Reviews of Sandman: Brief Lives (1994)
Review by Zacynthus (2005-03-28)
One of my favourites of the Sandman series. Brief Lives is a romp through multiple dimensions, a new take on the traditional quest story if you will. The plot is engaging and dynamic and the characters are gritty and believeable.
The great thing about the sandman series is you can read each of the collected novels as a standalone if you want to or completely out of order, while reading the other novels will probably help your understanding of the storyline its not 100% neccesary.
All in all this is a great read, it contains something for everyone. If you have never read a "graphic novel" before The Sandman series is an excellent place to begin.
