Audible is clearly enamored with The Sandman. The meat of this podcast is the director gushing with actor/narrator Kat Dennings, and name dropping the ever expanding list of involved actors. However to me, hyping the narrators, sound effects, and path to Marvel blessing a Sandman character variation suggests that the substance of the book itself isn’t strong enough to stand on its own. Don’t try to sell me a car by hyping it’s cherry color and cool rims- I care what’s under the hood.
I listened to book 1 and found some of the novellas entertaining. But, all the flash and panache was desensitizing and ultimately made it difficult to enjoy the story. For book 2, this podcast forecasts more lipstick on the pig without convincing me the bacon will actually sizzle.
