So I'm reading Sandman for first time and I don't see what's the appealing. It's a pretenciious boring comic with a Shakespeare wannabe forcefully shoved

Don't forget the terrible, inconsistent art.
>>
forcefully shoved....

The suspense is killing me

What's it like living with the worst taste ever?

You have no idea what you're saying, do you?

You have to understand that the comics industry and readership was completely different back then. Watchmen was still fresh in readers' minds, and creators/companies were experimenting with what they could put out. Part of the appeal was that in the late 80s comics like Sandman and the others that would go on to form the Vertigo imprint were a new direction for DC, and comics in general.

It was big with goths back when goth existed.

Hey, /lit/. That's some nice bait you got there.
>>
>>77709887
Maybe you should go back to read your simples web comics.
>>
Not OP but whats the appeal of sandman?

like what I've seen looks cool but I've been disappointed by comics that everyone else praises before.

Whats so great about it?
>>
>>77709887
I'm reading it for the first time also and I'm enjoying it. I felt the same as you after the first arc but I just finished the doll and it really got me into it.
>>
I should read Overture first?
>>
>>77709887
You started at the beginning? If so, stay with it for at least another trade; things get better, I promise.

That's a really good question, and there's not really a quick and simple answer to it. Everything's so well put together (excusing the start, where Gaiman was finding his feet, and that's still pretty good) that it ends up drawing you in and making you think.

B-but its a prequel
>>
>>77711398
It's good, dark fantasy about an autistic learning to get along with people.
>>
>>77712233
It spoils a lot of things from the original. It's more like a realy unnecessary epilogue disguised as a prequel. The art is nice tho
>>
Never read it. Hope to soon.

I also read it because people said it was too good and all that stuff, I got disappointed. but then again it's my opinion, we all have different tastes about different stuff.
