Even though the series ended, the author felt like he was trying to get through a story fight with Sandman Slim. A book is short of the last author, but a book may not be published soon. You must keep in mind that a story of Stark and Candy started earlier this season, and that it was simpler than they were at the end. That story is only one book.
Do you need to read the Sandman Slim series according to your order?
Yes, I’d definitely recommend reading the Sandman Slim Series in its release order. Everything that happened to our half-anglic antihero happens chronologically. Even the short stories fit the first reverberation of the story in the box.
