Description

A humble young monk and a magical, shape-changing fox find themselves romantically drawn together. As their love blooms, the fox learns of a devilish plot by a group of demons and a Japanese emperor to steal the monk's life. One of the most popular and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time, Neil Gaiman's award-winning masterpiece The Sandman set the standard for mature, lyrical fantasy in the modern comics era. Illustrated by an exemplary selection of the medium's most gifted artists, the series is a rich blend of modern and ancient mythology in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven. In The Dream Hunters, Gaiman and acclaimed artist Yoshitaka Amano collaborate to reveal a haunting new aspect of the Dream King. Words and paintings combine in this illuminated fable of ancient Japan, spinning an ageless story of a humble young monk and the magical fox who falls in love with him. Threatened by a dark prophecy, the fox and the monk each call for aid from the Mikado of All Night's Dreaming, whose intervention transports their tale of love and sacrifice into the immortal realm of the Endless. The Sandman: Dream Hunters 30th Anniversary Edition (Prose Version) collects Neil Gaiman's original prose novella illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano.
