Volume II of this series is as gorgeous as Volume I. There are two main stories, only one of which I'd read before. The first, about Lucifer abdicating as ruler of Hell, did not appeal to me as much as the second, about The Cuckoo, with its cast of characters from under-represented groups and very mysterious goings on. Apparently I'm unusual in liking it more than the other. I still feel Sandman is at its best when it relies on Gaiman's own invented mythology of the Endless more than on any connections to the wider DC universe or obvious borrowings from elsewhere.

I keep forgetting the strong horror sensibility that Sandman has - it's not prominent in Gaiman's prose fiction. I like it.

There's heaps of bonus material in the back, most of which has not been collected before, including a very short piece featuring Desire. Presumably the original comic is quite valuable now. It's all worth reading, including the script for the issue in which Sandman returns to Hell. Hilariously, we find out what Gaiman was watching on a B&W TV whilst writing it and that if you're not fully paying attention one might mistake Boorman's self-aware, ironic and hilarious film Excalibur for rubbish...

Bring me Volume III ! ( )

Mr. Gaiman, you wrote a damn fine comic here. Damn fine.

"A Game of You" is another precursor to the first graphic novel I fell in love with, 'Kingdom of the Wicked', and had some great characters. And "Season of Mists" you just have to read to believe. I said in my review for the 'Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1' that Gaiman creates his own mythology for 'Sandman', but that he does it on the grandest scale and in so few issues....

I stayed up late multiple nights to get through "just one more" and it was worth the foggy work mornings. The book ends unexpectedly because of the huge bonus sections of author bios and scripts, but the series still feels like it's on an upward trajectory.

Some very cool stories set within beautifully rendered artwork. While I'm otherwise not a huge Neil Gaiman fan, (I'm not sure why his novels don't resonate with me), this Sandman material is simply amazing. ( )

Another great presentation of Gaiman's epic. This contains the story of Lucifer's departure from Hell (one of the high points of Sandman) with the story of Barbie's dream world (which is probably my least favorite part of the story, despite the appearance of Thessaly, one of my favorite characters).

Three years after getting Absolute Sandman 2 from Amber as a Christmas present, I finally sat down and flew through it. It's not that its a difficult graphic novel to read, quite the contrary actually. It's that its so good and there are only 5 of them. You got to pace them out. Gaiman doesn't produce a lot of long reads so if you like him like I do, you have to make him last. This second volume contains a number of great story lines including Dream's descent into hell and Lucifer basically giving up hell to go on vacation. We also get treated to some historical fiction with the French Revolution, Augustus Caesar, Marco Polo, and turn of the century San Francisco. Pure fantasy is dished up with the "A Game of You" series and "The Hunt". All are quite original, finely written and illustrated, and all a bit dark and mysterious. The volume closes with some great "extras" at the end like the facsimile of Gaiman's script to the illustrators with his captions for "A Game of You". ( )

You don't have to stay anywhere forever.
We do what we must . . . Sometimes we can choose the path we follow. Sometimes our choices are made for us. And sometimes we have no choice at all.
And if there's a moral there, I don't know what it is, save maybe that we should take our goodbyes whenever we can. And that's all.
