Inhaltsangabe zu „The Sandman - A Game of You“ von Neil Gaiman

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision. THE SANDMAN: A GAME OF YOU tells a fascinating tale of lost childhood dreams and the power that they can wield over reality. Since she was a child, Barbie has dreamed of a world in which she was a princess. But after separating from her husband, she has ceased to dream and her fantasy kingdom has been savagely overrun by an evil entity known as the Cuckoo. Now as elements of her fantasy world cross over and begin to drastically affect reality, Barbie and her friends venture into the realm of dreams to save its peaceful inhabitants. But against the power of dark and dying dreams, even the combined might of a witch, two lesbian lovers, a transsexual, and a decapitated talking head might not be enough to save two different planes of existence This fifth volume of the SANDMAN series collects newly recolored issues #32-37 of the Vertigo classic.

    The Sandman - A Game of You


    21. February 2012 um 17:27

    Sandman V is the episode which I’ve read through fastest up to now. Compared to the previous books it’s an entire continuous story, which acts in the here and now (more or less), so that the perusing narrative flow is steadily increasing the tension.Barbie is a quite typical young woman, who (somewhere living in N.Y.) is enjoying her life after the seperation of Ken. But somewhere there is existing another world, which is threatened by extinction and where she is the monarch. Barbie doesn’t sense anything about this menacing danger. And so, some of the inhabitants head off at the risk of losing their lifes, to ask her to help them.The story is gripping without exception and plays with the different levels of two worlds, where subliminally is created the impression, that one is the real earth and the other a complete imaginary one. But a reality, which is populated by Barbie and Ken, dream creatures who are paying a visit and hoary magic beings? What’s real? What’s fantasy?Gorgeous narrative (even if there is a little bit less thoughtfulness than in some of the previous books), congenial drawings – a wonderful read!
