The Sandman

The Sandman

Having never read the GRAPHIC NOVELS but heard loads about them over the years I was very keen to watch this, and mostly enjoyed the British emo/stoner vibing lead character. Took me a minute to pick up that as a comic book the pace of it wouldn’t necessarily be episodic story arc, but could be distinct stories – some of which were very enjoyable indeed. Overall it was a wonderful escape with great production values and a very rich sense of self. Some bits bored me, and in hindsight given its tone & subject matter it’s a very risky proposition of something to try to watch late at night when one’s partner has disappeared off to bed.
