I was just thinking about that scene with the unicorn today, and how that, along with an F-bomb, were just tonally off for some reason. Still, probably one of his better works. And the movie, while taking some liberties, is equally good IMO. Just in a different way. Very Princess Bride-esque. Still, Sandman is still his best work. While his prose isn't bad by any means, I think just the images and dialogue served his strengths more. But that's probably because that's how I was first introduced to his work, so the actual prose was a departure to me.
