    As the title suggests.
    Just working myself slowly towards the end of the Sandman series and its fantastic.
    I got into graphic novels through the brilliant work of Joe Sacco and his works on Palestine.
    Branched out into the Alan Moore stuff and havent looked back.

    Gaimans Sandman was not just a comic........

    The Sandman was one of Vertigos flagship titles, and is available as a series of ten trade paperbacks. It has also been reprinted in a recolored four-volume Absolute hardcover edition with slipcase. Critically acclaimed, The Sandman was the only comic to ever win the World Fantasy Award,[1] and is one of the few comic books ever to be on the New York Times Best Seller list, along with Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. It was one of five comics to make Entertainment Weeklys "100 best reads from 1983 to 2008", ranking at 46.[2] Norman Mailer described the series as "a comic book for intellectuals."[3]

    Ive got the Dark Knight Returns and the Dark Knight Strikes Again, and the Watchmen special edition.

    I still reckon the Dark Knight Returns is one of the best reads ever.

    I once had the very first 1# The Phantom comic
    However my wife either put it somewhere safe and thus we cant find it or it went out in the rubbish

    I have probably read thousands of comics since I was 10 years old from Superman to Donald Duck
