In Preludes and Nocturnes, Neil Gaiman weaves the story of a man interested in capturing the physical manifestation of Death but who instead captures the King of Dreams. By Gaiman's own admission there's a lot in this first collection that is awkward and ungainly--which is not to say there are not frequent moments of greatness here. The chapter "24 Hours" is worth the price of the book alone; it stands as one of the most chilling examples of horror in comics. And let's not underestimate Gaiman's achievement of personifying Death as a perky, overly cheery, cute goth girl! All in all, I greatly prefer the roguish breaking of new ground in this book to the often dull precision of the concluding volumes of the Sandman series. --Jim Pascoe --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The story is good but It turns out I don't much like graphic novels. For those wondering how graphic novels display on the Kindle I was pleasantly surprised.Published 16 months ago by Robert Pigeon
This was my first foray into a true graphic novel. I liked it more as the story developed but I wasn't crazy about it. It was alright. It felt disjointed and scattered at times.Published 17 months ago by Mediaevalgirl
A great starting point to get in to horror and graphic novels - a beautifully imagined fantasy cross real world. I highly recommend this series.Published 19 months ago by Al. Mo.
Overall it wasn't a bad book, but when it comes down to it, it was a child's tale told in an adult format. Read morePublished 21 months ago by alex
