The Sandman, Vol. 2: The Doll's House by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Corinthian and the serial murderer's convention was rather special, and Rose Walker was somewhat interesting the first time reading this, but the second time? I think it was much better.
It's all about how we are shaped and what we shape, from feelings of listlessness (Dream), making a new life (the escaped dreams), or friendship with Hob, the humanity of Death, of Desire's machinations.
All of which touch on something deeper than a single series of comics should ever have a chance to commit.
Very impressive storytelling, and weird, full to the brim with images and sequences that go very deep indeed.
