" I heard that they are definitely doing is an Absolute Sandman.
Because frankly, the first twenty odd issues of Sandman (in particular,
but there’s more running through) were colored for a process that
hasn’t been used for twenty years on that old paper stock. And now the
paper stock is amazing, the print process is amazing and we’re still
using the colors which look worse and worse with every printing. That’s
not satisfactory. We’ve always known we needed to recolor the first two
graphic novels and maybe the first couple issues of Dream Country. Steve Oliff took over on Sandman
19 and 20 and made it beautiful but at that point it was a computerized
process. We’ve always wanted to recolor those and that I think, is
incentive enough. The question is how are we going to do it and what
will the Absolute Sandman be? For example, I don’t know whether
the physical mechanics of book production will actually allow for a two
thousand page book. A complete Sandman book would probably look
like something encyclopedia sized. On the other hand, it would be a
really cool object. And you could kill somebody if you hit them with it. "
