Re Read 1320Just as good as the previous reads Original ReviewI have to say I enjoyed this much better the second time around Both times I really got a kick out of the Crowley sidestory and I still have no idea who or what the original sandman comic was all about nor do I particularly care but this reimagining is a real work of artIt's not even the art per se although I did enjoy seeing Bowie as Satan It fits him so well It was the story It seemed to stumble about for a short while as 70 years of imprisonment turned a very old god into a shadow but once he was released we had the real power of myth awaken and we suddenly had a uest to Regain Powerful Artifacts including John Constantine representing normal human worlds Satan representing hell and Doctor Dee representing dreams all made perfectly real Each success returned Dream to his former glory and established a truly epic worldbuilding experienceIf everything is possible then what is necessaryThe answer A good night's sleep PossiblyOh hell I know what's going to happen later This has made me almost impossibly giddy to revisit it Welcome home Dream

Ar os artefactos místicos ue lhe foram subtraídos – o pó dos sonhos o seu elmo e a pedra dos sonhos – fundamentais para poder cumprir os seus propósitosA sua busca ainda convalescente e fraco pelo tempo ue levou longe deles levá lo á ao próprio Inferno – ue não existiria se os seus “prisioneiros não pudessem sonhar com o Paraíso” e a cruzar se com a Liga da Jus. Mr Gaiman thank you for the dream See what I did there But in all fairness this is a dream This comic is just everything I want a comic to be It’s dark and brutal; it’s profound and sophisticated it’s imaginative and creative I just love everything about it It’s superb Let’s begin with the characters Dream So the protagonist is a god a very old god And he represents one of the key elements of life itself hope He is everything the mind longs for He is the reason to carry on living Dream walks in the darkness He comes from the darkness and brings the light However such an entity has been brought down by the folly of humans He’s been locked away and his power sought after The world is in turmoil; thus the story begins As Dream seeks the stolen relics of his power the depth of this world is slowly revealed Lucifer Morningstar Although Lucifer isn’t a major character in this volume I do feel like he is being forshadowed as a later antagonist in this series Well at least I hope he is I love the rendition of Lucifer here He is very much in the Miltonic vein Proud and beautiful yet twisted beyond repair One of his minions has a relic of Dream’s and although the two are hospitable towards each other the words speak of veiled threats and a violent past I can’t wait to see Lucifer and Dream philosophising the sovereignty of hell Give me Death So Death is a gothic girl who oozes with nihilism She’s a rock chick who is clearly rather badass She’s Dream’s sister and is rather pissed off that he didn’t call on her for help Why are these characters so fucking cool I could spend all day reading about this lot Did I just find a new favourite comic series

I thought it was time I added The Sandman It fits precisely into my systematic program of reading “Hold on” I can hear all you folks out there saying “ Your 'systematic program of reading' Why you're one of the most eclectic readers I know”I can understand why you might feel that way but there is a little method to my madness Although it is true that some of the books I read progressive political analyzes slim 20th century verse collections cat books classic spiritual treatises or the occasional literary novel do not fit within my grand plan most of them doAbout ten years ago I realized that many books I liked were from emerging belittled or despised forms or genres the Elizabethan popular stage play the budding 18th century novel the gothic romance the Victorian bourgeois novel published in serial form the novel of sensation the decadent experiment the adventure tale the sea story the spy story the ghost story the pulps both mystery and terror the space opera and other science fiction and fantasy of the '50's the detective novel and the modern horror tale Whereas the writers of “literary fiction” are often too concerned with critical opinion judiciously curbing their personal obsessions and producing unreadable “writerly” prose the humble genre writer is likely to give his “inner crazy” free rein and either tell his eccentric story in no nonsense fashion or on occasion let his plots and prose burgeon untrammeled like a blooming meadow garden At worst the result is amusing or odd; at best it is something original something newNot long ago it occurred to me that—being too much a creature of words—I had neglected an obvious example of an emerging genre the comic book of the late 80's on its way to becoming the “graphic novel” Since I'm already in love with Gaiman's American Gods I decided to begin with The SandmanI am glad I did The first eight numbers of Gaiman's series are on the surface a traditional uest story Morpheus Lord of the Dreamworld imprisoned for years by a sorcerer goes searching for the objects of power—his helmet his jewel his pouch of dream dust—so that he may once again exercise full power over his realm But the stories it tells and the genres in touches range widely from an Edwardian tale of an Aleister Crowley type sorcerer a pulp EC Horror Cain and Abel anecdote a contemporary British horror story of drug abuse through a mythic descent into hell featuring an epic duel with demons until it climaxes in a ghastly ordeal of modern horror with a little meta fiction thrown in in which an escaped madman in a diner in possession of the Dream Lord's mind manipulating jewel brutalizes the restaurant's clientele for hours The final number “The Sound of Her Wings”—perhaps the most elegant of the eight—is however a kind of whimsical coda introducing us to Dream's sister the irreverent and down to earth DeathI thought everything about this saga—story dialogue art—was well executedexcept for one small detail Gaiman chooses to make a reference to the DC universe the Justice League of America to be precise in a way that breaks the spell of what otherwise would be a completely self contained transcendent and mythic journey But that's the kind of thing that's bound to happen in emerging genres People take risksAnyway I'm hooked On to Sandman Volume 2 “The Doll's House”
