Perfect companion

I’m doing my third read through of this series and found this excellent podcast. Absolutely love how the hosts point out so many of Gaiman’s references and allusions. It makes the read through that much more enriching.
The only draw back is that it’s only once a month so my reading outpaces their schedule. Will definitely go back and check out everything I missed after each episode comes out!

Best Sandman Podcast

Neil Gaiman's Sandman is an incredible comic book, and it's also incredibly dense. Brent and Glenn host an in-depth, comprehensive podcast that goes issue by issue and talks about all the important stuff, from the cover to the content to their favorite panels. Between Brent's knowledge of comic book lore and the greater DC Universe and Glenn's understanding of myth and classic literature, they catch all the important references and put them in their proper context. I look forward to each and every episode.

Deep Sleep

The hosts do an amazing job diving into what makes Sandman “high art”. I am on my first read through of the series and this podcast helps me think about the plot, and characters, on deeper levels. Additionally, it has allowed me to catch the vast number of literary and DC allusions that Gaiman sprinkles in throughout the series, that I otherwise would have completely missed.
