Sincerely, The Sandman

Sincerely, The Sandman

A new month brings a new Dollar Box column from your humble narrator over at StashMyComics.com.

This month I take a close look at “Sincerely, The Sandman” from Hulk #138. While the plot is little different from the usual rage-of-the-month antics of Silver Age Hulk, creators Herb Trimpe and Roy Thomas really stepped up their game for this largely-forgotten little gem of a story. The tale is filled with literary allusions and artist Herb Trimpe proves he was more than just an inventory artist with page layouts and visual storytelling evocative of the great Will Eisner!

Even if you aren’t a fan of these creators or this character, you owe it to yourself to check out this issue, which I think you will find surprising. Thanks again to StashMyComics.com for hosting The Dollar Box!
