A conventional piece of graphic literature,
This review is from: The Sandman: Brief Lives, Vol. 7 (Paperback)
This volume of The Sandman did not turn out as good as I initially expected.If it had,I would not be writing this review,proclaiming its excellence.In this volume Delirium(previously delight)decides to try to find her once close brother Destruction,who abandoned his realm and his responsibilities as one of the endless 300 years ago,to live in 'the waking world'.She convinces her older brother Death(the Sandman)to help her.
All of the disfunctional famiy-the Endless are featured in this excellent story of life and change;Destiny,Death,Dream,Destruction,Desire,Despair and Delirium.Their names reflect their personalities and nature,especially for Delirium who is of course,delirius(my favourite charachter!)I found her dramatic physical changes over short periods of time and her ignorance in the waking world very funny.The two gothic-looking characters;the attractive,pragmatic Death and her morose,older brother Dream(the sandman) are also very interesting charachters.
Not only is this book full of good charachters,it is also a good piece of eye-candy.I would recommend this book to Gaiman fans and anyone else who likes good comic books!...'Farewell'.
