    I just wish this wasn't a mini...

    On the other hand, sometimes it's better to have a story in mind, execute it well, then let it end gracefully rather than flounder around looking for more story.

    Great interview. I'm so hyped for this. Biggest return to comics in the history of my collecting, for sure.

    And, in a very real sense, that's what Gaiman did with the his wonderful Sandman series (although it was a little more than six issues).

    I reckon that this could be one of THE major collaborations, pairing one of the best writers with one of the best artists. I just hope DC just gives it the deluxe treatment it deserves when they come to collect it.

    JHWIII's style is just so perfect perfect perfect for Sandman. This is like Morrison/Quietly as far as how perfect the collaboration is.

    looking forward to this.

    but... why not just reboot Sandman for the New 52 while you're at it, Neil?
