    Superbly written but too long for what the story is about Creative Team Writer Neil GaimanIllustrators Marc Hempel, Richard Case, D Israeli, Glyn Dillon, Teddy Kristiansen, Charles Vess, Dean Ormston Kevin NowlanCovers Dave McKeanLetterer Todd Klein THE END IS NIGH We do what we do because of who we are If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves. Before of anything, I want to comment that it was very nice to find that The Kindly Ones TPB price remained in 19.99, the same as other previous TPBs I mention this, since this ninth volume is easily twice the long, so it could be normal to be priced in a higher price Maybe it was a request by Neil Gaiman, the author, or not In any case, it was good to buy this TPB at the same price that the other previous ones How childish Men <...

    I remember reading somewhere that Bleak House is one of Neil Gaiman s favorite novels, and The Kindly Ones, the penultimate volume of The Sandman, reminded me a great deal of Bleak House Like the typical Dickens novel, The Sandman series contains a multitude of characters and plot threads, and The Kindly Ones is the volume which, gathering these characters and threads together, brings them to climax though not to conclusion, a matter reserved for the next volume, The Wake It is precisely this movement toward climax that reminded me of reading Bleak House somewhere near the end of Dicken s narrative, with about one hundred pages remaining, you can sense the characters arranging their final tableaux, the plot threads combining into a fin...

    The most ambitious of all Sandman albums, the highpoint of the series, the convergence of all the random plot threads and part time characters into a spectacular denouement The tragic nature of the story doesn t come as a surprise the seeds were planted right from the start, with Morpheus imprisoned in a country manor in England in Preludes and Nocturnes and reflecting on his past mistakes and ways to redeem them Every subsequent volume added to the morbid and apparently inevitable conflict that pits the Lord of Dreaming against persons he has mishandled, intentionally or not A second source for Morpheus woes comes from his fascination with mortals and their brief lives, making him lose his immmortal detachment from the affairs of ants.The resolution is not a surprise, given the clear portents of ...

    I guess it s like Sammy Hagar sang nay, emoted in a criminally underrated deep cut off the For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge album dream another dream this dream is over.Sandman has never shied away from going into dark places reading it is often akin to that time when you were a kid and were forced to go down into your grandmother s unfinished basement to fetch a jar of homemade jam Logically, you knew nothing bad would happen, but it was still terrifying to open the dingy door at the top of the stairs, flip the light switch and hear that single, low watt yellow light bulb buzz to life, and work your way slowly down the creaky wooden steps, taking care to avoid the fifth stair, where the head of a nail stuck out just a little bit You knew that your stockinged feet would struggle to find traction on t...

    I ve rated both this and The Sandman Vol 7 Brief Lives 5 stars, but I think I liked Brief Lives better, for the sole reason that it contained scenes with Delerium Here, Delerium is searching for someone again, this time her talking dog Barnabas, and the scene where they re reunited was charming as all get out.Practically every other character we ve met along the way shows up in the Kindly Ones, and it was just proof that Gaiman is the master of making everything he writes have a purpose It was very, very impressive how it all tied together I know that some people say you can read most of these as stand alones, but the pay off for following them in order is not to be missed.I haven t mentioned Morpheous much in my reviews, despite the series being named after him I ll take a moment now to say tha...

    This is the penultimate arc in Neil Gaiman s original Sandman run The seeds for Dream s ultimate fate has been foreshadowed in previous storylines, with its seeds reaching fruition here The actual machinations for his demise are contained in this story as we see characters with a vendetta against Morpheus working towards his downfall This is the longest arc in the title, with the appropriately thickest trade paperback, taking over a year to complete it I thought that this was a bargain when I bought it, having a larger page count than say, World s End, the eighth Sandman trade paperback.I need not say about Gaiman s writing on Sandman His work, to craft stories about stories for a mature readership was an impetus to the launch of Vertigo as a line to house Sandman

    6 stars Now, you are probably looking at the title of the ninth volume of Neil Gaiman s fantastic Sandman series, which is called The Kindly Ones and you are probably thinking to yourself about how this volume will be all sunshine and roses Definitely not Do not let the innocent title of this volume fool you The ninth volume The Kindly Ones is probably the darkest volume out of all the Sandman series since A Game of You and yet this is probably the best volume out of the entire Sandman series ever created Lyta Hall also known as Hippolyta Hall was always on edge when it came to taking care of her baby son Daniel, who was born after her husband Hector had died One night however, when Lyta Hall decided to leave her baby son Daniel in the care of a babysitter while she went for a job applica...

    Just about all the disparate plot lines and characters come together in this volume, even several that originally appeared to be random In only this aspect speaking of aspect, the facet of a gemstone is my favorite image in this book , I was reminded of how while reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I was so amazed at how everything came together that immediately afterward I reread all the HP books just to see how Rowling did it.As this is volume 9, it seems appropriate that there are three sets of three the Erinyes, the Gorgons and the Fates Though perhaps there are even a reference to the Hesperides a mention of the Morrigan the three women in a nursing home, one of whom tells a great fairytale folktale or perhaps there is merely one one entity revealing its various aspects

    Best Sandman volume so far Sadly illustrations are worst in series and this is series that has pretty bad illustrations overall.

    I want to learn how to draw a pentagram, into which I will catch Neil Gaiman to make ask him to tell me bedtime stories every night.
