we're off to never never land...
At the risk of sounding like an über-geek and boring you all by talking about comic books again....have you read The Sandman by Neil Gaiman?
This stuff is AMAZING. No really... it's fantastic stuff. Erudite, witty, thoughtful, literate, intelligent, engrossing... Calling it a "comic" just doesn't seem to do justice to its achievement, and I can't get enough of it. I've devoured the first two volumes this weekend, I have one more to try to stretch out over the next week, and then I'm going straight into town to buy the other seven volumes. Seriously... this is gripping stuff.
I think the Da Vinci Code is just going to have to wait.
Am I the last person in the world to discover how good this is? You guys all know, right?
