    Espectacular viaje por las diferentes épocas de Inglaterra, desde el año 1389 hasta fines del siglo XX, a través de los encuentros que celebran Sandman y un hombre común al que Muerte no toca, una vez cada cien años. Este tipo de números muestran la maestría narrativa de Gaiman y cuán inteligentes y profundas pueden ser las historias de The Sandman.

    A tavern.. The Tavern since 1389, the oldest enterprise of the world. I wonder how come it still stayed? The land reforms of the place is horrible but still. Amazing it lasted throughout.

    Issue#13: Men of Good Fortune (The Doll's House Part IV) and here we have the iconic issue where we are introduced to Hob Gadling, the immortal mortal, and the evolution of his friendship with Morpheus. I'm still a bit conflicted about Hob's character, because I don't think it's really fair that he just randomly gets to live forever while there are people being slaughtered by the Corinthian and babies who don't even get to live past months (wow he really is a man of good fortune), but I think it' Issue#13: Men of Good Fortune (The Doll's House Part IV) and here we have the iconic issue where we are introduced to Hob Gadling, the immortal mortal, and the evolution of his friendship with Morpheus.

The century time jumps were really well done (all the outfits!!!), and Hob going through all sorts of ups and downs in life was also an intriguing aspect of a story about immortality. I do applaud Hob's undying will to live though, and I think Dream was unlucky to have picked someone who has an enormous lust for life, and I feel like he would've been proven right if he had chosen someone else (immortality could be a very scary thing). I also really loved seeing a more human side to Morpheus and I think this is one of those instances where the series did a better job than in the source material, in which Morpheus spends a few more years imprisoned, causing him to miss the latest meeting with Hob, which leads to Hob doing a bit of thinking on his own, and making the final reunion much more rewarding and satisfying for the audience. I'm glad Morpheus has a friend now, he really needs some I think.

    No entiendo por qué esto formó parte de un arco narrativo. No tiene que ver nada con lo que esta sucediendo en el presente. Es una gran coincidencia que el hombre de arena solo aparece en lugares donde se habla ingles, pero quizas estoy buscando la quinta pata. Con todo y eso, amé este cuento sobre inmortalidad y la experiencia humana. Las conversaciones entre Sueño y Hob son muy amenas y el final fue adorable.

    What made me buy the book - I've always wanted to read Sandman but it's huge. So when i was surfing for standalone graphic novels, this one came as a recommendation What I liked about the book - the ominous yet curious storytelling, and the end of course Who will I recommend the book to - a serious reader What did the book teach me - friendships are for the sake of friendships #OBAAT One Book At A Time What made me buy the book - I've always wanted to read Sandman but it's huge.

    Eine nette Geschichte über das Geschenk der Unsterblichkeit und die damit verbundene Einsamkeit, aber leider zum falschen Zeitpunkt in der Serie, um mir nicht doch ein Voranschreiten des eigentlichen Story Arcs zu wünschen. Auf jeden Fall lesenswert, aber vielleicht sollte man hier die Lesereihenfolge missachten.

    A nice cautionary tale, and even personifications need a friend.

    Um pequeno interlúdio bem interessante, construindo um pouco mais o que sabemos sobre Morfeu.

    Death returns. She’s a fun character. The plot on this one seems like another filler.

    Great historic interlude, and a title inspired by Lou Reed :) A Nice runway of historical fashion for Morpheus and plenty of trivia to notice.
