Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sandman is the most acclaimed and award-winning comics series of the 1990s for good reason. A smart and deeply brooding epic, elegantly penned by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by a rotating cast of comics' most sought-after artists, it is a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven. The saga of The Sandman encompasses a series of tales unique in graphic literature, and is a story you will never forget.

Review:

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

Review:

"Nothing less than a popular culture masterpiece, and a work that is braver, smarter, and more meaningful than just about anything 'high culture' has produced during the same period." Mikal Gilmore, author of Shot In the Heart

Review:

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

Review:

"Far and above the most inventive and most human comic of the decade." Samuel R. Delany

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

Synopsis:

Featuring the popular characters from the award-winning Sandman series by Neil Caiman, THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS reveals the legend of the Endless, a family of magical and mythical beings who exist and interact in the real world. Born at the beginning of time, Destiny, Death, Dream, Desire, Despair, Delirium, and Destruction are seven brothers and sisters who each lord over their respective realms. In this highly imaginative book that boasts a diverse styles of breathtaking art, these seven peculiar and powerful siblings each reveal more about their true being as they star in their own tales of curiosity and wonder. THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS was the first comic graphic novel to be listed on the NY Times Best-seller list. SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.

Synopsis:

Worlds' End is the eighth volume in the story of The Sandman.
Caught in the vortex of a reality storm, wayfarers from throughout time, myth, and the imagination converge on a mysterious inn. In the tradition of Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, as the travellers all wait out the tempest that rages around them, they share stories of the places they've been, the things they've seen...and those that they've dreamed.
