The Sandman: Volume 9: The Kindly Ones

The Sandman: Volume 9: The Kindly Ones Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Kindly Ones is the ninth volume in the epic saga of The Sandman.

The penultimate chapter finds Morpheus, Lord of Dreams, paying the price for his many painful choices and unwise decisions throughout the series. A vengeful goddess unleashes the wrath of the Furies (the Kindly Ones) upon the Sandman. Past characters return, previous storylines unite, and the fate of The Dreaming is decided in an explosive and unforgettable climax that is as inevitable as it is heart-rending.

Review:

"Neil Gaiman is, simply put, a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him in any medium. His fecundity, coupled with the overall quality of his work, is both wonderful and a little intimidating....This is challenging stuff....Sophisticated storytelling on a level practiced by Raymond Carver, Joyce Carol Oates, or (and perhaps this is closer to the mark) John Fowles." Stephen King, from his Introduction to Worlds' End

Review:

"The greatest epic in the history of comic books..." Steve Erickson, Los Angeles Times Magazine

Review:

"With the help of some of the world's leading comic artists, Gaiman adroitly blends the fantastic and the down-to-earth, the whimsical and the horrific, in a fictional playground that encompasses serial killers, Shakespeare, AIDS, and angels in a huge, ongoing storyline. [It is] rather as if Clive Barker had rewritten Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City." The List

Review:

"Along with all else, Sandman is a comic strip for intellectuals and I say it's about time." Norman Mailer

Review:

"A deftly realized classical tragedy, full of epic struggles and tantalizing throwaway lines. It sets an extremely high watermark for graphic storytelling." San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle

Review:

"Neil Gaiman's Sandman has been extravagantly praised — and with good reason. Somehow, the tales tap into a vein of myth that has always been there, hiding beneath the surface." SFX Magazine

Review:

"[The Kindly Ones artist Marc Hempel's] ability to nail a character in just two or three lines — the expression, the gesture, the mood — is amazing." P. Craig Russell

Synopsis:

Volume IX of THE SANDMAN is printed in a new hardcover, reflecting the trade dress of the current library of SANDMAN trade paperbacks. Reprinting THE SANDMAN #57-69 and the Sandman story from VERTIGO JAM #1, Morpheus must face the consequences for the murder of his own son.
