New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman''s
transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive
Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic
storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces
that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology,
folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative
In PRELUDES & NOCTURNES, an occultist attempting to capture
Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream
instead. After his 70 year imprisonment and eventual escape, Dream,
also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of
power. On his arduous journey Morpheus encounters Lucifer, John
Constantine, and an all-powerful madman.
This book also includes the story "The Sound of Her Wings,"
which introduces us to the pragmatic and perky goth girl Death.
Includes issues 1-8 of the original series with completely new
coloring, approved by the author.
