Sandman – Neil Gaiman (Laurie Dix)
The Sandman comics are some of my favourites. The narrative draws from Folklore and references fairy tales and stories told the world over, the character design is well thought out and the illustrations are wonderful and varied in terms of layout and lighting.
Neil Gaiman is a wonderful writer and storyteller, and these comics have to be some of the most original and vibrant pieces of illustration and storytelling I can think of.
This is a strong contender for the sort of style I would like to use, and I hope that our characters are as interesting and thought out as these. I only wish my storytelling was as original and imaginative.
