Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Doll's House is the second volume in the story of The Sandman.

During Morpheus's incarceration, three dreams escaped the Dreaming and are now loose in the waking world. At the same time, a young woman named Rose Walker is searching for her little brother. As their stories converge, a vortex is discovered that could destroy all dreamers, and the world itself.

Written by Neil Gaiman.
Illustrated by Mike Dringenberg, Malcolm Jones III, Chris Bachalo, Michael Zulli, and Steve Parkhouse.
Painted Cover by Dave McKean
Introduction by Clive Barker.

Review:

"Witty, vicious, elegant, and cruel." Tash Robinson, Daily Iowan

Review:

"Mr. Gaiman is one of those adventurous creators who sees no reason why his tales shouldn't embrace slapstick comedy, mystical musings, and the grimmest collection of serial killers this side of death row....If the sheer profusion of these inventions and the apt absurdity of some of the juxtapositions puts you in mind of one of your more heated dreams, then surely that's what Mr. Gaiman intends." Clive Barker, author of Weaveworld and The Great and Secret Show, from his Introduction

Review:

"The Sandman is Neil Gaiman's own inventory of the books of hell, personally rewritten with no small measure of ambition or cockiness." Steve Erickson, L.A. Weekly

Review:

"The Sandman is not a superhero...he is an observer, occasionally a catalyst, rarely the focus of the action. He rules the kingdom of dreams and his motives are not ours to understand. Neil Gaiman...is the best...[at] combining passion with gruesome horror [and] delicate characterization with exhaustive research." Lewis Shiner, Slam

Synopsis:

The mythos of the Sandman expands with the introduction of his older sister, Death, and a convention of serial killers.

This is where The Sandman really starts to hit its stride, and the groundwork is laid for events that will become important later on in the series. This was the first Sandman collection I ever read, so I have a lot of affection for it, even though it's not my favorite story arch.
