Love this --- hands down, my fave Sandman issue ever. Fun fact: Sandman was hovering on the brink of cancellation, and Karen Berger (et al.) decided to do something radical. Issue #8 was comp'd to retailers based on the number of copies they'd ordered (ordered 0 copies, got 1 free, etc.), with the hope that people who'd simply passed over it in the catalogs would take a look at the freebie and see what they'd been missing.

I remember those charts, and remember how Sandman took off after that ... when's the last time a publisher just *knew* they had worthwhile product on their hands *and* took steps to widen the market? There's so much drek flooding out into the LCS that quality books are buried -- must order 70 gazillion copies of each Wolverine book, so any non-Wolverine/Mutant/etc. title is lost. *sigh*
