Introduction

By no stretch of the imagination is Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series of graphic novels anything like your average comic book. One of the most critically acclaimed pieces of literature to ever grace the visual medium of comic books and originally running from 1989 all the way to 1996, The Sandman series featured a myriad of stories that hit on weighty subjects like loss, love, identity,  and fate. Far from the pulp comic books that many of us are familiar with, The Sandman was a series that was very meditative and philosophical in nature. Gaiman's impeccable writing skills made these powerful stories comprehensible and palatable, with The Sandman earning a spot on the New York Times' Best Seller List.

The Sandman Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The Sandman was once described by novelist and polymath Norman Mailer as being "a comic strip for intellectuals." Though appreciative of such a compliment, understanding the amiable place from which it came, Gaiman would likely shoot down that notion - encouraging anyone and everyone to read The Sandman, regardless of their IQ. You see, The Sandman books may feature prosy dialogue and high concept stories, but the series is ultimately about the importance of stories - how they help us define the world around us and ourselves and how they can potentially serve as one of the true undying aspects of the human experience. You don't need to be a rocket scientist or a philosopher to read The Sandman - you just need to be prepared to be challenged mentally, morally, and spiritually as you turn through the pages of Gaiman's magnum opus.  Why should you give your dog a Sandman inspired name? To show solidarity with Gaiman's goal of underscoring the importance of story to human civilization as a whole. It may sound like we're being a bit melodramatic, but the ability to tell and understand stories is one of the key things that helped humanity progress as far as we have over the years. What better way to pay homage to one of man's best traits than to allude to it via man's best friend?
