Synopses & Reviews
is the final volume in the story of The Sandman
The King of Dreams is dead long live the King of Dreams. Now ancient gods, old friends, and enemies gather to pay tribute and to remember, in the strangest wake ever held. The echoes of the death reverberate: we see them touch a man who will not die, and a Chinese sage whose path into exile takes him through a desert of dreams. And, at the end of his life, William Shakespeare fufills his side of a very strange bargain.
The Endless deal with the death of Morpheus in this trade paperback collection. Reprinting The Sandman #70-75, The Wake features the moving final issue of the series, "The Tempest," and an introduction by journalist Mikal Gilmore.
Written by Neil Gaiman; art by Michael Zulli, John J Muth and Charles Vess; cover by Dave McKean; Introduction by Mikal Gilmore.
