Annotated Sandman - Neil Gaiman and Leslie Klinger

The Annotated Sandman comes in two large volumes (issues 1-20 and 21-39) and is worth every penny. Vertigo assembled an introduction from author Neil Gaiman and annotations from the rock star of research Leslie S. Klinger. Klinger gives just enough background, discussions with Gaiman, and research to flesh out Gaiman’s story without getting in its way. The large format black and white reissue breathes new life into familiar images and creates a stark contrast where Klinger’s notes and the comics reside bright white against a black frame. These editions assure that Sandman will have its place in the canon as the great work that it is.

The Metabarons Deluxe Edition - Alexandro Jodorowsky and Juan Giminez

As with their publications of The Incal and The Eyes of the Cat, Humanoids has finally provided us with a standard edition of one of Europe's finest science fiction graphic novels. The Metabarons tells the epic saga of the dynasty of the Metabarons, the universe's ultimate warriors who originally appeared in The Incal by Moebius & Jodorowsky. Those unfamiliar with the series should note that this book is the closest thing you can get to a death metal space opera. And trust me, that's a good thing!
