This volume felt sadder than I was ready for, but I do like the idea of worlds existing inside each and every one of us.
APL Ruiz's resident authority on comics has called Watchmen "the Citizen Kane of graphic novels" and I agree it's a staggering achievement, but I now think The Sandman reaches farther and deeper.
Not as good as some of the volumes, but still recommend it for all Sandman fans! :)
I really liked the Colleen Doran artwork, especially the drawing down the moon bit.
Volume five collects together issues 32-37 of Sandman. "A Game of You" is another solid story put together by Gaiman. This issue is the earliest known to me that prominently features a transgender character. There is also a lesbian couple. The story doesn't belabour these traits, nor gloss over them; this is simply how the characters are. My only complaint was the horrible artwork of issue #34. Fortunately it did not distract from the story. Recommended reading.
While not my favorite in this series, it is a fabulous series. And like the first four volumes I find myself continuing to think and dream about it even days after I finished it.
The single best Sandman storyline ever. Shawn McManus did a brilliant job on the artwork as well.
