canadian $ was worth more than the American $? My local indie bookstore acknowledged that by selling Canadian books for the (lower) American price, of the two printed on the cover. 2y
tournevis @Lindy Good times!!! 2y
xicanti @tournevis boo book prices. :( 2y
xicanti @Lindy my indie did that too! It was wonderful. 2y

I couldn't point you towards my favourite single issue of SANDMAN, but for my money "Ramadan" is the very prettiest of them all. It's drawn by P. Craig Russell and coloured by Digital Chameleon's Lovern Kindzierski. #comics

Knightingale Gaiman and Russell are a great team. I think my favorite was their work on “Stardust”. 2y

@bookriot #RiotGrams #October Challenge-#picturebookstack. Litsy's photo editor forced me to crop the photo , resulting in my favourite of the lot-Alison Bechdel's " The essential dykes to watch out for " getting croppped out of the frame !

Delighted with my purchases at Small World Books, not to mention proud of my restraint. Couldn't believe they had three of The Sandman volumes I was still missing! 🙂 #usedbooklove

"Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes when you fall, you fly."

One of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite series. Neil Gaiman has such a way of weaving myths, cultural histories, stories, and truths together.

"Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly."

My hobbies of reading and photography have a mutualistic relationship for me. Here's one of my photos which I've paired with a quote by Neil Gaiman. It just occurred to me that Litsy might be just the place for me to share these. I hope you enjoy them. #neilgaiman

I know it is shocking that I didn't immediately take to Sandman. For some reason I read a cousin's copy of "Fables" before anything else. It was a year or so before I re- started from the beginning. I love it more with every re-read. #changedmymindabout #fiestyfeb #day4 @RealLifeReading

JenP I read the first one and didn't like it all so gave up. Maybe I should keep reading 2y
RealLifeReading I'm rereading Sandman now. It's one of my favourite series! 2y
Seshat @JenP if you love mythology at all, give it another chance. 2y

The imagination of Neil Gaiman would seem to be limitless. I loved the story of Baghdad. The 'dog blanket' is keeping me warm, but not helping me to get ready for work 😫

This graphic novel made me fall in love with graphic novels. Gaiman is on some other level or creativity. #comicsandburritos

EliNeedsMoreShelves Gaiman's Sandman series is what made me give graphic novels a permanant spot in my reading life. So much more than the sum of their parts. 3y
SaturnDoo I'm sorry, but I just can't connect with Gaiman's lousy writing. His books jump on my last nerve lol. But I am glad you all got something satisfying out of them 😊 3y

#reallifeperson #reallifepersoninabook I decided it meant a fictionalized real person in a novel. I ended up going with a fictionalized real person in a graphic novel. I could have gone with Shakespeare but I went with Robespierre. #octphotochallenge #day21 @LibrarianRyan

Another excellent installment. That last story was a classic "be-careful-what-you-wish-for" story.

It's been a couple years since I put off reading the rest of the series. I'm not sure why. This is certainly the volume to pull me back in. Typical Sandman excellence.

Furny Big Gaiman fan here. I read through all the Sandmans before Xmas and really enjoyed them too!.x 3y
