Neil Gaiman, Yoshitaka Amano:
Sandman, The: The Dream Hunters - Paperback

2007, ISBN: 156389629X

[SR: 253115], Paperback, [EAN: 9781563896293], Vertigo, Vertigo, Book, [PU: Vertigo], 2000-06-01, Vertigo, Sandman fans should feel lucky that master fantasy writer Neil Gaiman discovered the mythical world of Japanese fables while researching his translation of Hayao Miyazaki's film Princess Mononoke. At the same time, while preparing for the Sandman 10th anniversary, he met Yoshitaka Amano, his artist for the 11th Sandman book. Amano is the famed designer of the Final Fantasy game series. The product of Gaiman's immersion in Japanese art, culture, and history, Sandman: Dream Hunters is a classic Japanese tale (adapted from "The Fox, the Monk, and the Mikado of All Night's Dreaming") that he has subtly morphed into his Sandman universe. Like most fables, the story begins with a wager between two jealous animals, a fox and a badger: which of them can drive a young monk from his solitary temple? The winner will make the temple into a new fox or badger home. But as the fox adopts the form of a woman to woo the monk from his hermitage, she falls in love with him. Meanwhile, in far away Kyoto, the wealthy Master of Yin-Yang, the onmyoji, is plagued by his fears and seeks tranquility in his command of sorcery. He learns of the monk and his inner peace; he dispatches demons to plague the monk in his dreams and eventually kill him to bring his peace to the onmyoji. The fox overhears the demons on their way to the monk and begins her struggle to save the man whom at first she so envied. Dream Hunters is a beautiful package. From the ink-brush painted endpapers to the luminous page layouts--including Amano's gate-fold painting of Morpheus in a sea of reds, oranges, and violets--this book has been crafted for a sensuous reading experience. Gaiman has developed as a prose stylist in the last several years with novels and stories such as Neverwhere and Stardust, and his narrative rings with a sense of timelessness and magic that gently sustains this adult fairy tale. The only disappointment here is that the book is so brief. One could imagine this creative team being even better suited to a longer story of more epic proportions. On the final page of Dream Hunters, in fact, Amano suggest that he will collaborate further with Mr. Gaiman in the future. Readers of Dream Hunters will hope that Amano's dream comes true. --Patrick O'Kelley, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 7187330011, Amazon Publishing, 16256501011, Audible Audiobooks, 13901671, Audiobooks, 14244971, Bargain Books, 13621591, Boxed Sets, 194725011, Canada Day Deals, 377366011, Christian Living Store, 263003011, For Dummies Store, 2354164011, Formats, 714830011, Kids & Family Store, 370821011, Qualifying Textbooks - Fall 2007, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 13933651, Fantasy, 13933601, Graphic Novels, 13932641, Comics & Graphic Novels, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 13933621, Horror, 13933601, Graphic Novels, 13932641, Comics & Graphic Novels, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 13933641, Science Fiction, 13933601, Graphic Novels, 13932641, Comics & Graphic Novels, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 13934321, DC, 13932741, Publishers, 13932641, Comics & Graphic Novels, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

Sandman, The: The Dream Hunters - Paperback

2000, ISBN: 156389629X

[SR: 189566], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9781563896293], Vertigo, Vertigo, Book, [PU: Vertigo], 2000-06-01, Vertigo, Paperback, When, in 1996, Neil Gaiman laid his acclaimed Sandman series to rest after seven extraordinarily successful years, the fans lamented. And with good reason: its influence on the comic book industry was immeasurable; the harbinger of a renewed literary acceptance for the medium. Gaiman had expertly fashioned a vivid Gothic fantasy world that mixed the majesty of folklore with the horrors of modern life. The rich tapestry of stories that unfolded focused on a lonely Byronic figure called Morpheus, ruler of the amorphous world of our dreams. With The Dream Hunters, fans can rejoice as Gaiman returns to his signature work with a haunting fable of love, devotion and betrayal set in Ancient Japan. A lone monk spends his days tending to his temple garden, when he meets a Fox, a beautiful woman in human form, who becomes trapped within the monk's dreams. To save her, the monk must travel to the Realm of the Sandman and face a terrible choice between love and death. Meanwhile, a sinister magician makes nefarious plans against the pair to achieve his heart's desire. On this occasion, Gaiman's evocative prose is paired with the ethereally beautiful paintings of Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano. And what a pairing it is; this is a prime example of creative symbiosis if ever there was one. True, the story is slight, but Gaiman weaves his own magic of letting simplicity harbour a wondrous complexity that lurks in the background, wonderfully rendered by Amano. Fans will be delighted by this comeback, while others can be captivated by Gaiman's assurance that popular culture cannot displace old-fashioned tales of magic and wonder. --Danny Graydon, 58117011, Science Fiction, 66012011, Graphic Novels, 65981011, Comics, Mangas & Graphic Novels, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 66016011, Fantasy, 66012011, Graphic Novels, 65981011, Comics, Mangas & Graphic Novels, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 66034011, Belletristik, 67209011, Aufsätze, 66035011, Briefe & Korrespondenz, 67196011, Bücher & Lesen, 67212011, Comics, 66159011, Dramatik, 67917011, Erotik, 66036011, Frauenromane, 67931011, Geschichte & Kritik, 66093011, Klassiker, 68079011, Kurzgeschichten, 67215011, Literarisch, 67966011, Lyrik, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 68085011, Weltliteratur, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 59283011, Jugendbücher, 59284011, Biographien & Memoiren, 59291011, Geschichte & Historische Romane, 59298011, Horror, 59364011, Körper & Geist, 59350011, Literatur & Belletristik, 59606011, Mangas, 59299011, Mystery, 59300011, Nachschlagewerke, 59344011, Religion & Spiritualität, 59360011, Schule & Sport, 59305011, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 59373011, Soziale Themen, 59599011, Wissenschaft & Technik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher
