Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision.

 

In PRELUDES & NOCTURNES, an occultist attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. After his 70 year imprisonment and eventual escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power. On his arduous journey Morpheus encounters Lucifer, John Constantine, and an all-powerful madman.

 

This book also includes the story "The Sound of Her Wings," which introduces us to the pragmatic and perky goth girl Death.Includes issues 1-8 of the original series with completely new coloring, approved by the author.

Erin Duffin, January 1, 2013 (view all comments by Erin Duffin)
I was always a little wary of reading graphic novels, not really thinking it would be my thing. But my love for Neil Gaiman trumped this wariness, and I found one of my favorite series of books. "Preludes & Nocturnes," the first of The Sandman series, introduces Morpheus, the Lord of the Dreamworld. This, and the rest of the series, takes readers on a journey through the Dreamworld and the waking world, and through the family dynamics of the Endless: the family to which Morpheus belongs, neither god, nor mortal. If you too are wary of graphic novels, love Neil Gaiman as much as I do, or just love a good story, check out "Preludes & Nocturnes."
