Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sandman, written by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman is also widely considered one of the most original and artistically ambitious series of the modern age. By the time it concluded in 1996, it had made significant contributions to the artistic maturity of comic books and become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right.

Now, DC Comics is proud to present this comics classic in an all-new Absolute Edition format. The first of four beautifully designed slipcased volumes, The Absolute Sandman Volume 1 collects issues #1–20 of The Sandman and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, on the first 18 issues, as well as a host of never-before-seen extra material including the complete original Sandman proposal, a gallery of character designs from Gaiman and the artists who originated the look of the Sandman, and the original script for the World Fantasy Award-winning The Sandman #19, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," together with reproductions of the issue's original pencils by Charles Vess. Also included are a new introduction by DC President and Publisher Paul Levitz and an afterword by Gaiman.

Review:

"[M]any of the stylistic elements that would define Gaiman's later fiction were well under his command two decades ago. In the first 20 issues of the series collected in this lavish hardcover edition, one can already see an author with a voracious appetite for literature and an accompanying taste for the occult..." Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"The Sandman and his siblings are embodiments of the dark forces of nature — death, destiny, and other dismaying elementals. They play out their adventures mostly in contemporary settings that have been completely recolored for the first of four...volumes that will re-present them all." Booklist

Neil Gaiman is a master storyteller. This is one of the most literate graphic novels ever written. This gorgeous book is full of beautiful illustrations, mythical worlds and characters, and fantastical stories. It also made Time Magazine's Top 10 graphic novels of 2006!
