The Sandman: Volume 5: A Game of You Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Game of You is the fifth volume in the story of The Sandman.

A departure in style and tone for the series, as Morpheus, King of Dreams, takes a supporting role. A mix of several fiction genres, from fantasy to horror, A Game of You features a doll-like protagonist named Barbie, her pre-operative transsexual neighbor, a lesbian couple (Hazel and Foxglove, who also appear in Gaiman's Death graphic novels), talking animals, and a severed head.

Review:

"Neil Gaiman is, simply put, a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him in any medium." Stephen King

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:

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

Synopsis:

The new hardcover reprintings of THE SANDMAN (featuring the numbered trade dress designed by Dave McKean for the trade-paperback editions) continue with this volume, reprinting THE SANDMAN #32-37. The line between reality and fantasy is blurred in this tale of gender identity, childhood, and magic.

Description:

Written by Neil Gaiman; art by Shawn McManus, Colleen Doran, Bryan Talbot, and various; painted cover by Dave McKean
