Name: Ed L.
Bio: Been reading comics since '85. Took like a ten-year break during college (where the only thing I read were Batman GNs and Preacher.) Currently back to reading. Reading mostly Marvel stuff (from the Silver Age thanks to Marvel's Essentials trades and new post-Civil War stuff) and a bunch of indy stuff. Will flesh this profile out later.
I'm assuming the Sandman issues available thru the app will be the ones featuring the new digital coloring available on the Absolute Sandman editions. The Sandman trades currently available feature the old-school coloring.
I still think these comics are priced for regular comics readers and not priced to attract new readers. It'll be interesting to see if they ever release sales figures for these digital comics.
Seriously, WTF is up with Vertigo and their cheap paper quality? Been picking this and Preacher in HC and the thin-ass newsprint paper makes me feel kinda ripped-off (even though I've enjoyed the damned thing.) Still picking this up though!
This book has been truly beatiful (story and artwise) but when the eventual trade appears Vertigo should put a disclaimer in the introduction that the book should probably not be read in one sitting because it can be too emotionally taxing. (I'm only partially serious.)
Really loving Dave Stewart's coloring on this series.
