I have started reading The sandman by Neil Gaiman. So far I’ve read the two first volumes, and I really liked them. What I’m not sure of however is how to write about graphic novels. I liked them, and I think I liked the story. I’m still not used to pictures with my text again, it’s going to take some time. I found Dream to be a fasinating character, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of him and his story.
At the same time, the story confuses me a lot. It’s very surreal, the whole comic, but at the same time most of it does make a lot of sense. Both of the volumes had an overall storyarc with small stories within, which amuses me 🙂 Not all the drawings are very detailed, but I sit and look at every single one of them. I did think that reading comics like this would take less time that reading a novel, I was wrong. Oh well, I’ve only read the first two volumes, so I have ten more to read 🙂
