Collecting The Sandman #1–8, 1988–1989. Written by Neil Gaiman. Art by Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, and Malcolm Jones III.
A wizard attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. Fearful for his safety, the wizard kept him imprisoned in a glass bottle for decades. After his escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power. On the way, Morpheus encounters Lucifer and demons from Hell, the Justice League, and John Constantine, the Hellblazer. This book also includes the story ”The Sound of Her Wings” which introduces us to the pragmatic and perky goth girl, Death.
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.
