Neil Gaiman comic
THE SANDMAN, written by New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, THE SANDMAN is also widely considered one of the most original and artistically ambitious series of the modern age. By the time it concluded in 1996, it had made significant contributions to the artistic maturity of comic books and become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right.
Providing tantalizing glimpses into the fantastical worlds he would create and nurture, NEIL GAIMAN'S MIDNIGHT DAYS collects some of the Eisner Award-winning author's earliest work.
