June saw me continuing with my Read All Things Gaiman quest. I still have quite a few to go, but I’m absolutely loving all of them.
This past month, I read through all ten volumes of The Sandman series. It is by far my favorite of all of his works, and I’m looking forward to reading The Sandman Companion and a few of the other essays and analysis over the next few weeks.
Did anyone else notice the incredible similarity between Dream’s helm and the Engineers’ helmets in that Prometheus abomination?
From Sandman, I went to the spin offs – the two Death books, and Endless nights, a collection of store about the other siblings in the Endless family. They’re all worth a read, but aren’t quite as impressive as the original series.
Murder Mysteries is the graphic novelization of one of the short stories in Smoke and Mirrors, detailing the first murder amongst the angels. I love that collection, especially the story of the Holy Grail and Snow White.
The Sandman was the inspiration for my right sleeve (which eventually will be finished, although I’m obviously in no rush). I also have plans for other pieces from it, eventually.
Completely off the Gaiman theme, I must have paged through the Francesca Woodman book about ten times since it arrived a few weeks ago. So completely inspirational.
As always, I’m curious what you’ve read recently. Anything spectacular?
For whatever reason, I had an incredibly difficult time organizing my thoughts for this post. I’m sure it shows, as reading back it seems a bit scattered about. My apologies, friends.
