Neil Gaiman & Yoshitaka Amano: The Sandman: The Dream Hunters

538865The Sandman: The Dream Hunters
by Neil Gaiman
illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano
(graphic novel?, fantasy)

This is sort-of a graphic novel, in that is set in the realm of the Sandman graphic novels. (It might not seem to be, but between the title and the appearance of the character Morpheus (aka the King of All Night’s Dreamings), it is.) It is also not a graphic novel, however, because it is told in prose with accompanying illustrations.

Whatever it is classified, it is lovely.

The story is as beautiful as the artwork, though don’t expect a traditional happy ending. This is told as a fable, and as such it teaches lessons that must be learned through trials, love, sacrifice, and loss. Some characters experience some of these, and others experience them all. It is not exactly sad either, though. It is bittersweet, and beautiful.
