The Sandman: Fables & Reflections (The Sandman, #6)

@ Neil Gaiman, P. Craig Russell
(fantasy, comics)

THE SANDMAN is the most acclaimed and award-winning comics series of the 1990s for good reason: a smart and deeply brooding epic, elegantly penned by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by a rotating cast of comics' most sought-after artists, it is a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven. The saga of THE SANDMAN encompasses a series of tales unique in graphic literature and is a story you will never forget.

FABLES & REFLECTIONS follows the Lord of Dreams through nine remarkable tales as he touches lives from the mists of the past to the nightmares of the present. In these episodes, kings and spies, emperors and actors, ravens and werewolves all share their stories and their dreams -- dreams of life and love, and of power and darkness.

FABLES & REFLECTIONS is the sixth volume of eleven in THE SANDMAN LIBRARY. These books can be read in order or as individual volumes.
