As we pointed out a couple of weeks back, when we asked what comics series we should take on next in our Back Issues discussion feature, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman handily won our readers’ poll. Discussion of the first book of the series, Preludes & Nocturnes, begins here tomorrow at 11 a.m., with a crosstalk that covers topics from what the book title means to the way Gaiman, like fellow Brit Alan Moore, drew on the image of an iconic rock star to give a character a particular weight. Those who own the book might want to glance through it again to be fresh for the discussion; those who don’t, well hey, there are probably still bookstores open somewhere, right? Come join us tomorrow as we kick off our latest staff-and-readers discussion project.
