The Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Preludes and Nocturnes is the first volume in the story of The Sandman.

Morpheus, the King of Dreams, has been held prisoner for 75 years by a wealthy madman. The world has suffered in his absence. Regaining his freedom, Morpheus must restore his deteriorated realm, The Dreaming, and recover his power, much of which resides in three stolen tools: his pouch, helmet, and ruby.

Written by Neil Gaiman.
Illustrated by Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, and Malcolm Jones III.
Introduction by Karen Berger.

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

Review:

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

Synopsis:

In stories reprinted from The Sandman #1-7, the Lord of Dreams is freed from decades-long imprisonment and seeks to reclaim his office in encounters with John Constantine, the Justice League of America, and more.
