Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Enormously appealing...clever....A tale of enduring charm...beautifully rendered. Readers who have followed Gaiman's work may be surprised by the turn he takes in The Sandman: The Dream Hunters. They should also be delighted." CNN.com

Review:

"It begins with a wager between a badger and a fox, the prize being the monk's temple that the winner will use as a den. But the fox falls in love with the monk and later, when she discovers that a lord of a nearby estate means him ill, she goes into the land of dreams and strikes a bargain with the Japanese counterpart of Morpheus to save the monk's life. How it all works out is for you to discover, but I will say that this is one of Gaiman's most exquisite and evocative stories to date. Equal praise must go to Yoshitaka Amano's artwork." Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Review:

"Gaiman's luminous prose is mirrored and amplified spectacularly by the illustrations. Yoshitaka Amano's color plates...resonate magnificently with the story. A fine art approach to comics illustration gets no finer than this." Edward Bryant, Locus

Review:

"[P]ulls off the difficult balancing act of making a tale equally accessible to new readers and to fans. For Sandman afficionados, The Dream Hunters is a beautiful new take on familiar characters. For first-time readers, [it] is an opportunity to revisit the once-upon-a-time magic of childhood tales, but with adult twists." Dallas Morning News

Synopsis:

Following in the tradition of Japanese folk tales, this graphic novel is a tale centered on ill-fated love and dream-eating monsters. Full color.
