About the Author

Neil Gaiman won the Hugo Award for his New York Times bestselling novel American Gods, and his bestselling children's book Coraline has been praised all over the world. But before Neil became a blockbuster prose novelist, he was best known as the creator and author of the DC Comics revolutionary comic book series The Sandman.

Critically acclaimed and award-winning, Neil's Sandman set new standards for comics as literature; the ten-volume Sandman library is recognized as one of the medium's greatest achievements.

Series Description

Before becoming a New York Times best-selling author with books like American Gods and Coraline, Neil Gaiman revolutionized the comic-book arena with The Sandman. The most acclaimed and award-winning comics series of the last decade, the ten volumes of The Sandman are a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven.
