The Sandman Book Three (Paperback)
From the award-winning writer of American Gods and Coraline, The Sandman is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time. Neil Gaimain's award-winning masterpiece set the standard for mature, lyrical fantasy in the modern comics era.
Illustrated by an exemplary selection of the medium's most gifted artists, the series is a rich blend of modern and ancient mythology in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven.
In this third volume—drawn by artists Jill Thompson, Vince Locke, Bryan Talbot, and P. Craig Russell—Delirium, youngest of the extended family known as the Endless, prevails upon her brother Dream to help find their missing siblin, Destruction, and their quest draws Morpheus into a final, tragic confrontation with his son. Meanwhile, guest artists Michael Allred, Shea Anton Pensa, John Watkiss, Michael Zulli, and more provide the tall tales told on a stormy night at a remarkable inn: the World's End.
Collects stories from The Sandman #38-56 and Vertigo Preview #1, including the story arcs "Brief Lives" and "Worlds' End," among others.
