Book Overview

A New York Times bestseller

The Sandman is the universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming--a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who's ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus' realm--be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons.

In this epic tale, Delirium, youngest of the Endless, prevails upon the Sandman to help her find their errant brother, Destruction. But their quest will lead to a painful reunion between Morpheus and his son, Orpheus. Then, the Sandman and others are trapped in a mysterious inn while a tempest rages - and all they can do to while away the time is tell the stories of their lives. And when a young woman's baby is stolen, she turns to The Kindly Ones for vengeance - only to set off a series of events that will lead the Sandman to his ultimate fate, and the baby to find a destiny no one could have foretold.

This massive hardcover tome, over 1000 pages, collects the final 38 issues of Neil Gaiman's groundbreaking series.

Collects The Sandman #38-75 plus stories from Vertigo Jam #1 and Vertigo: Winter's Edge #3.

   The most beautiful bound book I've ever held
It's got some weight bud, she said. Story is incredible, you probably already know that this version of the book is significantly cheaper than the absolutes. The spines are embossed with gold foil, the indentions are made of paper and the embossing is done on the back of the book. FINE. Yes, go ahead and do it. You know you want to do it.

   Perfect display copy of the landmark Gaiman story that liberated a medium from gender bias
Well-constructed, designed for display and being the middle of Neil Gaiman's magnum opus, the Omnibus is the clear choice for the die-hard fan with the money to spend.

   Shameful quality of the binding.
The volume I received was defective and could be heard separating from the cover the first time it was opened. I've attached a photo of both that day and the one today. This is a review of the volume 2 edition only, which I promptly returned. I still can't get over the fact that the Sandman series will always be a favorite of mine.

   Tremendous
The large format makes the work look really pop, and the content can't be matched. Some of the greatest comic writers of all time.

   A Truly Beautiful Volume
Even with all the book's faults, Gaiman's Sandman series stands in a class by itself. Some have said they felt threatened by the binding. BetaDefender has not encountered any problems with the client, Sosa said. Only once has I read through it, and I have only skimmed through it, she said.

   The book arrived falling apart..
I LOVE the Sandman series so this review is nothing against the story or artwork itself, so the way the book was put together was more impressive. The first volume arrived perfect, the binding was right and the book was in pristine condition, but this one arrived intact. The glue is undone on the spine of the book, there are tears and rips between the binding of the spine and the cover.

   A must have for any Sandman or Neil Gaiman fan.
This omnibus contains all the issues of the first volume, plus the companion volume. Neither the Sandman nor the Dreamhunter comic book series were written by Robert Crais. The orginal price of this volume was 150.00 U.S. dollars so it's a blessing to get cheaper everywhere. But if you can find it cheaper, it's still worth the money. Its a big heavy bound collection that would make any Sandman fan happy, Tunick said.

   Great story brought down by sub par binding.
Every time I open this book, I fear it may be the last. If you're reading this you're obviously interested in Sandman already, so I won't waste your time talking about the story. It's great to be back home, said Gillian, who lives in Twickenham. Even if it's more expensive, I would recommend getting the absolute editions.

   Mr. Sandman Send Me A Dream- In A Better Format
Wraps up the second half of the Sandman saga in the second volume, a much more rugged and interesting presentation in this hardcover edition compared to the mass market paperbacks. Great looking shelf, Mr. D. Pepper said. Worth having even if you've read the story once because of the many references Gaiman threw into it.
