Chances are good you already know that the first issue of Neil Gaiman’s new Sandman series was released this past October; as one of the best-selling comics of 2013, it created quite a splash. What you may not know (I didn’t, but I’m easily distracted) is that for every issue of the series, one month later a “Special Edition” copy will be released, with bonus materials and a better look at the original art.
I bought both issues, and you may be wondering if it’s worth it to buy the extra copy (which will be slightly more expensive than the regular issue.)
My answer is: yes and no. It depends on who you are, what you know, and what you think is important. Vague enough for you? Read on!
