Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman

I have “read more graphic novels” as a rather vague goal for this year and, as I like Neil Gaiman’s books, I thought this would be a good place to start.

It took me a while to get into the swing of reading it – I’ve never read a graphic novel/comic book before and I didn’t get my head round it straight away. I enjoyed it a lot though, and I particularly liked the last story in the book which featured Death. I understand there’s a series featuring her so I’ll be looking that up too.

The basic story is about Morpheus (the sandman) who is captured and imprisoned for 60 years. He manages to escape and this series of stories is about him regrouping and regaining his power. I’m looking forward to reading more of this now that the groundwork has been laid.
