Absolute Sandman double page spread

I have all of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series in the original comics issues, but I simply couldn't resist buying this beautiful collected edition and will be treating myself to the second volume in a few weeks - each large tome collects around 20 issues so there should be 4 large volumes in the range, one a year. I think people who have only read the Sandman in the collected paperback volumes can easily forget when it first appeared monthly as a comic we would read a bit then have to wait weeks for the next bit then again and again for some eight years.

 

The collected versions make this multilayered story more accessible to more readers than the comics but I think they sometimes forget the way they were originally created and how long a time it took for Neil and a variety of amazing artists to produce this.
