APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In Neil Gaiman’s inventive story, the space between sleep and dreaming can be deadly. One of the most respected graphic novels ever, the first entry in the Sandman saga begins in 1916, when occultist Roderick Burgess sets out to trap Death, but accidentally traps the personification of dreams instead. Dream’s entrapment knocks every living creature that sleeps off balance—and sets off a cataclysmic chain of events. We were blown away by Gaiman’s world-building, not to mention the philosophical and metaphysical concepts he stitches seamlessly into his story. With illustrations that mirror the dark, dreamlike quality of the tale and a plot that’s spooky and suspenseful, there’s no wonder Preludes & Nocturnes is considered a classic.
