The third of four volumes THE ANNOTATED SANDMAN reprints Neil Gaiman’s THE SANDMAN with annotations by Leslie Klinger The Annotated Sherlock Holmes The Annotated Dracula that delve into the historical and literary references contained in the series In this volume Leslie Klinger provides historical insights into issues #40 55 of THE SAN. I know I stated with Annotated Sandman Vol 2 that that seemed to be the best material to that point but I m saying that again with Vol3 Would you really want it any other wayThis time I offer some specifics the material from the Brief Lives and Worlds End arcs themselves available in their original separate collections is truly masterful I know Hollywood has been attempting to bring Sandman to the big screen Joseph Gordon Levitt is the latest to give up on the idea for years I d argue that Brief Lives is easily the most cinematic material to this point in the series Is that not enough a selling point for this volumeI have no idea why Delirium isn t considered one of the essential characters created by Neil Gaiman other than that she doesn t really fit the Goth stereotype that no doubt assisted in the popularity of Sandman in the Goth centric 90s hello Tim Burton like Dream and Death do today we also have Lucifer emerging as the third most famous and possibly even eclipsing the other two with a TV series to his credit which is than they can boast and a rebooted comic She s the most fun character in the series and she s got the most immediate appeal as a character less an interesting concept or arc than a thoroughly engaging personality with plenty of dimensions on display at any given moment Brief Lives is a road trip and it s the moment Sandman really starts to take shape with the first climax of the whole thing the discovery of what happened to Destruction But it s also Delirium hijacking the series spectacularlyThe next climax occurs in Worlds End where we discover that Dream will be dead at the end of the series arguably the arc is about the echoes he leaves behind in his wake heh throughout history It s also to my mind Gaiman commenting on the then recent launch of the whole Vertigo imprint which was a seismic shift in the kind of storytelling DC was willing to publish on a regular rather than exceptional basis taking what the likes of Gaiman Alan Moore and Grant Morrison started and applying it to a point where perhaps Gaiman thought it became less special It could also be seen as Gaiman s tip of the cap to the DC tradition of rebooting canon which to that point had only occurred with Crisis on Infinite Earths but would occur again with Zero Hour Infinite Crisis and Flashpoint which incidentally also coincided with the end of the original Vertigo with most of the characters who d been absconded under the banner or at least its creative birth returning to the mainline DC foldAnyway this is truly great storytelling Morrison would attempt something like Worlds End with Seven Soldiers of Victory and The Multiversity while Gaiman was clearly inspired by Moore s Watchmen and by Moore himself in general the Prez story thinking he wasn t worthy but actually vastly exceeding Moore s artistic reach Frank Miller seems to have been inspired by Brief Lives to create Sin City complete with a stripper named Nancy who dances tits out in heavily inked panels Even Lostprobably owes a debt to it certainly the arguments for what Worlds End is all aboutWorlds End incidentally is what my general impression of Sandman was before actually setting out to read all of it It s also the point in the Annotated Sandman volumes funny enough where I began to entertain doubts that Gaiman really knew what he was doing That s the great thing about Leslie Klinger s notes though that he gives readers access to everything including Gaiman s doubts about what he was doing It d be one thing if Klinger merely explained references and allusions which is certainly incredibly handy But he also interjects excerpts from Gaiman s scripts which randomly include essays he writes mostly to himself about his thought process InvaluableIt s really hard to see a publisher letting a writer get away with this level of creative freedom again But we re all the better for Sandman existing like a synthesis of all the reasons literature and culture in general remains as vital today as it ever was By the end of this volume there s no longer any doubt that Sandman deserves to be considered great literature and easily the best comic book ever written

    Update I read volume three again this year because volume four had not yet come to the library when I read it last and wanted to get back into the story If anything the second reading feels fuller than before and I'm almost afraid to start the final volume because I don't want to stories to end If I ever need a lesson in humility I would read Gaiman I like to think I could write something great if I devoted myself Reading Gaiman though I
