Funny, I was just watching a long YT video yesterday evening which discussed the Doctor Who episode "The Doctor's Wife", which was written by Neil Gaiman. The narrator also went into some depth about the brilliance of the "Sandman" stories. He was a big Gaiman fan.
Now you guys have me adding a new series to my reading list.I just listened to the Audible full cast audio drama of The Sandman. Which covers the first three books. This series is awesome in any format.
