Pormenores da obra

The Sandman: A Game of You por Neil Gaiman (1993)

  1. 10
    Courtney Crumrin and the Coven of Mystics por Ted Naifeh (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: Sandman is much more intense and adult, but for those who have already read it they might read Courtney Crumrin as something simple and enjoyable.
  2. 00
    Doom Patrol, Vol.1: Crawling From the Wreckage por Grant Morrison (FFortuna)
  3. 00
    Bones of the Moon por Jonathan Carroll (mmonk)
    mmonk: The two works are so closely tied together that it's hard to decide if the Sandman arc is an homage or some kind of a quasi-sequel to Carroll's novel. Reading one work enriches the understanding of the other.

This one didn't grab me as much as the last volume, Season of Mists. It was okay, but I found it didn't pick up steam until the second-last chapter, which I enjoyed immensely. And the epilogue, though subdued, was fitting.

My biggest issue is with the constantly rotating stable of artists. I find the stories become much more nuanced when a single, dedicated artist has time to become emotionally invested in the stories and characters as they evolve. That's not the case here. Instead, one artist starts the story, then others are chained to those likenesses and settings. Not as much fun, and it was a particular annoyance in this volume.

Still, Gaiman always has some good stuff to say, and he did so here as well. ( )

This time around, I think I'll just start with the summary from Goodreads:

Take an apartment house, mix in a drag queen, a lesbian couple, some talking animals, a talking severed head, a confused heroine, and the deadly Cuckoo. Stir vigorously with a hurricane and Morpheus himself and you get this fifth installment of the Sandman series.

Where else would you see anything nearly that nuts? In Sandman, that's where!

If you really think about it, the idea of cuckoos is already kind of terrifying. When you taken a Cuckoo in mystical humanish form...



Things get alltogether weirder.

Add to that travelling into Barbie's realm (last seen a few books ago) to save the Princess and you have quite a story. We don't actually get that much of Dream himself, but plenty of dreams. And it works out all the better.

Spoilers/pictures:



She's wonderfully blunt. Oh woman powered magic. It ends up an odd combination of accepting and damning of different lifestyles all at the same time. About how life works out.



Oh the magic of dreams. And weird fonts. At least these are much easier to read than the angels' in the previous book.



Heh. It's funny because it's another book. But they of course have spiders here (it's a dream!). ( )

Flying through this series! This one was really interesting as it had a number of female characters leading the story, exploring the idea of childhood imagination. ( )

Barbie cannot dream, but one night she dreams and cannot wake up. Her neighbors task themselves to find her in the dream world, but it is a highly dangerous land between the living and the imaginary. It's a complicated volume, and I won't do it justice by talking about it. But it was worth the read, even if a few parts made me a bit squicky inside. ( )
  DrFuriosa | Dec 4, 2020 |
The last remaining loyal inhabitants of the Land try to call back their princess, who is dreaming on Earth.

I enjoyed the story much more in this one. It had a strong Narnia feel to it, particularly reminiscent of "Prince Caspian" and "The Last Battle". I did get a bit teary-eyed at the end with the last sighting of Wanda ( )

A Game of You is the least popular of all The Sandman installments, yet Gaiman considers it his favorite. When it was first published, a story in which Morpheus barely appears, in which half the action takes place in a Disney-on-acid world of talking animals and a villainous Cuckoo, a quest that features the most MacGuffiny MacGuffin ever, and stars one heroine in search of an identity, two lesbians, one trans-woman and a Bronze-age witch...well, let’s just say that the heroes of Comic Book Men, had they been filming in 1992, wouldn’t quite know what to make of it.

I have great admiration for the genius of this series, for the themes, for the storytelling, and the way they are combined; however, of all THE SANDMAN trade collections, it is the one I find least enjoyable as a reading experience.

In reviewing this collection, as masterful as it is, I feel I have to dock it half a star because so many readers do not enjoy reading it. But how many books that I don’t enjoy reading am I willing to give four-and-a-half stars? Not many, if at any at all. Leave it to Gaiman to make me praise in a long review a story that I wasn’t even looking forward to re-reading!
