Destruction and Hob Gadling. But Lucifer was pretty cool too.

Hob Gadling. Dude was like "dying is a chump move. I'm just not gonna do that." And so he didn't. That's hilarious to me for some reason. Although he did enslave people. That's kind of a dick move.

And then there's Death, who goes without saying.

>>78886558
At the expense of sounding cliché I couldn't actually chose, the Sandman has such an excellent cast I couldn't pick a vavorite. Lucifer was great, but I also liked all of the Endless as well as Dream's house servants
>>
>>78886640
To be fair, he was born in a time when slavery was the norm in most of the world.
>>
>>78886669
That doesn't make it okay, but it does make it understandable.

I adored Mazikeen in Lucifer if that counts. She didn't do much in Sandman.

Lyta hall as the furies.

I was about to post this.

Mazikeen was a fucking baller.

>so I told him to not die, and he didn't! the absolute mad man!
Men of Good Fortune is my favorite single comic issue.

My second pick would be Matthew.
>>
>>78886558
As an edgelord teen, my favorite character was the Corinthian. After losing my virginity and re-reading the series, I gotta go with Matthew the raven.

Hob Fucking Gadling saved my dumbass life.

Delirium

There's something about the Corinthian's design that's so appealing though.

Best character coming through.

>>78886686
He feels guilty for hundreds of years after though. I think he would've killed himsefl if he wasn't already set on living forever. Doesn't excuse, but sheds some light on his beliefs
>>
>>78886558
Probably Alladin.

David Bowie was my favorite Sandman character.

>>78887666
yes

>>78888612
Holy shit, was there some live action Sandman stuff I should know about?
>>
Matthew the Raven and Hobs Galding are the coolest motherfuckers, and Foxglove/Hazel is the best lesbian ship
>>
>>78895523
Thats an edited scene from Leon The Professional.
There is no live action Sandman other than the movie thats been in development 5ever.
>>
>>78895691
What were they thinking, letting JGL direct it?
>>
>>78886558
Bowie
>>
Tough question for sure. The Corinthian just is creepy, a nightmare, and ... A-and perfect

Did Alan Moore put David Bowie into anything?

>>78887666
This!

Love her.

I can't forgive him for raping Delight and turning her into Delirium.

Really liked how Gaiman managed to tie in all the other Sandmen into one plot.

In no particular order Cain, Abel, Matthew, Delirium, Delirium's doggy.

It was pretty fucked up how she made that cop go literally insane with the invisible bugs. He didn't deserve that.

No, he only immortalized Sting

Robinson later managed to copy this very well in Starman
>>
>want to buy it physical because I loved it
>all the recent printings have the shitty deviantart-tier recolors
So my options are either 15 year old TPBs or original issues, right?
>>
>>78898669
That's literally one of the main points about this series.

You see Dream, Delirium, Destruction, even Death, and you project some human characteristics onto them because they're drawn anthropomorphically. You even see the positive vulnerability of Delirium. But at the end of the day, they're concepts; their world is so different from ours that it's impossible for us to meaningfully understand them. It's not even entirely clear that the Endless control their particular spheres, versus just being an embodiment of the inherent force underlying their sphere.

Nobody "deserves" death, "deserves" madness, "deserves" war, "deserves" to dream. these things happen and it is beyond our ken to stop them. This is one of the most brilliant things about Sandman, IMO; it mostly avoids portraying the endless as good or bad. They are. The least of them is so impossibly complex and powerful as compared to a human as to make all discussion of morality or any other human concept meaningless.

Dream, Destruction, Desire and Delirium are portrayed as more sentimental to human concerns and foibles, because their spheres have more to do with the human world, but at the end of the day even Dream understands that the human realm is fundamentally more limited than that of the endless or even Hell. The "point" is that our lives are ultimately subordinate to a vast set of complex systems beyond our reckoning, whether that be God, the Endless, or quantum physics.

Thanks for reading my autism.

Tilda Swinton

Seconded.

I bet Gaiman's heard a lot of stories like that.

Alright alright alright

Favorite character in Lucifer everyone?

>>78899128
>liking the original colors
Disgusting t b h
>>
>>78899791
What do you like about the new colors? They're so depressingly literal; the old colors have a wonderful surrealistic tone to them that suits the storytelling well.
>>
>>78899419
Thank you for the autism

>>78899721
Mazikeen. Followed by Lucifer and Elaine Belloc.
