The spell has been broken, the dream has ended. Well, at least, for now.
I was really surprised at how weak the writing was in this volume; it felt more like a spin-off than part of the actual series. Dream was barely present; he was more of a side character, only appearing briefly in the series...

I have read the first five volumes of The Sandman, and so far this is only my third favorite (after A Doll's House and Seasons of Mist). Its development is somewhat muddy, its narrative too crowded with characters, and it is somewhat removed from the central myth of Sandman and the theological an...

I love Barbie. I love Wanda. I love Thessaly.
Truly, this was one hell of a tightly-woven story including inner-worlds, cuckoo birds, ancient witches, pulling down the moon, and death.
There's no way in hell that I could really boil it down to essentials. As a whole it seriously rocks and hits me i...

A Game of You, the 5th volume in the Sandman series, is my favorite so far. One thing I've noticed Gaiman is very good at is picking up little threads he dropped in previous stories and building on them (this was one of my favorite things about Buffy; there's nothing more rewarding for a viewer/r...

The Sandman series goes from strength to strength, capable of reinventing itself with each new collection. Morpheus is mostly absent at the start of A Game of You , but that's all right, as the new characters prove interesting enough without his presence. The story takes place partly in a New Y...

In the next ten months of reading all of its volumes or so, I didn't really think it was possible for me to fall in love with The Sandman. I knew I was already a fan since The Doll's House, but my appreciation and affection for Gaiman's work were not as intense or as consuming as I initially thou...

This came into my bookstore and I hadn't read it in a couple years, plus it's the one with the transwoman in it, and I was feeling emotionally vulnerable. So bring it on!
So... yeah. So when I was a little kid I read this and it was like, I was a baby transsexual and all I knew about it was that...

"It's like we fell down the rabbit hole, woke up in... I don't know. Stephen King's basement..." (Wanda to George's head) (91)
I love how Gaiman brings back former characters, and is able to intertwine them all. The overarching story has also moved along, ever so slightly. The last three volumes...

Στον πρώτο τόμο της σειράς ο συντάκτης και έχων το γενικό πρόσταγμα αυτού του εγχειρήματος, Karen Burger, μιλάει για την εξέλιξη αυτής του Sandman. Κανείς δεν περίμενε πόσο πετυχημένη θα γίνει. Αλλά κανείς δεν μπορούσε ούτε καν να συνειδητοποιήσει την ιδιαίτερη πορεία που θα ακολουθούσε η αφήγηση...
