Better than many of the original Sandman numbers. Most are tight little thought provoking stories about each of the Endless. Assumes some Sandman prior knowledge to appreciate so don't start here. ( )

7 short-ish stories about each of the Endless. Variable in quality: some good stories, some difficult to read fonts, some incomprehensible artwork ( )

Las historias eran un poco prueba y error para mi ( )

And so we come to the last of the Sandman collections that I own. I thought this one would be fascinating in that it took on each of the Endless.

And for the most part it worked very well. The art in this collection was superb and the writing, for the most part, top notch. Of the seven stories, only two didn't work for me and, interestingly, they are the two Endless I tended to find endlessly irritating. Despair and Delerium.

The Despair story...well, it wasn't really a story, more a series of impressions and vignettes. And Delerium? Unreadable.

But the other five were brilliant. ( )

Writer Neil Gaiman collaborates with seven different artists to create seven distinctly different stand-alone stories about Morpheus ("Dream") and his sisters and brothers, The Endless: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction, and Destiny.

While it would help to understand the background of the "Sandman" series of graphic novels, most of the stories stand well on their own as fantasies or fairy tales.

My favorite story is "Desire" -- a passionate and romantic tale with art by Milo Manara. ( )
