Well, this is of course, brilliant But why It occurs to me that the world Gaiman set up for himself was in fact the perfect tool for him He could incorporate any mythology, religion, genre, location or time and still make it all self consistent, hence allowing his imagination to go wherever it wanted or needed to This particular volume is a great showcase for this variety and it is enhanced by

but Desire is starting to give me the creepsThen came the tavern at the end of the worlds arc This is another multiple PoV arc, most of the stories only connect marginally with the endless, but I need an annotated sandman to get all the references in the stories, because I spotted enough of them to know there are manyI didn t get.This arc p I didn t really care for the first arc in this book It was

manyI didn t get.This arc plot goes several travelers are caught in a storm, find refuge in a tavern, and tell stories, to pass the time and earn their keep.Between this 2 arcs there s this beautiful Arabian Nights style story called Ramadan I believe it s issue 50 It is one of my favourite issues so far, along with the closing the gates of Hell issue In the end there s the script and the behind the scenes, how this came to be, story.I switched to the Absolute version of Sandman because it does wonders for the art And in this book there are some of the most beautiful pages I have seen.In Ramadan there is this beautiful Arabian Nights style, full of merengue toped spires, and Arabian inspired lettering, and jewels and markets full of people and wonders.In the tavern arc, each story is drawn in a very different style, some of them I loved, they could almost tell the story with no words, some werenormal comics style, some were creepy, but they fitted the stories being toldAnd for all the Fables fans out there I ll just say this Jack of Fables is a total Easter Egg I m not the recognised the artist type of girl, but I totally guessed who draw the art on the first arc There is a character there that could be Jack s brother (FREE) ì The Absolute Sandman, Volume Three ⛈ One of the most popular and critically acclaimed comic book titles of all time, New York Times best selling

than some of theadventure centric fun of earlier stories Brief Lives is bookended by one shot views of how dreams effect history, mythology and the way our stories are told and remembered There are stories within stories, and the context only gets thicker after that Interestingly, the titular characters plays only a tangential role in many of the stories, which gives this volume a less focussed air than the two preceeding I had the feeling that Gaiman was enjoying the world he had created, but hadideas in him than could be wrapped around the one character The result is a series of diversions from the overarching plot that all share the same thrust Interestingly, I was expecting a big payoff at the end of Brief Lives because it s the central narrative, but you really don t get it until the end of all the disjointed stories.Also, I m not the first to be profoundly impressed by P Craig Russel s treatment of Gaiman s Ramadan story for issue 50 I m going to have to track downof his work.Enthralling, through and through
