Hmf, no thumbnail. This was a reread (Matt gave it to me for my birthday and we already own it in a different edition). Dave McKean's artwork is incredible as ever and Gaiman's compressed, dreamy-intense, allusive story-telling renders this a gorgeous stand-alone graphic novel. Beautifully interwoven with familiar characters from the DC universe (Lex Luthor, Batman, Swamp Thing, Poison Ivy, plus some minor denizens of Arkham Asylum). The conclusion is um erm okay not that great (a poster over at The Comic Treadmill* reported, "I had people coming into the shop for years looking for issue #4 of this series, apparently not believing that was actually the real ending.") but it's a worthwhile read nonetheless.
and when are we going to be able to embed links in these reviews for pete's sake?!
