Description

Sandman is my favourite comic book ever and, consequently, Neil Gaiman is my favourite writer (followed by Frank Miller and Alan Moore) so a nice page from the series had to be part of my collection; unfortunately Sandman's art is not the best in the world and pieces with Dream on are not easy to be found.
I've been on the lookout for the right example for quite some time and, a couple of years ago, I decided to get a very nice Talbot's piece from Sandman #30, in which Augustus the Emperor of Rome wonders the street of the Capital as as a poor man begging for change. Nice shot of Dream and of the ravem. Very nice page. I had it framed and on my wall for years. But I knew, I knew in my heart that I had to get a better piece, from a better story line and by a better artist... Not an easy task but a challenging one for sure! But this one part of collecting that I like a lot!
Of course I was not ready to sell my Talbot and wait for a new page to show up; if I get the money from a sale I spend it immediately. No patience. That would have meant no Sandman in my collection and that was not possible anymore. I had to sell-and-buy at the same time. Not easy, almost impossible. But then the stars aligned. I saw this Kelley Jones for sale and spoke with the seller. He was polite and understanding. He gave me time and I sent a couple of emails. Got some kind replies. Got an offer. I made a counterproposal. The potential buyer accepted it and paypalled straight away. I had almost all the money. Made a very fast downpayment to the seller and put the page on hold; I sold another piece in 24 hours (easy to sell, hard to let it go). Paid the page in full. One week later, today, I received the Art in the mail.
Kelley Jones, Sandman #24, Season of Mists part III, when Dream thinks about the recent events and finally understands that Lucifer had given him the key to Hell. "Perhaps it will destroy you, and perhaps it won't. But I doubt it will make your life any easier". And we know it won't. Dream is pissed, he punches a mirror, he is in despair. He still misses Nada. So he goes to speak to his sister Death who has her own problems as all the dead have returned to life. Dream looks like Robert Smith from The Cure. There is some zip-a-tone. The page is silent, no balloons. Hooray to me!
