    WATCHMEN, THE SANDMAN, SWAMP THING PRAISED IN ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

    The June 27/July 4 issue of Entertainment Weekly features "The New Classics: Books," with WATCHMEN is #13 in a listing that reads, "The greatest super hero story ever told and proof that comics are capable of smart, emotionally resonant narratives worthy of the label literature."

    Also on the list at #46 is THE SANDMAN, with the text, "Channeling Tolkien and Jack Kirby [Neil] Gaiman creates a romantic, tragic dream king who straddles mythology and imagination . . . a classic work of fantasy lit in comics form."

    In the sidebar "My Top 10 New Classic Monsters," Neil Gaiman puts Alan Moore's Swamp Thing at the top of the list, calling him "The best muck-encrusted monster in the best comics."
