Inhaltsangabe zu „The Sandman - The Kindly Ones“ 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. In THE KINDLY ONES, distraught by the kidnapping and presumed death of her son, and believing Morpheus to be responsible, Lyta Hall calls the ancient wrath of the Furies down upon him. A former superheroine blames Morpheus for the death of her child and summons an ancient curse of vengeance against the Lord of Dream. The "kindly ones" enter his realm and force a sacrifice that will change the Dreaming forever. Collecting issues #57-69 of THE SANDMAN and "The Castle" story from VERTIGO JAM, THE KINDLY ONES features art by Marc Hempel, Richard Case, D'Israeli, Teddy Kristiansen, Glyn Dillon, Charles Vess, Dean Ormston and Kevin Nowlan.

    The Sandman - The Kindly Ones


    19. October 2013 um 22:03

    This time the Sandman is in real trouble. The little son of a young woman has been kidnapped and she is persuaded of the blame of the Lord of Dreams. In search of her child, she meets The Three Furies, whose duty is practicing bloody revenge without a soupçon of pity. And so their next object will be the Sandman... But this is not the only story in this volume, which is at least twice as thick as the previous ones. Among other things, there is Lady Delirium looking for her dog; also there is Nuala and her unrequited love for The Sandman; we follow Loki's cruel fate and additional a young woman who is attending an acquaintance while a deadly disease – and to be honest: I don’t have any idea what kind of proportion is this tale to the main story. Like before at the last book I come to the same conclusion: I have to read the previous books probably once again ;-) The stories are devilishly good as usual. However, this time I quarrel with the drawings. They are rougher painted than the previous images, almost in a sort of cubist way which I don’t find that appealing as a basis for a graphic novel. It would be wonderful if in the next volume the illustrators return to the old drawing style.
