Dammit, I Don't Need the Reissued Sandman!

But now that I've seen a sample of the recolored artwork, I want it.

I imagine that Preludes and Nocturnes makes a great deal more sense with a color palette that extends beyond green.

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**.

* 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."
