The Sandman graphic novels are absolutely the most wonderful piece of fiction I have ever had the pleasure of reading. If you are a book junkie, and have an eye for fabulous artistry, then Sandman is 4u!!!!

This is a great graphic novel, and is a fitting almost-end to the Sandman series. I loved it.

Truly ties up alost every loose end and answers nearly all questions left unanswered thru the entire run of the series. It is well worth reading the other books (all of which are also top-notch) just to get to enjoy this wonderful penultimate chapter of the Sandman.

I absolutely love the Sandman series and picked up #9 with great anticipation. The climax of the Sandman story, it is as complex and beautifully told as you can expect from the mind of Neil Gaiman. The Sandman series will take your imagination and your heart to unexpected places, both dark and intensely beautiful. This volume provides a satisfying conclusion to the series (though it is not the last volume, it is the crux of the story). My only dissapointment was the art of this volume. Every other volume of Sandman has been wonderfully drawn, but this left something to be desired. Half the enjoyment of Sandman is looking at the compelling art of the world and characters - Morpheus in his torn robes and the adorable Goth-chick Death. This art was poor by comparison. I actually had to flip ahead to see if the whole volume was like that (it is). It lessened my enjoyment of this otherwise excellent volume. Everyone should read Sandman. It is a wonderful and epic read, and this volume (despite the art) still deserves 5 stars.

In this volume of the Sandman, they tell the story of Dram, and other things surrounding him, and Neil Gaiman did such an amazing job, truly, a great work of art.
