    Neil Gaiman is at his best when his imagination is peopled with gods and demons magnificent, outsize personalities, ranging from the eerily transcendent to the surprisingly human and the tale he chooses to tell in Season of Mists gives him ample room to create a godly and superior fantasy.The plot is simple Lucifer abdicates the throne of Hell, sending the damned back to earth, and turns the keys over to Dream Dream doesn t really want the property too vast, too hard to keep up but a lot if other beings do, including demons, angels, fairies, and yes, of course gods Odin, Thor, Loki, Anubis, Bes, Bast, the Shinto storm god Susano o no Mikoto, and the personifications of Order a cardboard box carried by a genie and Chaos a little girl dressed like a clown The delightful center of the tale is a grand banquet in the house of Dream, where these beings offer their bids and bribes for the prize of an empty Hell One of these offers interests Dream greatly a chance to rescue his lover Queen Nada from the consequences of his youthful anger.The central story is handled expertly, and the major digression about dead schoolboys and masters returning to their boarding school during vacation is very good too Gaiman s inspiration for Season of Mists was a remark of Jesuit theologian and anthropologist Teilhard de Chardin You have told me, O God, to believe in hell But you have forbidden me to thinkof any man as damned An easily resolved paradox, Gaiman thought to himself, provided you empty Hell The title is derived from Keat s Autumn season of mists and mellow fruitfulness Although the association of mellow fruitfulness with Hell may seem ironic, I believe its message is straightforward In Season of Mists, Dream does become mellow dying to unwelcome burdens and ancient rages, and gaining the fruits a small portion, at least of peace, reconciliation and love Finally, I would like to share with you my favorite part of Season of Mists Isn t it funny how often a minor character can fascinate you so much he almost blots out the rest For me, that character is Breschau of Livonia This imaginary Eastern European noble I know he s imaginary, having looked him up in vain proudly insists he remain in Hell because of the enormity of his deeds, which he relates in detail, proclaiming I am Breschau of Livonia Lucifer dismisses him with these words But no one today remembers Breschau No one I doubt one living mortal in a hundred thousand could even point to where Livonia used to be, on a map The world has forgotten you Not I, Lord Breschau, not I.

    I find myself at a loss for words whenever I come to review a volume of this series, simply because it is just that good What is there to talk of that will do it justice Could I speak of the intelligent weaving of mythological figures with distinctively human personalities No Not enough Could I speak of the literary allusions and most apt references to long dead poets and writers No Not enough One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that Gaiman is a genius This is by far the best thing he has written As great as some of his other writing is, The Sandman series is on a whole new level The writing here tackles marvellously big concepts in such a clear and careful way Dream, Death, Fate, Desire, Delirium, Despair and Destruction are powerful concepts that move human existence In part, they help to define it Gaiman represents them as a dysfunctional family, as forces, working to keep the balance within the universe Central to this series is Dream And everybody does it, even the Devil himself Lucifer has had enough of ruling in hell and wants to go and experience a few new things, only natural really after ruling in the fire pit for thousands of years Dream grants his request and as such is left with the keys to hell itself as Lucifer goes on seemingly indefinite vacation But Dream has his own responsibilities he can t be the new lord of hell So he gives the keys away, though who could be suitable for such a task All manner of beings come to claim them Anubis, Thor and Odin, The King of Fay, some demons from hell and even a few of god s chose angels come to observe the decision making All appear unequal to the task they all have their own personal motives and seek nothing but power They attempt to manipulate Dream they use death threats, bribery and even resort to the use of hostages in order to sway him.Dream, however, is revolute and understands that all power must be balanced within the universe The central story is very strong, though what I saw here was the beginning of all the loose threads coming together As grand as this story felt, it is clearly just a small chapter in a much larger story that is only just starting to reveal itself This series seems to be picking up some momentum Good things are sure to be ahead.

    The story goes to Hell, in than one sense Creative Team Writer Neil GaimanIllustrators Kelly Jones, Malcolm Jones III, Mike Dringenberg, Matt Wagner, Dick Giordano, George Pratt P Craig RussellCovers Dave McKeanLetterer Todd Klein FAMILY REUNIONS, HELLISH KEYS, BOARDING SCHOOLS DIVINE PARTIES Yet another impressive introduction to the TPB by Harlan Ellison, denoting again that The Sandman is something else in the middle of the genre of comic books Sometimes we can choose the path we follow Sometimes our choices are made for us And sometimes we have no choice at all. This volume has an epic beginning with a reuni n of the members of the Endless, well all of them except the prodigal Destruction who went awol lefting behind his responsibilities.This family reuni n of the Endless is easily the strongest section of the TPB and a real pleasure to read Come in Everybody s here and I do mean everybody. The rest of the TPB and the main storyline developed in this volume has a wonderful premise but that I humbly think that it wasn t properly exploited to its full potential.Morpheus, the embodiment of Dream committed an injustice long time ago In the volumen The Doll s House is told the tragic love story of Queen Nada, a mythical ruler of a vey ancient kingdom, and whose sad tale has been transmitted through generations when men reached maturity age Nada fell in love with Dream, but loving an Endless member is something complicated to say the least.Morpheus is going to Hell looking for Nada, since he found her there in his previous trip to the Hellish realm while he was looking for his mask to gather all his lost power during his imprisonment by magic.Hell is empty Lucifer quit Really.And now Morpheus is left with the Key to Hell Literally the key to open or to close, Hell.This unprecedent event will provoke an unique gathering of gods and divine envoys of many origins Norse, Japanese, Egyptian, Christian, etc even embodiments of primal forces.Everybody wants the Key to Hell and Morpheus is the one who will decide At that point, I was astonished, my mind was in neuronal fireworks HoweverThe developing of that hallucinative premise was, mmh how to say it Simple Lacking of a real challenge to the main character Morpheus There were so many possibilities, so many paths to take, a wide open field of odds, and at the end without spoiling anything is like mmh okay while the things change, remain the same Oh, and in the middle of that, you will find also a cool ghost story happening in a boarding school that I enjoyed a lot.So, while it contains incredible cool characters and a smart narrative, I found the ending, weak and unadventurous.BUTCertainly I will keep reading this epic run of The Sandman, you can bet on that

    This is the point in the series where shit gets real For one thing, this is the first glimpse you have of how truly mythically all encompasing this series is You have Odin, the Lucifer, some Faeries, Demons, a Japanese storm god, Bast and Anubis, two angelic presences, and other assorted powers all hanging out, not just in the same story But on the same page And it makes sense You re left thinking, oh, yeah Sure Why wouldn t Thor be hitting on Bast Even importantly, this is the point where, when I first read it, I thought Wait What Do you mean that all those cool little stand alone stories weren t stand alone stories Are you telling me that all these tiny stories which I loved, and would have left me completely blissed and satisfied all by themselves are actually all part of a bigger story My mind was blown And it still kinda is I d never seen this done before, and I ve never seen it done as well since.

    I think hell s something you carry around with you Not somewhere you go Season of Mists is the fourth volume in the Sandman graphic novel series Lucifer has given Dream the key to Hell, however Dream has a lot of other responsibilities and so decides the key should be given to someone else but who Oh man, this has definitely been my favourite volume so far in the series I have been enjoying Sandman a lot, but this was the point at which I really began to understand the hype behind it Season of Mists opens up with an Endless family gathering and all are present and accounted for Dream, Death, Desire, Delirium, Despair, Destiny and Destruction I am obsessed with this concept, that these components that play a role in each human s experience are represented by a dysfunctional family of seven siblings It s frigging genius how Gaiman does this, I am simply IN AWE.Following some taunting at the family get together, Dream feels bad about his treatment of a former lover and decides to go to Hell to retrieve her, but upon his arrival he finds that Lucifer is driving out all the demons and damned souls and he gives Dream the key to Hell s gates THEN the fun really starts as we get an amazing mishmash of different mythologies coming together baring some resemblance to American Gods to visit the Dreaming and plead their case to Dream for the key You got Odin arriving alongside Loki and Thor as well as Anubis, Bast and Bes the list goes on So many crazy and vibrant characters, I can t compliment this aspect enough Amongst all the drama happening over at the Dreaming, we also get a chapter that gives us some insight into the consequences of Hell s closure And it s EXCELLENT.I m honestly at a loss for words in terms of describing how much I loved this volume, although I feel like perhaps the reason I thoroughly enjoyed this one was because it is really the first to have a consistent story arc.Gaiman s imagination continues to fascinate me, he is just on another level 5 stars.

    Now the good stuff really gets started.Introducing most of the Endless, we discover intrigue with Destiny, some deep sadness in Delirium, friendship in Death, capriciousness in Desire, and maybe a bit of reasonableness in Despair Dream is there, of course, and he s rightly annoyed with his siblings.He is, after all, the one who had perpetrated a great crime Who are they to taunt him Ah, Nada Such a tragic figure.And she s only a plot hook Oh Hell I m not going to spoil Hell, but Dream goes back to right his great wrong.I was so surprised with the outcome Delighted Flabbergasted The implications were enormous and made me giddy with anticipation If the Eternals weren t enough to make things interesting, we also get the Aesir, Angels, Chaos, Chinese Gods, Devils, Fae, and Order knocking on Dream s door to threaten, bribe, plead So totally delicious.I read American Gods before Sandman, so I was grooving to this tune and this twist in a big way Hell, this Volume epitomizes everything I love about the Sandman Series When it thinks big, it thinks BIG Let s not piddle around the the little crap, shall we Let s move Heaven and Earth.Woo Woo If only all comics could get this grandiose Of course, I later learned that some could get pretty close, but this is my first taste of something really good.

    I ve been gradually warming to this series as it s picked up momentum, and Vol 4 proved to be a glorious realization of its vast potential What begins as the weirdest family reunion of all time takes a turn when Dream s family calls him out for the very douche bag move of condemning his ex girlfriend to eternal damnation in a fit of pique because she totally wanted to date other people Dream decides to journey to Hell to save her soul and hijinks ensue, not the least of which involves view spoiler Lucifer s abdication of the throne of Hell and subsequent turning over of same to Dream s possession hide spoiler

    What happens when Lucifer decides to leave hell Season of Mists, the fourth volume of The Sandman answers that question as Dream heads to Hell once again, this time to release a former lover who has been imprisoned and tortured for thousands of years Upon arrival, he finds Hell deserted, and Lucifer ushering out the stragglers he has banished from the lands, he then hands dream the key to the kingdom This is the best of the first four volumes in the series, with A Doll s House a close second, this should not be missed by fans, nor casual observers.Gaiman always adds epic storytelling and mythology in the series and this volume is no exception, Season of Mists takes on a lot sin, redemption, both personal and religious, and the battle between good and evil To discuss too much of the plot would ruin some of the rich suprises to come, but Gaiman s inventiveness is to the max here, with a gleefully funny and fascinating scene involving intrigue and lobbying by any number of demons, gods, and demigods, this provides an interesting look at the interactions between them Thor getting ridiculously drunk and hitting on women during the banquet, for example There is also a great ghost story set in a boys school that s not really like any haunted house tale you ve ever read But in the midst of his epic scope, Gaiman never neglects the smaller and intimate touches, and scenes involving nothing than an unlikely character commenting on a sunset or an unexpected birth revealing unexpected depths and complexities to Gaiman s creations The character of Lucifer is excellent and intriguing as well, and God s reward to the two angels who oversaw Dreams decision Well, that s up to the reader to decide It s become apparent just a little ways into the volume that Gaiman has constructed something akin to a new cosmology and mythology here, and while it s wonderful to get lost in his worlds, it s the surprisingly human characters that keep us enthralled and reading volume after volume.

    The speech of Lucifer Morningstar on giving up his responsibilities in Hell would be good enough to justify the five stars review, but there is a lot to like in this new book of the Sandman comic Like the old fashioned chapter headings, teasers of events to come and plot twists to discover issue 21 In which a Family reunion occasions certain recriminations assorted events are set in motion and a relationship thought long done with proves to have much relevance today The prologue brings together for the first time the Sandman s family, at the behest of the Fates The Maid Mother Crone triumvirate we have already met Destiny is the oldest of the Endless he sees the fine traceries the galaxies make as they spiral through the void, he watches the intricate patterns living things make on their journey through time Destiny smells of dust and the libraries of night He leaves no footprints He casts no shadow Desire Never a possession, always the possessor, with skin as pale as smoke, and eyes tawny and sharp like yellow wine Desire is everything you ever wanted Whoever you are Whatever you are Everything.It is said that scattered through Despair s domain are a multitude of tiny windows, hanging in the void Each window looks out on a different scene, being, in our world, a mirror Sometimes you will look into a mirror and feel the eyes of Despair upon you, feel her hook catch and snag on your heart Delirium is the youngest of the Endless She smells of sweat, sour wines, late nights, old leather Dream is rake thin, with skin the colour of falling snow He acumulates names to himself like others make friends but he permits himself few friends.There is a tale that one day in every century Death takes on mortal flesh, better to comprehend what the lives she takes must feel like, to taste the bitter tang of mortality that this is the price she must pay for being the divider of the living from all that has gone before, all that must come after.The seventh Endless is lost, or playing truant, but that s a tale for another time For now, Dream has to return to Hell and claim back, Nada, the mortal he sent there after she refused his love.issue 22 In which the Lord of Dreams makes preparations to visit the realms infernal farewells are said a toast is drunk and in Hell the Adversary makes certain preparations of his own The Sandman says good bye to his friends, he knows he may not return from the place he was warned off in an earlier issue He also makes preparations for his succession a child born in the realm of dreams is offered as a possible solution Hob Gadling, one of the few mortal friends of the Sandman makes a cameo appearance and a toast To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists an may each and every one of us always give the devil his due My favorite panels in this issue are about The Library od Dreams, a place similar in a way to Jasper Fforde s Well of Lost Plots or to Carlos Ruiz Zafon s Cemetery of Forgotten Books I hope I will see of it in future issues.issue 23 In which the Lord of Dreams returns to Hell, and his confrontation with the lord of that realm in which a number of doors are closed for the last time and of the strange disposition of a knife and key This is probably the best single issue in the series so far It looks at the realm of hell as the shadow of Heaven, or precisely, perhaps, Heaven s dark reflection like a landscape hanging inverted in the waters of a lake I ll quote his rant in full, because it is too good to miss or truncate And the mortals I ask you why Why do they blame for all their little failings They use my name as if I spend the entire day sitting on their shoulders, forcing them to commit acts they would otherwise find repulsive The Devil made me do it I have never made one of them do anything Never They live their own tiny lives I do not live their lives for them And then they die, and they come here having transgressed against what they believed to be right , and expect us to fulfill their desire for pain and retribution I don t make them come here They talk of me going around and buying souls, like a fishwife come to market day, never stopping to ask themselves why I need no souls No They belong to themselves They just hate to have to face up to it Lucifer has had enough, he quits, empties Hell of all its inhabitants, locks out the realm and leaves Morpheus to sort out the mess.I ll stop now with the chapter headings and with the detailed synopsis, after all, it would not do to spoil all the plot points Suffice to say that Morpheus has a hot potato in his hands and must pass on the responsibilities for managing Hell before the demons and the dead returning to life invade the other realms He will host a banquet in the Dreaming for all the parties interested mythical creatures from all ages and cultures Faerie, Valhalla, Egypt, the Roman Empire, angels, demons, oriental heroes, chaos and order avatars He will be offered bribes and blackmail and he will have to fight to impose his will on this unruly crowd Great stuff with a dose of black humor to temper the horror parts, capital writing, decent graphics that may be sometimes a letdown for me, but are easy to ignore as I follow the story.Onward to book five.
