A perfect Characterisation,
This review is from: SANDMAN TP VOL 10 THE WAKE (Sandman Collected Library) (Paperback)
One of the true judges of a character or myth is the effect of it's demise.
In the Wake, Gainman, along with some exquisite artists, tie up a character 9 years in the making with enough heartfelt longing to impress someone who hasn't even read the other Sandman books.
Though it does not stand well alone (hence the 4 stars) the wake - especially the three dealing exclusively with the death of Morpheus - is probably the most rounded of all the Sandman stories and ties up a lot of the lose ends. One for all.
Oh, and the intorduction by - forgottenhisnamedonothavethebooktohand -is the only one worth reading in all the series. Well done.
