Read full description of the books:
I read all the volumes of The Sandman and loved it but this is a spinoff work, published in 2009, a fable of a monk and a fox set in “old Japan,” that has the feel of something Gaiman adapted from a centuries old myth, but in fact was invented whole cloth all by his lonesome. And Japan is a good place for a story of this mythological complexity, because it is a country and culture steeped in mythologies and monsters, in a belief in yokai.
The Dream Hunters focuses on a monk and two spirit creatures in the form of a badger and a fox who want to oust the monk from his abode. They set up a bet that they both lose, but the fox also loses her heart to the monk in the bargain. The master of demons also wants to usurp the power of the monk, and the fox-spirit intervenes on the monk’s behalf, but Morpheus, the Dream Himself (from the Sandman) intervenes.
The Dream Hunters was first written by Gaiman as a novella, illustrated by Yoshitako Amano; it has blossomed into a wonderful graphic novel. The story is beautifully written, but it is more than matched by the amazing P. Craig Russell’s artwork, drawing on influences from Asian art (particularly woodblock prints) and European Art Noveau (particularly the work of Aphonse Mucha) to early Disney. The coloring by Lovern Kindzierski is also lovely, muted, with an ancient woodblock feel to it.
This is a stand-alone volume, doesn’t require you know the whole of The Sandman to appreciate its subtle beauties.
