Absolute Sandman 4

 

There is a clear sadness it this final volume. First the feeling of inevitability and then the feeling of loss. Sure that is part of the story but I think I feel a bigger loss in the stories that come after – especially the Hob Gadling story at the Ren Fair.
It is hard to explain but what I really think is that it isn’t sadness at reading the story but rather channeling the sadness from when I first read them. Feeling the ending of a beautiful piece of art that I had watched unfold over the previous 6+ years.

Regardless, it is incredibly well done.

Sandman is the best long-form comic series ever created.
This volume includes the absolute stellar ‘World’s End’ arc as well as the search of r Destruction, Ramadan, and others.

 

Brilliant work.
