Absolute Christmas

I just finished celebrating one holiday and now I am already looking forward to the next one. I know it’s too early to ask for a Christmas gift, but I really want, want, WANT this one!

 

Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1 (Hardcover)

 

 

The slipcase edition comes out today. GGAAARRRGGHHH!

Here’s a brief description from Amazon.com: “The first of four beautifully designed slipcased volumes, THE ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOL. 1 collects issues 1-20 of The Sandman and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, on the first 18 issues, as well as a host of never-before-seen extra material, including the complete original Sandman Proposal, a gallery of character designs from Gaiman and the artists who originated the look of the Sandman, and the original script to the World Fantasy Award-winning THE SANDMAN #19, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” together with reproductions of the issue’s original pencils by Charles Vess. Also included are a new introduction by DC’s president Paul Levitz and a new afterword by Gaiman.”

My mouth is watering at the thought of having this preciousssss… thing in my hands. Hey, I’ve been good all year long; I really think I deserve to have a copy pronto! I am sure Santa knows how much I would appreciate this gift.

Okay, while he’s at it, maybe he could get me Alan Moore’s Lost Girls, too. Alan Moore, the genius behind The Watchmen, tells the story of our favorite girls–Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy–and gives us a peek into their very intimate, grown-up world. Their meeting occurs long after we’ve put down our copies of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Wendy and the Wizard of Oz. I hear it’s not for the faint-hearted (as all of his graphic novels); we not only get to see these girls as women, we get to see them as real women (the book is very sexually graphic, bordering on pornographic).

Sigh. Two more things to add to my growing wish list…
