A Game of You
is the fifth volume in the story of The Sandman
A departure in style and tone for the series, as Morpheus, King of Dreams, takes a supporting role. A mix of several fiction genres, from fantasy to horror, A Game of You features a doll-like protagonist named Barbie, her pre-operative transsexual neighbor, a lesbian couple (Hazel and Foxglove, who also appear in Gaiman's Death graphic novels), talking animals, and a severed head.
The new hardcover reprintings of THE SANDMAN (featuring the numbered trade dress designed by Dave McKean for the trade-paperback editions) continue with this volume, reprinting THE SANDMAN #32-37. The line between reality and fantasy is blurred in this tale of gender identity, childhood, and magic.
Written by Neil Gaiman; art by Shawn McManus, Colleen Doran, Bryan Talbot, and various; painted cover by Dave McKean
