I did not think I’d like it at first, but oh boy that book did not let me off the hook. Can’t wait for the next ones (even though it works as a stand alone too as well). I really liked the characters (Lucifer, Dream, death although not as much and also the girl lol). It’s Neil Gaiman, what did I expect?!?!

This was the first comic I have ever read. I am not familiar with the genre so I really don't know how to process this medium. I know that I read this super fast. It took me a couple pages to get into because the beginning had a lot of characters and I did not know if I had to remember them all. But once I got the gist of the storytelling I was hooked. I read this so fast I felt like I always had to see what was next. It was a very strange experience as this is a very strange book. It's funny because this book is about dreams and it really felt as wild as one of my own dreams. I was discussing this with my boyfriend as I read it and I kept saying that I did not know if I liked it because it was so weird. But I ultimately concluded that because I read it so voraciously I must have enjoyed it.  I will for sure be continuing in this series
