My favorite in the series thus far. The stories are poignant and the artwork is gorgeous. I'm already on the wait list for volume 4. ( )

The third massive collection of Sandman graphic novels is a very even volume, with almost every chapter telling an interesting story, many of them weaving together fabulously. The two main plot threads in this one are the tale of Orpheus, who was fathered by Dream, and of a number of travelers, stranded at the World's End Inn, telling stories to pass the time away. Dark and compelling. ( )

Again, there's little I can say about the greatness of Sandman. The contrast between the whimsy of Dream and Delirium's search for Destruction and its deadly consequences is great. I will confess that knowing the outcome of the entire Sandman story makes the stories told in the World's End feel a little bit like filler material, which is a shame, since, despite serving primarily as a setup to the story of Dream's death, those tales are some of the highlights of the series. "A Tale of Two Cities", in particular, stands out as one of my favorite moments. ( )

Covers issues 40 to 56 of the Sandman series as well as The Song of Orpheus special. Featured in this volume are two main story arcs, Brief Lives and World's End as well as a couple of other single-shot stories. The Song of Orpheus is a prequel of sorts to Brief Lives and we learn how the son of the Lord of Dreams ends up in the state he was in when featured in the last volume and of the estrangement he has with his father. Brief Lives has Delirium enlisting Dream's help in searching for their missing brother. Having being turned down first by Desire and then Despair, Delirium turns to Dream expecting the same rebuttal but is surprised when he agrees to assist. Dream, of course, has reasons of his own for going on the quest. World's End has many a tale to tell when travellers find themselves sheltering in an inn of that name to avoid the worst from a very strange storm. The other stories are The Parliament of Rooks which features Cain and Abel and Eve telling tales to a human child and Ramadan which is Gaiman's homage to the Arabian Nights.

Extras: There are a couple of galleries which feature different representations of the Endless by other artists, a short story of Desire, a feature on other products available from the Sandman range, a couple of pages on hoe the Little Endless became a fan hit, the script and thumbnails for Ramadan and a feature on the subsequent products created from that story. An afterword from Neil Gaiman and the biographies of those who worked on these issues round everything off.

Loved pretty much everything in this collection and it moves into my favourite of the 3 editions I've read so far. ( )
