Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Wake is the final volume in the story of The Sandman.

The King of Dreams is dead — long live the King of Dreams. Now ancient gods, old friends, and enemies gather to pay tribute and to remember, in the strangest wake ever held. The echoes of the death reverberate: we see them touch a man who will not die, and a Chinese sage whose path into exile takes him through a desert of dreams. And, at the end of his life, William Shakespeare fufills his side of a very strange bargain.

Review:

"The Wake is a sober, somber conclusion — literally, a dying fall — to a sequence that undeniably constitutes a major achievement. There is nothing quite like it anywhere else." Charles Shaar Murray, The Independent

Review:

"Nothing less than a popular culture masterpiece, and a work that is braver, smarter, and more meaningful than just about anything 'high culture' has produced during the same period." Mikal Gilmore, author of Shot In the Heart

Review:

"The greatest epic in the history of comic books..." Steve Erickson, Los Angeles Times Magazine

Review:

"Neil Gaiman is, simply put, a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him in any medium. His fecundity, coupled with the overall quality of his work, is both wonderful and a little intimidating....This is challenging stuff....Sophisticated storytelling on a level practiced by Raymond Carver, Joyce Carol Oates, or (and perhaps this is closer to the mark) John Fowles." Stephen King, from his Introduction to Worlds' End

Review:

"Along with all else, Sandman is a comic strip for intellectuals and I say it's about time." Norman Mailer

Synopsis:

Volume X of THE SANDMAN is printed in a new hardcover, reflecting the trade dress of the current library of SANDMAN trade paperbacks. Reprinting THE SANDMAN #70-75, this moving collection features the ascendance of Daniel, the new Lord of Dreams, after Morpheus's death.

Description:

Written by Neil Gaiman; art by Michael Zulli, Jon J Muth and Charles Vess; painted cover by Dave McKean
