In case it's not obvious by now, I'm a big fan of Budiansky's original series. I've already stated my opinion on the subject, so I won't repeat it here, unless someone asks me to.

But I was wondering what the opinions of other posters were. Did it get what it deserved? Did it suck eggs? Was it an excellent idea with bad execution? Was it a very good title that just flew under the radar? Was it unfairly tarred by the perception that it was supposed to be "Sandman done right"?

Any and all opinions are welcome and encouraged.

I never had the impression that the series was supposed to be "sand man done right" Sand Man was pretty alright on its own.

I thought it was its own deal. Sure they shared dreams in common, but it never glared at me as trying to do what Sandman did. I mean your talking about painted covers, neil gaimen, and more of a play on horror comics.

SpleepWalker always was a super hero book IMO. The nature of a character with dream based powers invites a certain amount of weirdness. But i always felt it was trying to be an original superhero book, and not a noir emo inspiring horror comic with edge.

I always liked it, and I'd place behind New Warriors and Darkhawk as one of my fav 90s books.
