"Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot." -- Dream

The Sandman series has two major things going for it: sublimely lovely art by a variety of talented artists, and Neil Gaiman's haunting writing... which are basically all that a graphic novel series needs to be brilliant. And both are present in "The Quotable Sandman: Memorable Lines from the Acclaimed Series," which is basically a beautiful

"The Quotable Sandman is exactly as it sounds. This isn't a novel or a comic book but a collection of all of the best quotes in the Sandman Series created by Neil Gaiman. The quotes are even complimented with great illustrations by an remarkable ensemble of artists.

I bought this book thinking it was standalone, it was only $2 and had the price sticker over the part that says "Memorable lines from the acclaimed series". So I initially thought it was a spinoff book in addition to the series. I honestly didn't put much time or thought into buying it.

This was part of Mah Sweetie's 13th Mensaversary gift to me. It's fun to remember the series through the quotations, and I enjoyed seeing the art in this different context. It's a small, hard-back meander through a graphic novel series I'm right fond of. I wouldn't have bought it for myself, but I'm very glad Mah Sweetie did.

Forgot I owned this, until my girlfriend got into reading Sandman. A clever little "gift book" for Gaiman fans. The quotes are fun, but the illustrations are what make this work.
