Absolute Sandman written by Neil Galman and Illustrated by Sam Keith, et al. (D.C. / Vertigo)

Not much more needs to be said about Neil Gaiman's exceptionally literate Sandman series, featuring the lord of the Dream world. Lauded as one of the pinnacles of mainstream comics since its first arrival in the late 1980s until its end in the 90s, the collected series has remained permanently in print. This latest version trumps all others in its luxurious large size, its re-colored pages, bonus materials and handsome binding. Absolute Sandman makes you feel like a kid again, with a big book in your hand, immersed in a captivating story full of mythical characters engaged in exciting, fantastical stories.
