The Sandman, Vol. 10
The WakeGraphic Novel - 1997
The Sandman is the most acclaimed and award-winning comics series of the 1990s for good reason: a smart and deeply brooding epic, elegantly penned by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by a rotating cast of comics' most sought-after artists, it is a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven. The saga of The Sandman encompasses a series of tales unique in graphic literature and is a story you will never forget. Ancient gods, old friends and enemies alike gather to remember and pay tribute to the fallen King of Dreams in The Wake, bringing to a close the long story of Morpheus of The Endless. In the aftermath of one of the strangest wakes ever held, echoes of Morpheus reverberate, touching a man who refuses to die, a Chinese sage lost in a desert of dreams, and an aging William Shakespeare, who must fulfill one last obligation to The Sandman in his own twilight years.
