Absolute Sandman

One of my friends bought a copy of Absolute Sandman a while ago. She never got around to reading it so she wanted it to pass it on to someone who would appreciate it. We love Neil Gaiman and Sandman so she gave it to us!

The Absolute collection retains the original line art but it’s reprinted in a bigger format and updated coloring. I took a few pictures so you can see the difference. The larger format is great and I love the new colors. They make use of modern coloring technology to provide a greater range of colors and shading and makes the art look even classier. The only quibble I have is that I think they’re occasionally a bit heavy on the use of gradients. But overall, it really works well. Thanks, Emma, for the new version of one of my favorite comics!
