Let me start off by saying – HOLY CRAP!!!! As part of today’s Kindle deals, Amazon has Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes for only $2.99 – that’s 85% the list price of $19.99!!! This is a 240-page full-color graphic novel for only three bucks!
The volumes begins the series and contains The Sandman #1-8, with all the coloring and enhancements from the Absolute Edition.
This week saw the release of The Sandman: Overture #1, which launches the new Sandman miniseries, so if you want to start back at the beginning before diving into the new book, then now’s your chance and for a low, low price. Actually, this weekend, 110 Sandman comics (including its offshoots like Death and The Sandman Presents…) for the Kindle for only $.99 each in Amazon’s The Sandman Series Sale.
Yes, my mind is blown at this deal. This is one of my favorite comic book series ever and I never get tired of rereading it. And even though I already own these issues in many print variations, I plan to get in on today’s deal so I can have it on my Kindle, too. HIGHLY recommend.
In PRELUDES & NOCTURNES, an occultist attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. After his seventy-year imprisonment and eventual escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power. On his arduous journey Morpheus encounters Lucifer, John Constantine, and an all-powerful madman. This book also includes the story “The Sound of Her Wings,” which introduces us to the pragmatic and perky goth girl Death.
