Overview

From the incomparable imagination and lucid visions of Sandman creator Neil Gaiman and acclaimed artist and director Dave McKean — and the innovative minds at The Jim Henson Company — comes MirrorMask, a breathtaking journey through a strange and magical looking-glass world where anything can happen ... and frequently does.

Here is the complete film book of the new high-water mark in family fantasy entertainment. The story of young Helena, daughter of the circus, comes vividly alive as we accompany her on her remarkable mission to a place far beyond wonder; a phantasmagorical quest to rescue a realm from the devouring forces of chaos and shadow in order to win back her stolen "real" life from a runaway interloper from the other side.

Containing the full screenplay and more than 1,700 illustrated storyboards of the major motion picture — as well as movie stills, comments, appreciations, and memories from the authors and filmmakers — this one-of-a-kind volume is destined to become a classic, a keepsake to be cherished by fans of all ages.

For all who believe in the glorious reality of dreams, for everyone who longs to ride their imagination to miraculous places, the door is now open wide. See the world anew through the MirrorMask ... and nothing will ever look the same again.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Many kids fantasize about running away to join the circus; wide-eyed 15-year-old Helena dreamed of running away from the circus and joining "real life." Born into a family of traveling performers, she longs for release. One day, she gets her wish; but like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, the topsy-turvy world she enters is more challenging than she ever imagined. Graphic novel innovators Gaiman and artist Dave McKean have created a fluid alternate universe where reality slips between our fingers and then grabs our feet. A masterful mix.

    delightful film script fairy tale

    Fifteen years old Helena works very hard in her family¿s circus. She hates her life, hoping to one day escape and become part of the real world. However, one day her wish comes true, just not her real world. She has ended up in a fantasy realm filled with mythological creatures in which two kingdoms exist in natural balance side by side. One eternally in light, the other forever in darkness. However, the harmony is gone as Helena and her double from this world beyond her imagination have switched places. To return home, Helena must restore the balance. Above is an overly simplification of the delightful fairy tale plot that is some ways will remind the audience of the Wizard of Oz. The book is not a novel, but instead the film script with story boards of Mirrormask Motion Picture. This different tome is fun to follow whether Helena is performing as a sock, working at the circus as a juggler or selling tickets, or meeting strange beings in the fantasy realm as she seeks ¿ruby slippers¿ to get back home. Interesting but not for everyone, this is an intriguing picture book that tells the fun tale, but keep in mind it is a script not a graphic novel. Appendices add understanding as the MIRRORMASK -- THE ILLUSTRATED FILM SCRIPT OF THE MOTION PICTURE FROM THE JIM HENSON COMPANY is fun family entertainment with a movie to follow in the Fall.
