Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision.

Older and more powerful than the gods themselves, the Endless are a dysfunctional family of cosmic beings that have ruled over the realms of dream, desire, despair, destiny, destruction, death, and delirium since the beginning of time. But three hundred years ago, one of the mythical beings gave up his duties and left his realm, never to be seen again. BRIEF LIVES tells the tales of Delirium and older brother Dream on a mission to find their missing sibling, as they encounter immortal humans and various deities while trying to locate the prodigal Destruction. 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.

This new edition of BRIEF LIVES collects THE SANDMAN # 41-49 of the classic title.

Unrated Critic Reviews for The Sandman Vol. 7

Fantasy Literature

Destruction gives some of the best commentary on the topic of our Brief Lives, because, as Gaiman suggests, no matter how long we live, to a certain extent all our lives are brief in that they are all transitory in the grand scheme that is Time Eternal.
