Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman’s legendary series is back! THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE heralds New York Times best-selling writer Neil Gaiman’s return to the art form that made him famous, ably abetted by artistic luminary JH Williams III (BATWOMAN, PROMETHEA), whose lush, widescreen images provide an epic scope to The Sandman’s origin story. From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE will feature cameo appearances by fan-favorite characters such as The Corinthian, Merv Pumpkinhead and, of course, the Dream King’s siblings: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny. “People have often asked me what happened to Morpheus to make it possible for him to be captured in THE SANDMAN #1,” Gaiman said. “And now they get to find out. And finding out, they get to learn secrets of the Endless that I’ve kept to myself for 25 years. Family secrets. And I should warn you: one of the Endless dies on page five.”

Neil Gaiman - Zerbrechliche Dinge
Ein liegengebliebener Leihwagen auf einem einsamen Highway, ein düsteres Zirkuszelt voller versteckter Geheimnisse, die flirrende Hitze der ägyptischen Wüste in ihrer menschenfeindlichen Schönheit - egal, wohin Neil Gaiman seine Figuren führt, sie werden stets mit der Zerbrechlichkeit ihrer eigenen Welt konfrontiert - Abgründen, in denen manch Unglücklicher verloren ging. Wo zum Beispiel bleibt die Vermisstenanzeige für die unglückliche Misses Finch, die während einer Zirkusnummer für immer verschwand? Und wer hat die Mitglieder des Clubs der Epikuräer je wieder gesehen, die sich der Suche nach noch nie gekosteten kulinarischen Genüssen verschrieben haben? Wohin ist der Junge auf der Party verschwunden, der endlich seine Angst vor Mädchen überwinden wollte? Der Autor ist Träger sämtlicher Fantasy- Preise (Lokus-, Hugo-,World- Fantasy-Award u.a.) und Bestsellerautor der Comicserie 'Sandman' und 'American Gods'.
Neil Gaiman - Death - The Time of Your Life
Death incarnate, as defined by master storyteller Neil Gaiman (THE SANDMAN), is a genuinely likeable young girl with a fondness for ankhs who truly cares about people.

A practical, honest, and intelligent story that illuminates "the miracle of death."

Neil Gaiman - The Absolute Sandman 2.
THE SANDMAN, written by New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, THE SANDMAN is also widely considered one of the most original and artistically ambitious series of the modern age. By the time it concluded in 1996, it had made significant contributions to the artistic maturity of comic books and had become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right. Now, DC Comics is proud to present this comics classic in an all-new Absolute Edition format. The second of four beautifully designed slipcased volumes, THE ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOL. 2 collects twenty tales of THE SANDMAN and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, as well as never-before-seen extra material.
Neil Gaiman - The Sandman 10. - The Wake
When Neal Gaiman penned the seventy-fifth issue of The Sandman he made history in two ways. For the first time in comic book history, a profitable on-going series was being brought to a conclusion. More importantly the threads that he began to spin in the very first issue are now brought together and tied together in a loose bundle that wraps the whole package up nicely and yet leaves him the option to slip another present into the bundle at some later date. Sandman: The Wake is comprised of the last six issues of the regular Sandman comic book series. The first three cover the actual wake of Morpheus, King of Dreams. In this story within a story characters from the series meet to remember and pay their respects to the fallen immortal. In eulogies which alternate between respect, praise and villification, the Dream Lord's character is summed up and his flaws laid bare to, literally, all the world. In the final chapter of The Wake the reader is returned to an earlier time in the saga of the Sandman, when an aging "William Shekespeare" having just completed his final play "The Tempest," commissioned at the bequest of the Dream Lord, reflects on his life, his struggles, tragedies and a bargain for greatness he made with Morpheus many years earlier. In perhaps the series' most poigniant line, a statement which ironically becomes the Sandman's own epitaph, Morpheus reveals that he made the bargain because "...I am the King of Stories, but I have no story of my own." Carefully balancing melancholy and tragedy with hope and determination the beautifully illustrated and even more beautifully written Sandman: The Wake stands counter to Morpheus' own words and serves as an extrodinary ending to one of the most incredible stories in the history of comics.
Neil Gaiman - Coraline (angol)
Coraline lives with her preoccupied parents in part of a huge old house--a house so huge that other people live in it, too... round, old former actresses Miss Spink and Miss Forcible and their aging Highland terriers ("We trod the boards, luvvy") and the mustachioed old man under the roof ("'The reason you cannot see the mouse circus,' said the man upstairs, 'is that the mice are not yet ready and rehearsed.'") Coraline contents herself for weeks with exploring the vast garden and grounds. But with a little rain she becomes bored--so bored that she begins to count everything blue (153), the windows (21), and the doors (14). And it is the 14th door that--sometimes blocked with a wall of bricks--opens up for Coraline into an entirely alternate universe. Now, if you're thinking fondly of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, you're on the wrong track. Neil Gaiman's Coraline is far darker, far stranger, playing on our deepest fears. And, like Roald Dahl's work, it is delicious.
Neil Gaiman - Ed Kramer - Gene Wolfe - Steve Brust - Clive Barker - Tori Amos - The Sandman: Book of Dreams
"There is a dark king who rules our dreams from a place of shadows and fantastic things. He is Morpheus, the lord of story. Older than humankind itself, he inhabits -- along with Destiny, Death, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium, his Endless sisters and brothers -- the realm of human consciousness. His powers are myth and nightmare -- inspirations, pleasures, and punishments manifested beneath the blanketing mist of sleep. Surrender to him now." A stunning collection of visions, wonders, horrors, hallucinations, and revelations from Clive Barker, Barbara Hambly, Tad Williams, Gene Wolfe, Nancy A. Collins, and sixteen other incomparable dreamers -- inspired by the groundbreaking, bestselling graphic novel phenomenon by Neil Gaiman.

MirrorMask is a breathtaking film written by bestselling author Neil Gaiman and brought to life through the vision of acclaimed artist and director Dave McKean.

Neil Gaiman - Felkavaró tartalom
Új novelláskötetében Neil Gaiman a maszkjainkat lerántva próbálja feltárni sebezhető, igazi énünket. Finom humora és borzongató képzelőereje olyan novellákat eredményez, melyeket újra meg újra el akarunk olvasni. A Fekete kutya című, eddig sehol máshol nem olvasható történet az Amerikai istenek világában játszódik, és Árnyék kalandjait szövi tovább. A gyűjtemény többi része is hasonlóan varázslatos: Gaiman számos stílust és műfajt – horror- és kísértettörténet, science-fiction és tündérmese, tanmese és vers – felvonultatva deríti fel az emberi érzések, élmények és tapasztalatok birodalmát. Egy novella az Óceán az út végén mellé, egy öregkori Sherlock Holmes-rejtély, egy közösségi média inspirálta kisprózafüzér és további húsz írás található a kötetben, mely méltó párja a Tükör és füstnek és a Törékeny holmiknak.
Neil Gaiman - Terry Pratchett - Good Omens
There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . . First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.
Neil Gaiman - Chu's Day

But a whole day of adventure will test Chu's sneeze-resisting powers to the limit - there's the library (dusty books!), the diner (pepper!), and then the circus (all those animals!). How big can a sneeze really be? Just wait and see . . .
