Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"Wake up, sir. We're here." It's a simple enough opening line--although not many would have guessed back in 1991 that this would lead to one of the most popular and critically acclaimed comics of the second half of the century.

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 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

An attempt to summon and imprison Death, results, instead, in the capture of Morpheus, the Sandman, who must regain the tools of his powers. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
Saying this isn't the best SANDMAN volume isn't saying much, since the entire set is overall excellent, and it would be depressing if the series hadn't improved on its beginning. Anyway, this is where you need to start -- it sets up the whole Dream mythos and establishes his character as he accumulates all his lost tools. The journey takes him from a house whose inner walls are made of a body turned inside out, to Hell itself, to the scene of a diner massacre, and even to the home of the Martian Manhunter.
The art is a bit iffy. Sam Kieth wasn't the best match for SANDMAN and he admitted as much when he left. But once Mike Dringenberg and Malcolm Jones III come on board, the art gets noticeably better and, well, more SANDMAN-esque. Look at the difference between Dr. Dee in "Passengers," where he looks like a pathetic little psycho, and the same character in "24 Hours" and "Sound and Fury," where he is a truly frightening presence (especially on p. 175, panel 4, "Because I can"). Not to mention the first appearance of Death at the end of the book (though this may have been removed depending on which edition you find -- it was never meant to be included at the tail end of this volume; in any event, it continues to be available in the second volume).
I'd also praise Neil Gaiman but what is there to say that hasn't already been said a million times?

"GLACK. NAAAGH. FLEURGH." Such were my squeals of pain when forced by my conscience to only give this four stars, but this was written when Neil was still learning how to write down his stunning imagination and so does not rank quite as highly as the incredible latter Sandman books. Still, it is well worth buying. Praise, then criticism I think. Well, the second half of the book does not put a foot wrong and has one of the most chilling horror stories in the history of pretty much anything. '24 Hours' is truly terrifying with a ravaged man pushing people's minds over the edge in a cafeteria. 'The Sound of Her Wings' is a beautiful introduction for everyone's fave anthropomorphic personification, Death, who amazingly turns out to be a sensible, cute, perky young goth girl. The first half of the book is a bit more uneven. The opening story is written very well in the style of old English horror and has pretty good art by Sam Keith, who captures the oppressive Edwardian feel very well. The second story is also written well, but patchy and cartoony art lets it down. Keith's portrayals of Cain and Abel are excellent, as is the intensly cute gargoyle Irving (sorry Cain, Goldie)but his artwork for the Hecate and the appearence of Morpheus upon seeing his castle don't cut the mustard. The third and second stories are good once again with an excellent battle of imagination in Hell and everybodies fave occultist from Newcastle, Sam Keith's Hell is also pictured well, the oozing flesh and rubbery consistancy takes on a life of it's own, and the Hellfire club art is excellent. Unfortunatly we then come to the moderatley pleasing fourth issue where Neil makes some fundamental mistakes.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Format: Taschenbuch
Preludes and Nocturnes is easily the weakest of the individual Sandman novels... but still better than most of the funny-books out there. The first chapter is a self-contained story dealing with Morpheus' seventy-year imprisonment by an amateur English magician, and his escape. The rest of the novel deals with his adventures re-claiming his three tools: his sand pouch, his ruby, and his helmet. The second chapter is set-up for the rest of the story, featuring DC Comics' horror mainstays Cain & Abel. The third story is one of the best in this book, guest-starring Hellblazer's John Constantine, whose ex-girlfriend is in possession of the bag of sand. Part four is one of my all-time favorite Sandman stories: "A Hope in Hell", where Morpheus goes to the pit, running into Lucifer Morningstar (one of the best characters in the series), and challenging a demon to regain his helmet. Parts five through seven involve a super-villain named Dr. Destiny (not to be confused with the real Destiny, Dream's brother) escaping from a madhouse, going on a murderous rampage in one of the most horrific stories I've ever read in a comic. Part six "24 Hours," especially so, where Dr. Destiny slowly drives the customers in an overnight diner mad, eventually killing each other. But chances are, if you're buying this, and you've heard of Neil Gaiman's Sandman before, it's for part eight, "The Sound of Her Wings", the introduction of the most famous (and nicest) member of the regular cast, Dream's big sister Death. She shows up to take her depressed brother with her for a hard day's work of taking people to the next life, quoting Mary Poppins all the while. This is a fine story, a nice promise of the kind of story that there are to look forward to later on.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

6 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von "selfobsessed" am 25. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Preludes and Nocturnes starts in quite a clichéd manner, with the stereotypical occult portrayal and the rather redundant phrases used in the spell used to evoke Death, but quickly accelerates. The chapter where Morpheus travels to Hell is truly excellent, and I swear that Lucifer Morningstar *is* Davie Bowie! The battle between Morpheus and an unassuming demon is quite invenitve. I absolutely detested the inclusion of superheroes, as I felt it sort of cheapens the whole book, and makes it temporarily childish. I am currently reading The Doll's House, and I will give you one piece of advice if you wish to read these books in order: take note of small, seemingly unimportant phrases, as they tie-in beautifully in the subsequent chapters and even different books! You must *NOT* miss this. I felt a little foolish reading a comic book at first, but you forget all this when the powerful story washes over you. Most definitely worth the money. Read them in order.
