Annotation

"The seventh installment of Neil Gaiman's seminal, New York Times best-selling series, The Sandman Vol. 7: Brief Lives, celebrates its 30th anniversary with an all-new edition, featuring a new cover from artist Dave McKean! Older and more powerful than the gods themselves, the Endless are a dysfunctional family of cosmic beings who have ruled over the realms of dream, desire, despair, destiny, destruction, death and delirium since the beginning of time. But 300 years ago, one of the mythical beings gave up his duties and left his realm, never to be seen again. Now on a mission to find their missing sibling, Delirium and older brother Dream encounter immortal humans and various deities as they try to locate the prodigal Destruction. But as their adventuredraws Dream into a final, tragic confrontation with his son Orpheus, the eternal being learns the true meaning of fate and consequences."--

Summary

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 Brief Lives, Delirium, youngest of the extended family known as the Endless, prevails upon her brother Dream to help find their missing sibling, Destruction. Their subsequent odyssey through the waking world, and their final confrontation with Destruction--as well as the resolution of Dream's painful relationship with his son, Orpheus--will change the Endless forever.
