Reviews Season of Mists (The Sandman, #4)

  • Bill Kerwin
    Neil Gaiman is at his best when his imagination is peopled with gods and demons—magnificent, outsize personalities, ranging from the eerily transcendent to the surprisingly human—and the tale he chooses to tell in “Season of Mists” gives him ample room to create a godly and superior fantasy.The plot is simple. Lucifer abdicates Hell, sending the damned back to earth, and turns the keys over to Dream. Dream doesn’t really want the proper...

    I find myself at a loss for words whenever I come to review a volume of this series, simply because it is just that good. What is there to talk of that will do it justice? Could I speak of the intelligent weaving of mythological figures with distinctively human personalities? No. Not enough. Could I speak of the literary allusions and most apt references to long dead poets and writers? No. Not enough. One thing I can say with absolute certainty i...

    The story goes to Hell, in more than one sense. Creative Team:Writer: Neil GaimanIllustrators: Kelly Jones, Malcolm Jones III, Mike Dringenberg, Matt Wagner, Dick Giordano, George Pratt & P. Craig RussellCovers: Dave McKeanLetterer: Todd Klein FAMILY REUNIONS, HELLISH KEYS, BOARDING SCHOOLS & DIVINE PARTIES Yet another impressive introduction to the TPB by Harlan Ellison, denoting again that The Sandman is something else in the middle of the genr...

    This is the point in the series where shit gets real. For one thing, this is the first glimpse you have of how truly mythically all-encompasing this series is. You have Odin, the Lucifer, some Faeries, Demons, a Japanese storm god, Bast and Anubis, two angelic presences, and other assorted powers all hanging out, not just in the same story. But on the same page. And it makes sense. You're left thinking, oh, yeah. Sure. Why wouldn't Thor be hittin...

    Now the good stuff really gets started.Introducing most of the Eternals, we discover intrigue with Destiny, some deep sadness in Delirium, friendship in Death, capriciousness in Desire, and maybe a bit of reasonableness in Despair. Dream is there, of course, and he's rightly annoyed with his siblings.He is, after all, the one who had perpetrated a great crime. Who are they to taunt him?Ah, Nada. Such a tragic figure.And she's only a plot hook!Oh ...

    What happens when Lucifer decides to leave hell? Season of Mists, the fourth volume of The Sandman answers that question as Dream heads to Hell once again, this time to release a former lover who has been imprisoned and tortured for thousands of years. Upon arrival, he finds Hell deserted, and Lucifer ushering out the stragglers he has banished from the lands, he then hands dream the key to the kingdom. This is the best of the first four volumes ...

    This is my favorite entry in the Sandman series so far!Here we learn a lot-for instance, all the supposed stand alone stories in Sandman 3: The Dream Country, were NOT all stand alones. Some of them do have connections that are referenced here. The introduction by the irascible Harlan Ellison was fantastic. I know he's a curmudgeon, but I adore the man. His description of what happened when one of Gaiman's comic book stories won the World Fantasy...
  • Algernon
    The speech of Lucifer Morningstar on giving up his responsibilities in Hell would be good enough to justify the five stars review, but there is a lot more to like in this new book of the Sandman comic. Like the old fashioned chapter headings, teasers of events to come and plot twists to discover:issue 21 : In which a Family reunion occasions certain recriminations; assorted events are set in motion; and a relationship thought long done with prov...

This is the book by him that to me is the m...
