*One of the most popular and critically acclaimed comic book titles of all time, New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman's masterpiece THE SANDMAN set new standards for mature, lyrical fantasy and graphic narrative. Now, Vertigo and DC Comics are proud to present the second of four definitive Absolute Editions collecting this groundbreaking series in its entirety.
THE ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOLUME TWO reprints issues 21-39 of THE SANDMAN and feature remastered coloring prepared especially for this edition on all nineteen issues, as well as brand-new inks on THE SANDMAN #34 by the issue's penciller, Colleen Doran. This volume also includes two never-before-reprinted stories by Gaiman (a Desire story painted by John Bolton, and a prose Sandman story previously only available to buyers of the very first Sandman statue, released in 1991), a complete reproduction of the never-before-reprinted one-shot THE SANDMAN: A GALLERY OF DREAMS, and the original script and penicls by Gaiman and Kelley Jones for Chapter Two of "Season of Mists" from THE SANDMAN #23.
