3.5 *Book source ~ Library From Goodreads: Volume Four of New York Times best selling author Neil Gaiman's acclaimed creation, with updated coloring and new trade dress. Ten thousand years ago, Morpheus condemned a woman who loved him to Hell. Now the other members of his immortal family, The Endless, have convinced the Dream King that this was an injustice. To make it right, Morpheus must return to Hell to rescue his banished love - and Hell's ruler, the fallen angel Lucifer, has already sworn to destroy him. In this volume: A Season of Mists: Prologue ~ Nice! Got to meet the other Endless: Destiny, Delirium and Despair. Death and Desire had already been in other volumes. Well, except for Destruction who has left his siblings for parts unknown. A Season of Mists: Chapter 1 ~ Dream prepares for his journey to Hell and possible battle with Lucifer. A Season of Mists: Chapter 2 ~ Dream enters Hell and is surprised by what he finds. A Season of Mists: Chapter 3 ~ Others find out what Lucifer gave to Dream and they make plans of their own. A Season of Mists: Chapter 4 ~ I have no idea what this is about. A Season of Mists: Chapter 5 ~ A banquet and sneaky goings on in Dream’s castle. A Season of Mists: Chapter 6 ~ Dream makes his decision. A Season of Mists: Epilogue ~ Tying up lose ends. An interesting time for Dream. I enjoyed the story arc and I still love the artwork.

This is my fav Sandman story arc. It was interesting seeing how Morpheus interacted with his family. The look on his face when he had to face up to the fact that he acted dishonorably was great! There was a sense of finality watching as he methodically put his affairs in order. Nice to see him saying goodbye to his friend Hob. It was odd seeing Morpheus act fearfully as he faced Lucifer. Mostly Morpheus has been shown as hopeful and for the most part unstoppable. Also Lucifer acted in an unexpected manner giving up his kingdom in order to start over. I was shocked seeing Hell being depicted as being highly desirable and the mix of angels, demons, and gods assembled to gain ownership of Hell. Who knew real estate was so valuable... The art was lovely as always. Dave McKean is the best cover artist I have ever seen. Hauntingly beautiful is the best words I can summarize with. I suppose I really loved this storyline as you see a different side to characters and expectations are broken as characters are shown to have to ability to grow and change. The only downside to The Sandman is by setting the bar so high it's unlikely anyone will ever write anything as interesting. I bought The Sandman Ultimate Edition books so I could fully appreciate the beautiful artwork and highly recommend it.

I don't know if anyone can possibly get more inventive than this. The series of the Sand Man is the definition of thinking out side the box. How someone can take the many Gods of myth, along with the Devil and angels of Christianity, and other characters from the bible, 'Cain and Able, were great characters in these stories' mix it all together with deities who were before all of them 'Dream, Desire, Despair, Destiny, Death etc' and create a story that connects them all and runs smoothly till the perfect ending is so amazing to me. Only Gaiman has done this so well and I recommend everyone checking this series out, for this will be a remembered classic in literature for years to come.

(For mature readers only) I just finished Season of Mists--the fourth Sandman I've read, and so far the best. Now I must have the rest of them. I need money. Where can I get some money? To try and explain what Sandman is about could not do it justice. You will never understand the power of these comic books until you read them for yourself. Start with Preludes and Nocturnes and work your way through. And please send me A Game Of You and the rest once you've finished.
