I must admit I stopped paying attention to what Neil Gaiman was writing after American gods so was quite surprised to find this new Sandman collection in the library. I have always preferred Neil's comics to his novels but I must admit I found this a little disapointing. The collection was a story for each endless. It seemed like Neil still doesn't quite know what to do with Destruction (linking his story with more Delerium) and Destiny's part was tiny. Overall I think Despair's was the best. Not a story but just a collection of incidents and people at their end with disturbing images to go with it. I also liked Delerium's story, but then I admit she is my favourite. Dream's story was quite interesting, a very early tale of the Endless. Death's was ok though I think it was ruined by the artist who drew death looking too different and much less cute than normal. The great thing for me about the Sandman comics were the ordinary people whose lives got caught up with the extra ordinary. There really didn't feel like that much here and most of the stories just seemed too short and too shallow. Definitely prefer the earlier stories....Continua
Some different short stories, one for every Endless.
The stories about Death, Delirium, Desire, Dream and Destiny are very very good.
But I dislike the Destruction and Despair's ones.
Quitely arts on Destiny short story are wonderful.
