"Far and above the most inventive and most human comic of the decade."
-- Samuel R. Delany
"Along with all else, Sandman is a comic strip for intellectuals and I say it's about time." Norman Mailer
"Sandman is a story about story, a myth about myth, a postmodern metafiction with word balloons."
-- Charles Shaar Murray, The Independent
"Gaiman has invented, out of whole cloth, a mythology not just of the comics but of storytelling itself."
-- Frank McConnell, Commonweal Magazine
