About Once a Week: Sandman #2

Sandman #2, what can I say. This is very much a continuation of the story form issue one, and it works hard to answer some of the questions that the reader had from that issue, but in a lot of ways it is just a lot of set up, and is pretty boring.

Now I know, … [Read more...]
