Random Comic Pick - Episode 28

My random comic pick on The Comic Conspiracy: Episode 28 is Sandman #8 written by Neil Gaiman with art by Mike Dringenberg. The stand alone story in this issue is titled "The Sound of Her Wings" and it is one of my favorite Sandman stories. This issue marks the first appearance of Death of the Endless in comics. It is a simple story in which Sandman and his sister Death walk and talk as she goes about her duty of collecting the dead to take them to the other side.
I instantly fell in love with this story and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story. You can find the actual issue but it will cost you a little bit because it is the first appearance of Death, but there is an Essential Vertigo copy out there that is cheap, you can pick up Sandman (Vol.1): Preludes and Nocturnes (which collects Sandman #1-8), or you can snag a digital version from out Comixology digital store to give it a read. I have enjoyed this story so much that I actually used a panel from it as my first banner on my other blog.

"The Sound of Her Wings" is and will always be one of my favorite comics of all time. Check it out.

Remember Comics Conspiracy is a great place to order comics and you can also download comics at the Comics Conspiracy - Comixology Storefront for your computer, tablet or phone.
