APL Ruiz's resident authority on comics has called Watchmen "the Citizen Kane of graphic novels" and I agree it's a staggering achievement, but I now think The Sandman reaches farther and deeper.
This volume features some of the most iconic comic artwork in history by Kelley Jones, along with continuing the tale of the most critically acclaimed comic book series in history.
Not for kids, every single volume of the Sandman graphic novels packs a punch to the gut leaving one with endless questions about life, philosophy, morality, and mortality- along with bewilderment and puzzlement on just how a long running comic book series could possibly be amongst the greatest literature ever written in any medium.
Loved it of course! I love seeing the rest of the Endless! They add a whole other element to his stories
One of the best comics ever and as a comic 5 stars.
I have nothing but praise for neil gaiman and the sandman series every chapter of this book and the previous volumes were perfect
So what happens when Lucifer decides to quit, and the gates of Hell are closed? Where do the dead go? Where indeed does Lucifer go? These questions are all answered in Season of Mists, and answered to my great satisfaction. Gaiman has once again provided a story that makes the reader think on a wider scale, but he also never hesitates to give us an appreciation of the smaller moments in life, be it the birth of a baby or a beautiful sunset
Volume four of the collected Sandman series contains a most excellent story. Dream goes to hell to retrieve someone he condemned there 10,000 years ago. Lucifer is waiting for his return and has an unexpected surprise. Suddenly Dream finds himself in possession of more than he bargained for, and representatives from many branches of mythology are vying for his favour. A unique, well written story that is worth the time and will leave you pondering many themes brought up during the tale.
Another excellent Sandman volume. I can only wish I read this as they were published.
One of the biggest things about this series is how Gaiman made all the characters so very real and individual, and we see in this his very apt and precise view of the Devil (who, incidentally, became my favourite characters in the series after I read this). Lucifer also has a series on his on, entitled "Lucifer", by Mike Carey, which is fantastic also.
