I've been reading Sandman lately and its pretty good, Sandman's a pretty interesting character even if it is kind of hard to connect with him because he's not human and thinks kind of differently from us but he does have human qualities so you can like him as a character. The plots are always weird and fun to read, usually dark too. What's getting me though is these critics who write about Sandman on Sandman books basically giving Neil Gaiman a giant ego blowjob and putting down other comics. I remember, I think it was the fifth volume some dude was going off about how everything was mediocre but Sandman wasn't and that made his life harder or something equally inane. It sounds like, too me, these people who never read comics read Sandman, liked it and then talked about how its better than every other comic ever which I find ridiculous. I feel Jesse Custer from Preacher is a much better character than Sandman and has a better plot too because there's an actual reason for why he's going after God. Sandman's good but its not THE BEST COMIC EVER OMG in my estimation y'know?
I was just wondering what you people thought about Sandman in general and if anyone agrees/disagrees with me on this.
