"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes.

Book #28 of my reading list was Neil Gaiman's The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes.

Part 1 of 10: I've got a long way to go on this series. To find out more about the Sandman series Wikipedia is a good place to start. I gathered this little nugget from there: 'the only comic book to ever be on the New York Times Bestseller List.' Also quality is some of the info on the attempts to make it into a movie including this gem: "Gaiman called the last screenplay that Warner Brothers would send him '...not only the worst Sandman script I've ever seen, but quite easily the worst script I've ever read '".
