About this deal

She’s also illustrated the works of Margaret Atwood, Anne Rice, J Michael Straczynski, Clive Barker, and official graphic novel works for legendary rock band The Doors, as well as Blondie, Melissa Etheridge, and Tori Amos. They are still as fresh and immersive today as the first time I found them, and stand up well as the pinnacle of the author's storytelling powers.

The print quality is excellent throughout, the blacks clear and crisp, the colours perfectly balanced.And I enjoyed the Kirby tribute when Dream goes to see Scott Free to assist in tracking down the gem.

Neil Gaiman is the New York Times bestselling author of the Newbery Medal-winning The Graveyard Book and Coraline , the basis for the hit movie. At the end of the book, alongside the original proposal for the series by Gaiman, is a printing of the pencilled Midsummer Night's Dream with notes from the man himself. The Sandman , written by New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. Gaiman's ability to anthropomorph concepts like dreaming or death are amazing and strangely apropos.I'm a fan of Terry Pratchett (favourite author), Tori Amos (favourite musician) and Babylon 5 (still my favourite science fiction series) - all of whom have strong Neil Gaiman connections. Also included are a new introduction by DC President and Publisher Paul Levitz and an afterword by Gaiman.

An acclaimed series it was, it had its own share of industry awards like the Eisners, but its most distinguished accolade had to be the World Fantasy award for best short fiction for Sandman issue nineteen, an adaptation of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by Gaiman and Charles Vess.

He is also the author of The Wolves in the Walls and The Day I Traded My Dad for Two Goldfish , both written for children. If you're unfamiliar with the series, but fortunate enough to find a copy of this book at your local library, relish the opportunity, and check it out with all due haste. In every instance where a face was colored in lurid, expressionist shades, we instead get a jolly, normal pink tone.
