My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I decided to pick up Volume II of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman graphic novel series at the library after enjoying the first volume. However, I didn’t think this one was quite as good as the first. The series is pretty dark and it sometimes goes a little darker than my tastes prefer. This volume featured serial killers in great detail and that just wasn’t really my thing.
Despite that, The Doll’s House probably included the most enjoyable individual issue so far. I’m having a hard time recalling what the issue was called, but it was basically this story of a guy that lived forever. I really liked that one. It was actually a pretty good, slightly uplifting story, with a touch of humor even.
I don’t really have a lot more to say here. Overall, the volume was pretty good, but it didn’t blow my mind. I suspect that I’ll continue reading the series (because I’ve heard it really gets awesome), but I’m not in any rush to grab the next volume right now.
