    Hmm, not sure what I think of this one. It did nothing for me in particular. I grow tired of stories of Cabbages and Kings, and only really enjoyed the one human-centered story, that of dead school boy ghosts. But Big Stuff I can do without, especially when I don't believe in it. The D...

    As I had hoped after reading Volume Three, the fourth volume does get back into the meat of the story and we learn more about the Endless, which is what I've been waiting for all along. This quaint little family convinces Dream that this thing he did a bazillion years ago was totally u...

    Neil Gaiman is at his best when his imagination is peopled with gods and demons?magnificent, outsize personalities, ranging from the eerily transcendent to the surprisingly human?and the tale he chooses to tell in ?Season of Mists? gives him ample room to create a godly and s...

    It is unfortunate that Gaiman seems to be unable to surrender his archetypal cast to either humanity or inhumanity, but lets them sit awkwardly in the middle. Though he often presents Dream and his siblings as falling to love or petty squabbling, their reactions to such are often not t...

    Okay, this is obviously very good, but unlike most of the Gaiman universe, I liked the intimacy of volume 3 more than this huge, epic, operatic occasion where Morpheus decides what to do with Hell. This is high fantasy, and beautifully written, and with some poignancy as Dream determin...

    Beware of gifts from the Devil, a lesson that Dream learned too late when he entered the realm of Hell, ready to do battle with Lucifer if necessary, only to have the Lord of Hell tell his gift he was closing shop. There was to be no battle unless Dream wanted it so and only a gift for...

    You've heard the expression about the gates of Hell being opened, but what if the gates of Hell are locked? Lucifer evicts his tenants, abdicates and gives the key to Morpheus. The demons want back in; various mythological creatures want the property given to them; but where do the sou...

    One of my all-time favorite Sandman story arcs. Lucifer decides that he's sick of being the lord of Hell, so to relieve himself of his duties and cause Morpheus some trouble as well, he closes down Hell and gives Morpheus the key. Now Morpheus must contend with the hordes of supernatur...

    This is the point in the series where shit gets real. For one thing, this is the first glimpse you have of how truly mythically all-encompasing this series is. You have Odin, the Lucifer, some Faeries, Demons, a Japanese storm god, Bast and Anubis, two angelic presences, and other ...

    After reading more of Neil Gaiman?s classic ?Sandman? series, I never would have thought that the stories would get better and better and the fourth volume ?Season of Mists? certainly did not disappoint me! Dream (Morpheus) definitely got his hands full in this volume that wi...

    "But even if Destiny could tell you, he will not. Destiny holds his secrets. The Garden of Destiny. You would know it if you saw it. After all, you wander it until you die. Or Beyond. For the paths are long, and even in death, there is no ending to them." Ugh. It's really too bad...

    Now the good stuff really gets started. Introducing most of the Endless, we discover intrigue with Destiny, some deep sadness in Delirium, friendship in Death, capriciousness in Desire, and maybe a bit of reasonableness in Despair. Dream is there, of course, and he's rightly annoyed...

    The speech of Lucifer Morningstar on giving up his responsibilities in Hell would be good enough to justify the five stars review, but there is a lot more to like in this new book of the Sandman comic. Like the old fashioned chapter headings, teasers of events to come and plot twists t...

    For me, Season of Mists (The Sandman volume 4, issues 21-28) is where Neil Gaiman really starts to unspool the threads of his own magic at length, weaving them to the first filaments of the series? foundation that we found in Preludes and Nocturnes and The Doll?s House. Here we get...

    What happens when Lucifer decides to leave hell? Season of Mists, the fourth volume of The Sandman answers that question as Dream heads to Hell once again, this time to release a former lover who has been imprisoned and tortured for thousands of years. Upon arrival, he finds Hell deser...

    Definitely my favorite one so far. I was disappointed in vol 3 but things really felt like they came together in this one. The family meeting at the beginning was great and a great lead in to all that follows. ...

    This is my favorite entry in the Sandman series so far! Here we learn a lot-for instance, all the supposed stand alone stories in Sandman 3: The Dream Country, were NOT all stand alones. Some of them do have connections that are referenced here. The introduction by the irascible...

    Seasons of mist is definitely the best of the Sandman series so far, Destiny of the Endless is visited by the Fates and as a result calls a family meeting. Present are Destiny, Dream, Death, the twins Desire and Despair, and Delirium, only one of the Endless is missing which is an intr...

    It was so, SO good, it left me in weird state of mind - it's like you're high, but not really. Remember the guy from vol. 3, the writer, who was punished by Morpheus by having too many ideas? I think it's Gaiman himself, having all those ideas, but not being unhappy because of tha...

    The Sandman Vol. 4: Season of Mists: Deities scramble to fill a vacancy in Hell After the stand-alone stories of Vol 3, many of which only feature Morpheus in the background, in Vol 4 the Sandman takes center stage once again. The Prologue sets the stage for a new story-arc, as Des...

    An endless family meeting has been called. Soon after they all arrive, Desire taunts Morpheus about the way he treated a former lover, Nada and condemned her to hell. His sister Death agrees, and he decides there and then to visit hell to bring her back. On his arrival, Lucifer expels ...

    I?ve been gradually warming to this series as it?s picked up momentum, and Vol. 4 proved to be a glorious realization of its vast potential. What begins as the weirdest family reunion of all time takes a turn when Dream?s family calls him out for the very douche bag move of conde...

    Mind explodingly good. World: The art of the series has been fantastic, atmospheric, creative and just beautiful. The world building here I can't even explain how it made my brain explode. The depth, the creativity, I can't truly express it in words that would do it justice. Just re...

    I find myself at a loss for words whenever I come to review a volume of this series, simply because it is just that good. What is there to talk of that will do it justice? Could I speak of the intelligent weaving of mythological figures with distinctively human personalities? No. Not e...

    I'm starting to think maybe these comics just aren't for me. This was hard to get through. I enjoyed the first scene where Dream and his siblings get together. Most of the story involved Dream going to Hell to retrieve a woman he had condemned there 10,000 years ago for rejecting him (...

    "I think hell?s something you carry around with you. Not somewhere you go." Season of Mists is the fourth volume in the Sandman graphic novel series. Lucifer has given Dream the key to Hell, however Dream has a lot of other responsibilities and so decides the key should be given t...

    Since The Doll's House, I knew that Gaiman's The Sandman will soon have a special place in my heart. I was nineteen then, and this piece of literature was also a way for me to connect with my mentor (whom I was infatuated with as well). I was eager to get back to the major story arc wi...
