THE SANDMAN, written by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, THE SANDMAN is also widely considered one of the most original and artistically ambitious series of the modern age. By the time it concluded in 1996, it had made significant contributions to the artistic maturity of comic books and become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right.

Now, DC Comics is proud to present this comics classic in an all-new Absolute Edition format. The first of four beautifully designed slipcased volumes, THE ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOL. 1 collects issues 1-20 of The Sandman and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, on the first 18 issues, as well as a host of never-before-seen extra material, including the complete original Sandman Proposal, a gallery of character designs from Gaiman and the artists who originated the look of the Sandman, and the original script to the World Fantasy Award-winning THE SANDMAN #19, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," together with reproductions of the issue's original pencils by Charles Vess. Also included are a new introduction by DC's president Paul Levitz and a new afterword by Gaiman.

    There is nothing to say about this. It is a very good book, The text is very fine and all the draw is amazing. And this edition is so good; maybe a litle big at first but witch the time you get used. A clasic comic, you must read Sandman.

    Poco hay que decir de este cómic. Es muy bueno, el guión es genial y el dibujo increíble. La edición también es muy buena; quizás un poco grande al principio pero te acostumbras. Un clásico, tienes que leerlo.

    Dite che è solo un fumetto...

    E invece io vi dico che Sandman è paragonabile alle opere di Spiegelman (chi è? MAUS), a quelle di Eisner, a quelle di quegli autori, insomma, che nel fumetto hanno infuso la vita e la forza del romanzo, o del teatro, facendone Genere Letterario e no ...(continue)

    E invece io vi dico che Sandman è paragonabile alle opere di Spiegelman (chi è? MAUS), a quelle di Eisner, a quelle di quegli autori, insomma, che nel fumetto hanno infuso la vita e la forza del romanzo, o del teatro, facendone Genere Letterario e non mero intrattenimento. Nelle pagine dell'opera di Gaiman, magistralmente disegnate da tanti grandissimi (uno su tutti Dave McKean), ci sono perle splendenti di rara bellezza. Solo ad esempio, il duello tra il Signore dei Sogni e il demone Choronzon.
    Leggerlo e rileggerlo. E poi rileggerlo ancora.

    "I am anti-life, the best judgement. I am the dark at the end of everything. The end of universes, gods, worlds... of everything. Sss. And what will you be then, Dreamlord?"
    "I am hope."

    Sandman is the best representative comic book of '90 DC/Vertigo alternative comics for mature readers.

    Probably Neil Gaimann most impressive work ever. Dark, creative, with wonderfull narrative power.

    This new edition is a really valuable one. Four big format hardcover, prestige volumes with all Sandman series. If you never read it, don't lose it now.
