Leatherbound Sandman omnibus, book two

Back in September, I blogged the release of the first volume of Vertigo's leatherbound Sandman collection, a 1,000-page marvel that collected the first half of the comic's run. Today, they've released volume two, at $90, which completes the set. Yum! Here's Jshillingford's mouth-watering photos of book one.

The Sandman Omnibus Vol. 2

  1. I recently picked up volume 10 of the recoloured edition (having bought and read the previous 9) - this is bad timing smile

    Although it's a big-ass collection - only two books? They must be beastly to read.

    Edit: Just saw the pics - blimey it's big! Anyone got any pics of the actual pages, are they normal 'comic book' pages? i.e. not those thick, papery, rough pages (I hate those).

  2. I see you also have a copy of the wonderful and woefully underrated "Tea with the Black Dragon." Beautiful book.

  3. Would still like to know what the differences between prints are if someone can answer this. Is the omnibus sacrificing anything when compared to the Absolute version? Are they the same? Is paper/print quality better in one over the other?

    I already have the first tow volumes of the Absolute Sandman, and before i end up spending a huge amount of money on completing it i'd like to know if i should continue or sell them to get the Omnibus version instead.

  4. I wish MacAvoy got as much credit for Tea with the Black Dragon as Gaiman did for Sandman.

  5. There is a video review here. Not sure if you can tell from that but it might help. He does compare the two slightly toward the end.
