Reviews The Sandman Universe #1

  • Sam Quixote
    Like DC Universe Rebirth #1 a couple years ago, The Sandman Universe #1 is a one-shot sizzle reel showcasing the upcoming line’s titles. And, like DC Universe Rebirth #1, The Sandman Universe #1 buh-looooooows!There are four new Sandman spin-off comics on the way for any emo goffs still moping around to get their jizz in a tizz: The Dreaming and House of Whispers in September, Lucifer and The Books of Magic in October. This issue gives us a pee...

    For Sandman's 30th anniversary DC decided to celebrate with a blatant editorial cash grab, once again launching (or re-launching) a whole universe based on Neil Gaiman's famous comic book. This one-shot is meant to be a preview of the four new series that are about to start this fall, and none of them leave a particularly good impression. This is Sandman passed through a calculating corporate lens, stripping Gaiman's unique and distinctive work f...

    A beautiful expansion of the world.This is a single issue so I won’t break down my review into sections like I normally do but share my general thoughts without spoilers. I loved the Sandman series for it’s tone and it’s pacing and this single issue feels like that, there are some parts that feel more but overall it’s pretty great to recapture that feeling. The first section is wonderful and is exactly more of the stuff I want, Daniel and...

    Many readers will be drawn here "with whispers that shone like silver foil and still-cooling eyeballs". It is indeed a welcome return to the librarian, the crows, and the godlike characters that never do what they are supposed to do (or, in other words, a "buncha myths and goddamn metaphors"). Read this - but don't read the blurb on goodreads. That's currently a precis of all five comic titles that will combine to create, er, something. I've alwa...

    A confusing rant written much too late at night. Sometime ago, perhaps around the time of the New 52, or when it became evident to corporate and editorial that the reboot was a creative and commercial failure--a shift occurred. A crack formed in the DC Universe. It at first perhaps like the serpent's curse of Superman's symbol. Just a small little chip in the foundation. There was a lot of money being made in movies, tv and merchandising. Across ...

    "There is a place, where--for as long as a sleeper can sleep--stories are spun" WOW. JUST WOW. I've plunged into this without any background of The Sand Man, Lucifer, Tim's story, and the Whispers. But, dang. For a short issue, this one had flung me into a surreal world I'm definitely going to fall in love. The illustrations were beautifully drawn and the details! THE DETAILS GUYS It's so freaktastic and I can't wait for the next issue this Sept...

    Goosebumps! So happy to be back in The Dreaming. Artwork is amazing!
  • Sean Byrne
    An enjoyable return to the world of dreams, even if very little really happens. It's very much apparent that this is meant as an introductory issue for the coming mini-series'. There was just enough bite to keep me interested going forward.
  • Yasmine
    Magnificent! I especielly adored the narration at the beginning of the story.

    অসাধারণ এক শুরু। সামনে ঘটতে যাওয়া পরতিটা কাহিনীর উপর সুনদরভাবে ছোঁয়া দিয়ে যাওয়া হয়েছে। অংকনও দারুণ। সযানডমযান ভকতদের জনয মাসটরীড। অসাধারণ এক শুরু। সামনে ঘটতে যাওয়া প্...
