Dustcovers: The Collected Sandman Covers 1989-1996 by Dave McKean

Rating: ***** (5 out of 5)

Review: A book about the wonderful work of Dave McKean for the Sandman comics. There really isn’t much else to say – if you love Dave McKean’s artwork you will love this book. Each cover has a story, and all the little details will have you stare at the images for a long time. It’s interesting to see how his work evolved over the years, and the commentary from both the artist and Neil Gaiman (who also wrote a short story for the book) is funny and insightful.

Definitely worth it if you’re a Sandman fan. If you’re not, I’m sure you’ll be interested in checking it out after you read this book.

    Hello, came across your blog on the GoodReads list, looking forward to reading what you have to say.

    Have you seen the volumes of the Absolute Sandman? They are larger in size and really showcase the artwork, just beautiful.

    • Hello, thanks for your comment! I’ve actually bought the two first Absolute Sandman, they’re beautiful. I have a couple of the smaller issues as well and the difference is staggering. Really worth it!
