Have you ever read a comic that is amazing but could be even better if it wasnt for somewhat dated art? I feel this way about alot of the Sandman issues ESPECIALLY the early issues. I just cant imagine how amazing it would be if someone like Andrea Sorrentino, Frank Quietly, or Frazer Irving had drawn the Sandman using modern technology and techniques. I also kinda feel like that about the Dark Knight Returns but to a lesser extent.
ditto on DKR. I couldn't make it through it. (Glad the animated adaptation came out). I prefer more modern (mid-90s at least) comics in general because of the art. I know CoIE is a "classic" of the DC universe, but I had to force myself through it (to just learn the story) - I just don't care for older comic-art.
