About The Author. Select Parent Grandparent Teacher Kid at heart.
Released in , well after the end of the series, Endless Nights collects seven short comics, each centered around one of the Endless. Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction, Destiny, and, of course, Dream, characters familiar to Sandman readers, each take center stage in their own story. The comics in Endless Nights vary widely in tone and style, from a series of stark vignettes about Despair to a story about a mysterious pile of stuff from the future, featuring Destruction.
Most offer perspectives on characters who appear only briefly in the existing comics. Endless Nights opens with a story about Death, which the WTF readers found underwhelming, despite being charmed by the character of Death herself.
Few hints are ever given in the series as to exactly why the Endless exist. These are themes that feature prominently in Gaiman's prose and his current film work, and it's obvious he's very engaged in this one. Jan 03, Abigail rated it it was amazing.

Despair's 15 portraits are interesting they do not tell a story, more so brief snippets from various lives but I found the artwork to be cloudy, confusing and rather ugly in some parts yes, I know that is the point, but this was a bit much even to that degree. Folklore, myth, and tales of olden times given a modern perspective weave together as a woman uses the power of Desire to get what she wants--at a terrible cost.
We generally agreed that the Destruction chapter would have been much more interesting as a fully-realized science fiction plot instead of a brief aside about a barely-there character. More than a fish needs the river.
More than a hearth needs to beat. You are all that I desire.
