      Moje prekrasno i epsko putovanje Snivanjem je zavrsenoUtjehu cu potraziti u Beskrajnim nocima Sto se ovog sveska tice, divno je zaokruzena prica Svaka ima svoj neki stil, ali me radnjom podsjeca na prvu knjigu, ali je jos savrsenija, ako je to uopce zamislivo Crtez Michaela Zullija je ljubav cista Vecina likova iz ove sage je dosla mahnuti citatelji ca ma i bilo je zbilja posebno Vrijedilo je svake stranice i dao mi je tako puno Sad idem intenzivno osjecati sjetu

      Genuinely depressed that this is over Sandman was just one of those reading experiences, where you can t wait to find out what happens next but you re worried that you ll finish it too soon It s been a while that I read a book where I was completely immersed in a new world, so much so that I wish I didn t have to go back to mine I m not much of a graphic novel reader so I didn t expect to have this reaction with Sandman but I was totally wrong Gaiman really shows the depth of his imagination, as [...]

      I read a third of this last night with a mug of cider and a few chunks of coffee cake I got up at five this morning and came downstairs to finish it The house was dark and I didn t turn on the light in the living room because I didn t want to disturb the dog, so I felt my way down the stairs in my stockinged feet The door into the bedroom opened and closed behind me, and I stopped, and waited Hello I said Daddy, said a sleepy six year old voice right behind me I wasn t mad keen on the idea of a [...]

      The stories were fantastic This was one of the very best ends to a series ever, as much as I didn t want it to end Really masterful and surprisingly satisfying The two story arcs, The Kindly Ones and The Wake, were perfect It left me feeling OK with the ending instead of depressed that it was over, quite a feat The extra pieces that were included at the end were OK I think they included them because if you re collecting the entire Absolute everything of the series they need to actually include e [...]

      As positive as I ve been about the rest of the series, I must confess that The Kindly Ones is one of those stories where stopping just isn t an option I made the mistake of starting it late at night, and, as a result, I couldn t stop myself from staying awake until I reached the beginning of The Wake To say that Gaiman is masterful at pulling together all the disparate, loose threads found in the previous fifty odd issues is an understatement, and the story he creates is both cosmically epic and [...]

      Perfect ending to the story Pure genius, both the writing and the art.

      4.5 stars for me I had such a blast reading this series, and with the last one everything came together in a almost perfect ending, but after the last ending came a little short story, wich i did not really as an ending, still this is one of the best reading experiences of the year, if your a fan of Graphic Novels, i highly recommend this Also shout out to my raven Matthew hillarious.

      I have just attended the wake of a character I first met about two years ago I did not grieve, in the sense of experiencing feelings of sadness But I did ponder the journey of this character and my relationship with him and his world When I began reading The Sandman a couple of years ago, I did so with great anticipation for this most highly lauded of continuing comics stories With the first two volumes, I could see how far the creators were reaching With so much good said about the series, I wa [...]

      I read books backwards when I am upset I have never actually admitted that before because I always feel guilty when I do it With good books, it turns out that it doesn t matter much if a book is read forward or backward I mean, of course if alters the flow of the story, but there are still plot development, character development, and suspense Sometimes books are less predictable when read backwards because instead of things leading up to an outcome, one wonders what would cause a character to do [...]

      And so it comes to the endThe first half of this final volume of the Absolute editions is the story of The Kindly Ones Remember poor Hippolyta She finally leaves Daniel with a sitter one night, but of course this means he is kidnapped The police tells her that they found a body and Hippolyta undergoes a bit of a mental break She goes on a quest to the Kindly Ones, wanting revenge against Dream as she is sure that he is responsible for her son s death As Dream killed his son in the previous volum [...]

      I gave all previous volumes of The Absolute Sandman four stars, because that s what I felt they deserved Volume Four is a little different, in that it deserves somewhere between 65 and 80 stars, not to mention three medals, two trophies and a monument.Holy crap, this book was amazing.We start off with The Castle, which is a shorter story from Vertigo Jam 1 that basically takes the reader on a tour of the dreaming It s not really necessary to anyone who s been keeping up with the series, but it s [...]

      For all the world building and storyweaving, the resonance and layers, for a myth to become epic, it has to end Gaiman is clearly a student of myth and legend, and knows this well So it was that Sandman had to resolve It s an incredible conclusion, pulling strands from across the five year run of the comic together, some obvious, some obscure, and building an inevitable end for Morpheus, the lord of dreams Like the grand, enduring sagas it has joined, Sandman s ending is tragic, painful, and her [...]

      How do you wrap up a series like this This is the fourth and final volume of a series that spanned millennia and dimensions, through the course we have met William Shakespeare, G K Chesterton, Batman, the Emperor of America, Cain and Able, Odin, Lucifer, Puck, many , not I mention the Dreamlord s own family Destiny, Death Destruction, Desire, Despair, Delusion or Delight The stories took place all throughout history, inside various fairy tales or other well known stories, in the realm of Dream a [...]

      It is books like these which make you believe in D ream no pun intended It is that brilliantly written Every chapter, every page, every dialogue takes your breath away good thing I am at least of fifth heightening, eh The amount of reference to pop culture is insane You don t pay attention to a dialogue and chances are that two references have slipped by you And that is part of what makes the book so rich.About the characters, you fall in love with Dream is kind of inevitable , you admire and lo [...]

    18. Cléverton Bezerra on said:

      Throughout the whole Sandman series, Gaiman approched the story with a different kind of point of view and touch In the beginning it dealt strongly with horror, then it got into pure fantasy, mixing history and magic and, even though while reading it is not automatically noticeable, this whole approach modification is a result of the changes that Morpheus himself faces along the 75 volumes of Sandam And this last volume is the most dramatically poingeant, humanly written and bittersweet one It s [...]

      At the end, Shakespeare wrote the Tempest and then, fighting to stay asleep, wishing it would go on for ever, sure that once the dream was over, it would never come back you woke up The WakeThe ninth volume is an EPIC 13 issues, and how This is the best if one can really qualify it as such of the series Why Everything comes together, and it s never inorganic Even the strand that feels like it has least to do with the main thread where the baby, Daniel, is taken away and his mother swears vengean [...]

      What A comic book Does that even count as a real book I would submit, based upon reviews and awards given through two decades, that it does Could be even than a real book Many superlatives are thrown the The Sandman s way, and I see why I was very, very impressed with the story, the writing, the art, the complexity of the plot but at its core, it s about stories This is Gaiman s wheelhouse he likes a good yarn The Sandman is one of the Endless seven eternal anthropomorphized aspects of human co [...]

      Still good Still somewhat overwritten The Kindly Ones story arc was neat but a little convoluted for my taste.

      So I ve finally been able to read the entire Sandman canon.I rejoiced when the copy arrived on my reservation shelf at the public library only a month after being published It was a year and a half ago that I realised what a beautiful and creative source of wisdom and inspiration a comic book could be Wisdom that surpassed the majority of the texts and dialogues I witnessed in every ethics class of my philosophy curriculum Stories and characters that inspire much potential Halloween costumes or [...]

      Wow Morpheus sure does become the poster boy for emo Or maybe he was all along and I didn t notice because I was distracted by other things because there are plenty of wonderful things to get distracted by here Regardless, it suits him, but it is also one of the things about him that he can t change enough to avoid the story ending the way it does Which is sad, and a little epic, and not at all how I imagined it would be but now that I ve read it I can t picture it ending another way There are a [...]
