The Sandman: Endless Nights

By Neil Gaiman

Rating: 4 stars

This is a collection of seven graphic stories, one about each of the Endless (Dream’s family from the Sandman series). I really enjoyed this book. Each story “fit” very much into the character that was its focus (“15 Portraits of Dispair” was particularly odd). Chronologically, it went all over the place, from one story set billions of years in the past, to ones set after Sandman and it was nice to get a glimpse of Delight in one of them (pre-Delirium).

The stories are all illustrated by different artists, and although the styles are very different, they’re all excellent, particularly Frank Quitely’s art for Destiny’s story. This is a great book but perhaps not the best place for a Sandman virgin to come to the world.
