The Sandman: Season of Mistsby Neil Gaiman
Synopses & Reviews
Season of Mists is the fourth volume in the story of The Sandman.
When Morpheus, the Sandman, embarks on a journey into Hell to retrieve the soul of a longtime lover, Lucifer decides to abdicate his throne. The key to Hell is handed to Morpheus, who must decide from a long line of candidates including Norse and Egyptian gods, the Fairy folk, and a number of lesser demons to whom the rule of Hell should be passed.
"Far and above the most inventive and most human comic of the decade."
-- Samuel R. Delany
"Along with all else, Sandman is a comic strip for intellectuals and I say it's about time." Norman Mailer
"Sandman is a story about story, a myth about myth, a postmodern metafiction with word balloons."
-- Charles Shaar Murray, The Independent
"Gaiman has invented, out of whole cloth, a mythology not just of the comics but of storytelling itself."
-- Frank McConnell, Commonweal Magazine
Volume 4 of the hardcover reissue of collections of THE SANDMAN, featuring the new trade dress designed by Dave McKean for the trade-paperback edition. In addition to reprinting THE SANDMAN #21-28, this stunning volume features an introduction by Harlan Ellison.
