New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision. During Morpheus's incarceration, three dreams escaped the Dreaming and are now loose in the waking world. At the same time, a young woman named Rose Walker is searching for her little brother. As their stories converge, a vortex is discovered that could destroy all dreamers, and the world itself. Features an introduction by Clive Barker. This volume includes issues 9-16 of the original series and features completely new coloring, approved by the author.… (mais)

This volume is different from the first, the story is not so centered in the Sandman and more on side characters, some were mentioned in the previous book. It starts with a beautiful tale and there are lots of good stuff until the end. Totally worth my time. ( )

Volume 1 didn't do this series justice. Now, with Volume 2, I get it. I understand what the hype is about. Still not massively fond of the art, but it's beginning to fit a bit better.

Would have been nice if Dringenberg (the artist) would have given a tip of the hat to the artist Patrick Nagel, seeing as how Desire is stolen from his style, and he also aped it for Chantal's dream sequence. I hate when one artist borrows from another without credit.

I enjoyed the parts with the eternals, but the child molester plot and rape scenes really turned me off. ( )

Herein we get a bit more worldbuilding, seeing how Dream is taking back his world after decades of capture. For the most part, we deal with the fallout around a family of one of the women from Sandman 1 (the one who found herself pregnant), but there's also a very well told story of a man granted immortality--on the condition that he checks up with Dream once every hundred years at the same old pub. Also a 'Cereal' convention (that took me longer than it should have). Of course.

It's well written, beautifully (in the creepy sort of way at times) illustrated, and well worth the read. Onwards!

Random pages worth sharing/spoilers:



Something you can't do as easily in a traditional novel. A really unsettling way to literally turn the panels in different directions.



You know, you've got a point. You only meet Death once, but you Dream a third of your life.



Heh. Shaxberd. Fun to see how things all fit together in an alternate world such as this.



More Constantines! Also I do like this story. An ordinary man 'cursed' to live forever. Not a new story, but always interesting to see how it goes.



Heh. Teenager. :D



Desire is... a weird one. I think with Desire and Despair we've only seen four of the seven so far? Curious who the others are. We shall see when we shall see. ( )

For me, The Doll's House is where The Sandman first starts feeling like the series it'll become known for being. A lot of seeds are sown for later arcs - Rose, Barbie, Desire's beef with Dream, etc - and a lot of the series' rules are first codified in these issues. But it also maintains some of the problems found in the series' first arc as well and also manages to rank among the arcs that have aged the least well.

The Doll's House has a much stronger story than Preludes & Nocturnes. It's a story about Rose Walker and her family, continuing to tie up story threads left dangling from the previous arc. While everything takes a bit of time to get moving - the arc starts with one of those one-shots The Sandman is famous for having, which ends up being a muse on the very act of storytelling, a central theme of the series - once the story gets going, it never really stops. We're taken from England to Florida to Georgia (and a serial killer's convention) all the way back to the Dreaming as Rose Walker tries to unravel the threads of her family history.

I still find the narrative to be a pretty good one, but there are elements of it that haven't aged well. For a start, Desire is frequently referred to by the "it" pronoun. I understand that it was the early 90s when this was published and the singular "they/them/their" pronoun wasn't as widely used as it is today, but hearing an explicitly androgynous character like Desire referred to as an "it" hits in an unfortunate way. I don't think there was any mal intent on Gaiman's part, but it's something that hasn't aged well. The same is true for some of the scenes depicted in the serial killer's convention plot. To be fair, Gaiman never comes close to sympathizing with these killers, but some of those scenes are so disturbing that it's almost not fun to read them. Perhaps that's the point, but I think it'll be hard for some modern readers to fully get behind that.

Still, there's a lot to love in The Doll's House, though, including its artwork. This time, the bulk of the issues are illustrated by Mike Dringenberg, giving more of the artwork a kind of uniformity that I felt was missing in the first arc. A few of the issues are illustrated by other artists - Chris Bachalo tackles issue #12 while Michael Zulli illustrates issue #13 - but both of these issues act more as side plots of the main story and so their differing art style feels intentional and appropriate. Dringenberg's art style is still not my favorite, but it certainly does the job. There are some beautiful images in this book - often a mixture of reality and surreality - but they are deftly balanced with the kind of artwork needed to ensure the story is visually understandable.

At the end of the day, The Doll's House inches The Sandman closer to what the series is known for. It features a main storyline that, while featuring some elements that haven't aged well, remains devilishly interesting and captivating to read. It's impressive seeing just how much of the series' overarching storyline is seeded in these early arcs and it's clear, even from this early on, how well Gaiman understands the world and the characters he's created. I think that if readers can make it to this arc, they'll be hooked into the world of The Sandman. ( )
