Like you, I took one look at the artwork and had a sudden irrational need to own the new version. There's no earthly need to buy it all again, but I'm coveting it already.Preludes and Nocturnes is pretty weak as Sandman goes - both in story and art - but the first 20 issues will take us up to the end of Dream Country. That's a nice little collection.
Curses! I may buy Preludes and Nocturnes, simply because I seem to have lost my copy, but that'll just lead to my inner completist making me buy all the others as well, right?
There's no right and wrong in desires*. If you have the cash why not?:) Way I see it, if it makes you happy it can't be that bad**.Cheers:Hagay* I'll readly admit that a desire to kill and maim others IS wrong and that stealing from charity boxes to collect German honey jars from the mid-twenties IS odd. We're talking about the big picture here ok?:) you feel like it, get the book.**"In 1932 Sylvestre Matushka went on trail for enginneering a series of train crashes...he explained...that he could only achieve sexual release when witnessing a train crashing...he reappeared in 1953 during the Korean war - as the head of a military unit for blowing up trains."
