Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back in a massive slipcased hardcover! This new edition will include sketches, interviews, design concepts and other never-before-seen bonus material. 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 J.H.

From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN- OVERTURE features 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.

A Library Journal Starred Review "An intriguing anthology of essays...fascinating...academics and readers who enjoy Gaiman's books will appreciate the care put into this impressive collection"--Library Journal "There is joy in seeing such diverse perspectives excavating Neil Gaiman's efforts. Not unexpectedly, the years of his work warrant endless analysis, and this volume is a keen example of such. It's a pleasure to be a part of it."--JH Williams III, New York Times bestselling comic book artist and writer. Neil Gaiman has emerged as one of the most influential literary figures of the 21st century. To borrow a phrase from his viral 2012 University of the Arts commencement speech, Gaiman "makes good art," from his graphic novels to his social media collaborations, award-winning fantasy fiction and beloved children's books. This collection of new essays examines a range of Gaiman's prolific output, with readings of the novels American Gods, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Children's books The Wolves in the Walls and Blueberry Girl and the online short story collection A Calendar of Tales are discussed. Gaiman's return to the serial comic book form with Sandman: Overture is covered, and Artist J.H. Williams III contributes an exclusive interview about his collaboration with Gaiman on Sandman. Cartoonist Judd Winick offers a personal essay on how contemporary artists have been influenced by Gaiman's work.

But as their adventure draws Dream into a final, tragic confrontation with his son Orpheus, the eternal being learns the true meaning of fate and consequences. Collects The Sandman #41-49.

The Novel as Network: Forms, Ideas, Commodities engages with the contemporary Anglophone novel and its derivatives and by-products such as graphic novels, comics, podcasts, and Quality TV. This collection investigates the meaning of the novel in the larger system of contemporary media production and (post-)print culture, viewing the novel through the lens of actor network theory as a node in the novel network. Chapters underscore the deep interconnection between all the aspects of the novel, between the novel as a (literary) form, as an idea, and as a commodity. Bringing together experts from American, British, and Postcolonial Studies, as well as Book, Publishing, and Media Studies, this collection offers a new vantage point to view the novel in its multifaceted expressions today.

When her grandma accidentally sets the kitchen on fire, Lucky can’t hide what’s happening any longer, and she is sent into foster care. She quickly learns that some foster families are okay. Some aren’t. And some really, really aren’t. Is it possible to find a home again when the only one you’ve ever known has been taken from you?
