Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brief Lives is the seventh volume in the story of The Sandman.

Delirium, youngest of the extended family known as the Endless, prevails upon her brother Dream (the Sandman) to help find their missing sibling, Destruction. Their odyssey through the world of the waking and the final confrontation with Destruction — plus the resolution of Dream's painful relationship with his son, Orpheus — will change the Endless forever.

Review:

"Brief Lives is as exciting and understatedly emotional as all the other Sandman stories — fantasy fables of modern life and the Endless....Gaiman exists on a plane all his own. His depth, range, and command of narrative cannot be bettered." Preview

Review:

"Demanding, sophisticated, literate, wise, allusive, human, humane, sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, thought-provoking, funny, often moving, and peopled with intriguing and memorable characters....Brief Lives is about as good as fantasy writing gets." Interzone

Review:

"This is a fairytale for adults, a bit like Edward Scissorhands with attitude. The writing is of the highest quality and the artwork, by Jill Thompson and Vince Locke, is stunning..." Lancashire Evening Post

Review:

"[D]riven by sharply drawn characters...[Gaiman's] knack for capturing the patterns of intimacy, even in an otherworldly setting, can be affecting. Thompson and Locke contribute subtle and vividly colored drawings, rendered in an awkward but agile line." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

The Sandman is the most acclaimed and award-winning comics series of the 1990s for good reason. A smart and deeply brooding epic, elegantly penned by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by a rotating cast of comics' most sought-after artists, it is a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven. The saga of The Sandman encompasses a series of tales unique in graphic literature, and is a story you will never forget.

Synopsis:

The Lord of Dreams is led by his sister, Delirium, on a desperate search for their brother, Destruction.

The art, the ideas, the emotion...this is my favorite Sandman, though I admit to loving the others as well. Delirium is a delight to observe, and her ramblings never grow old to me. I wish I had the money to buy the whole collection, but I'd choose this one over any of the others if I had to.
