This is the final volume–if you exclude the prequel—of the Sandman series, but it is really more coda than conclusion. Half of it consists of the “wake” itself (Morpheus’ wak, funeral services, and related events) and the other half of three stand-alone tales that provide a philosophical commenta...

Probably 4.5 stars. I really loved this until the final piece The Tempest. I wasn't a big fan of that section. I think I might like it more on a re-read for meaning, but it was a bit lackluster on first impression compared to the emotion of the other sections. However I'm rounding up to 5 stars b...

The final volume in the Sandman series is a bit odd, and I'm wavering between giving it 3 and 4 stars. The first half of the book deals with the wake held for Morpheus, and is rather touching and satisfactory wrap-up to the series. The final half, however, seem anticlimatic and out of place. The...

This is the end.Well volume 10 is more of an epilogue.
This was intriguing series, sure it had low points but when it was good it was among best graphic novels and among best Gaimans work overall.Only thing that was bad throughout the series where illustrations, there where several different illus...

So it's over. I feel a bit sad that it is. And especially because The Tempest arc was so beautiful. Neil Gaiman knows how to break your heart. And melt it. And do many other things to it. Bloody bastard. Sigh. I need a rehab, I think.

While it's true the series could've ended with the preceding volume, I'm glad we're granted this final one with its gentle pace, its thoughtfulness, its forgiveness. (Near the end, I realized it's the only volume without even a bit of gore. Though the previous instances of explicit horror were ne...
