Stand Alone or Series: 12th book in the Sandman series

Rating: 4/5 stars

This is a set of stories featuring the Endless. Each Endless gets its own story. Although I didn’t enjoy this as much as the rest of the Sandman series, it was still fun to revisit the series.

Each story features a different Endless. A wide variety of illustration styles are seen throughout and I enjoyed them all. Gaiman's writing continues to be spot on and really captures the mood of each of the Endless.

If you are a fan of the Sandman series this is a must read. The characters and their stories are a bit ambiguous, but then the Endless are vague and vast concepts so I felt that it fit well.

All of the illustration styles fit their stories well. Illustration ranged from the beautiful (Morpheus’s story), to the incredibly disturbing (Despair’s chapter).

Overall an excellent addition to the Sandman series. A must read if you are a fan of the series. I didn’t think the stories were as good as the original series, but they were still entertaining. The illustration covered a wide breadth of styles and was very good.
