A comic. Written by Neil Gaiman. Art by Various. Cover by Dave McKean.
The third volume collecting Neil Gaiman's seminal, award-winning series
starring the Dream King in deluxe format. Absolute Sandman Vol. 3 presents several key SANDMAN tales in a slipcased hardcover edition,
including ”Brief Lives,” in which the Sandman's sister Delirium prevails
upon her older brother to help her find their missing sibling,
Destruction. But their journey through the Waking World has dramatic
repercussions for their family and also for the relationship between the
Sandman and his wayward son, Orpheus. Also included is the spectacular
short story ”Ramadan,” a tale of a young king of ancient Baghdad and the
deal he strikes with The Sandman to grant his city immortality, with
spectacular illustrations by P. Craig Russell (Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, The Jungle Book).
Never-before-collected bonus features include pin-up pages from galleries in The Sandman #50 and Sandman Special #1, the Desire story from Vertigo: Winter's Edge #3, The Endless Gallery #1, script and thumbnails from The Sandman #50, and a section on the Endless retail products (poster, statues, t-shirts, Little Endless and more)! Plus, an introduction by artist Jill Thompson.
Neil Gaiman (born 1960) is a messy-haired author, whose books and comics have won many awards. Despite being English, he lives more in America than he does anywhere else in the world.
