The Sandman Companion: A Dreamer's Guide to the Award-Winning Comic Series Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sandman was a groundbreaking and award-winning series that told the dark and tragic tale of Morpheus, the King of Dreams. A fascinating mythology of horror and consequence, this epic masterfully combined intriguing literature with captivating art.

The Sandman Companion is an exhaustive guide to this legend. Revealing hitherto undisclosed information and behind-the-scenes secrets, this book features in-depth interviews, never-before-seen illustrations, character origins, and story explanations and analysis. Also including excerpts from the original proposal for the series, this handbook is the perfect complement to the Sandman graphic novels.

Review:

"[T]he finest book for the reader committed to uncovering more about [the Sandman's] world is still Hy Bender's Sandman Companion." Iain Emsley, The Guardian (U.K.)

Review:

"[A] book that no Sandman reader is going to want to be without. Hy Bender has assembled the most comprehensive series of interviews, behind-the-scenes insights, factoids, and juicy tidbits that any Sandman fan could desire....Wonderfully done." Brett Brooks, Comic Shop News

Synopsis:

A softcover edition of the popular in-depth guide to the acclaimed Neil Gaiman-scripted The Sandman, including interviews with Gaiman and many of the artists involved with the series.

Synopsis:

Following the phenomenal success of the Sandman Library comes this essential guide for the Sandman devotee as well as new readers. The centerpiece of The Sandman Companion is an in-depth interview with writer/creator Neil Gaiman, who discusses the intricate plots, compelling characters, and subtle symbolism that abound in the Sandman series. Profusely illustrated with art from the Sandman Library.
