agreed. Sandman is great, Season of Mists and Dream Country are my favorite volumes.
Oh, and I finished Preacher tonight. Hell of a series. I remember seeing those individual issues coming out back when I'd go into my local comic shop and thinking they were awesome and creepy as hell at the same time. I'm glad I've now read the whole thing.
Glad you enjoyed Preacher, Bryan. Always liked that series. Did you ever get into Hellblazer at all?
Excellent. John Constantine is one of my all time favorite characters.

Getting into my Deadman collection which is probably the 2nd most complete line I own to Aquaman. Just finished the first book of this two part series:
Deadman: Exorcism (1992)
Really awesome look at Deadman and probably the one most Batman fans are familiar with (more haunting / ghostly). One of the better runs at a "mature" book from DC. I think I've owned both issues of this book since 1998 and just never actually read it until now in the midst of unearthing my entire collection in the move.
This arrives in the mail hopefully sometime next week:
Deadman Vol. 1 - It's a collection of mostly the 1967 run of Strange Adventures from #205 - 216. I own a lot of the original 1967 Strange Adventure issues but I really couldn't get into a lot of them since they're almost 45 years old, so this will actually be something I can read without worrying about tearing them or skipping over dated ads for Red Ryder BB guns.
And here's the Jenkins / Sook / Chang (though I'm not sure how much Sook will actually be involved in the series' art) cover of the DC Universe Presents #1 due in September of 2011 which will focus on Deadman in its first story arc.
Also, coming to theaters (hopefully) near you. (I figure this is the most appropriate thread for this kind of shit anyway):
I forget who made me think about this on Twitter, but is there like a single superhero who doesn't have vast, overbearing daddy issues?
I draw like J. Scott Campbell.
Spider-Man is full of daddy issues stemming from both his biological father and his uncle.
True, but I wouldn't call them "overbearing".
The new Aqualad (Jackson Hyde), however, has plenty of daddy issues.
Posting it here for want of somewhere more appropriate, but this has been doing the rounds on Twitter today (somewhat appropriately).
Dude over on Something Awful is posting his gorgeous little comic about "a little jaybird who lives in a big house almost by himself". If any of you guys are over on SA, do me a favour and relay my kudos, this is cracking.
It's not complete yet, but holy moly, it totally knocked my socks off. The artwork is fabulous, that little jaybird is more expressive than most humans and the largely text-free storytelling is just really nicely judged.
Bought Battlestar Galactica #1 today on a whim for a dollar. It's terrible. No Dirk Benedict or that brunette guy anywhere. More value just humming the theme song.
Holy cow, that Jaybird comic is amazing. I think I'm just as enthralled with the design as the process this guy uses.
"White people's skin is their jewelry." -Heems
I love, love, love the way all the hallways and boards and walls frame the little bird all the time.
That guy needs his own site or his own Kickstarter fund pronto, really impressive stuff. The thing with the spider broke my heart and made me grin like a sap all at once. I'm really looking forward to seeing where this is going.

I'm really longing to read Samurai Penguin again. Not to mention all of the Lobo mini series.

The Maxx is just phenomenal also.
