THE SANDMAN, written by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, was the most acclaimed comic book title of the 1990s. A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, THE SANDMAN is also widely considered one of the most original and artistically ambitious series of the modern age. By the time it concluded in 1996, it had made significant contributions to the artistic maturity of comic books and become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right.

Now, DC Comics is proud to present this comics classic in an all-new Absolute Edition format. The first of four beautifully designed slipcased volumes, THE ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOL. 1 collects issues 1-20 of The Sandman and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, on the first 18 issues, as well as a host of never-before-seen extra material, including the complete original Sandman Proposal, a gallery of character designs from Gaiman and the artists who originated the look of the Sandman, and the original script to the World Fantasy Award-winning THE SANDMAN #19, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” together with reproductions of the issue’s original pencils by Charles Vess.

Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall

Price: PhP380.00

Condition: Very good condition, minor shelf wear.

Don’t miss a softcover edition of the acclaimed hardcover graphic novel from FABLES creator Bill Willingham and a star-studded array of artists! This volume, set in the early days of Fabletown, long before the FABLES series began, featuring sequences illustrated by Charles Vess, Brian Bolland, John Bolton, Michael Wm. Kaluta, James Jean, Mark Buckingham, Jill Thompson and more, 1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL is both an entry point to the critically acclaimed series and an essential part of Willingham’s enchanting and imaginative FABLES mythos.Traveling in Arabia as an Ambassador from the exiled FABLES community, Snow White is captured by the local sultan who wants to marry her (and then kill her). But the clever Snow attempts to charm the sultan instead by playing Scheherazade, telling him fantastic stories for a total of 1,001 nights. Running the gamut from horror to dark intrigue to mercurial coming-of-age, FABLES:1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL reveals the secret histories of familiar FABLES characters through a series of compelling and visually illustrative tales.

 


John Constantine, Hellblazer (Set of 4)

Includes:

John Constantine, Hellblazer: Original Sins by Jamie Delano
John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits by Garth Ennis
John Constantine, Hellblazer: Fear and Loathing by Garth Ennis
John Constantine, Hellblazer: Tainted Love by Garth Ennis

Price: PhP800.00

Condition: very good to good+ used/read with plastic cover (taped). Still very solid reading copies.

Original Sins collections several early issues of John Constantine’s first break-away from Swamp Thing into his own monthly title. It is here that John obtains his demon’s blood from Nergal.

If you want to see where much of the inspiration for the movie came from, Dangerous Habits is the book to read. Centered around Constantine’s bout with lung cancer, this is a far darker take on the situation than you will see portrayed in film.

Fear and Loathing gives us more Gabriel than the brief glimpse we get in Dangerous Habits. Gabriel’s story here is also a lot less viewing-audience-friendly than it was in the movie.

In Tainted Love John must face a vampire that has stalked the Constantine family for generations and the return of an ex-girlfriend, Kit.

Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation (Hardbound)
By Ray Bradbury, Tim Hamilton

Price: PhP300.00

Condition: Hardbound, NO DUSTJACKET (missing), public library stamp on first blank page. Very good condition, minor shelf wear, clean almost like new with no other markings. Image above for reference only, again missing dustjacket.

“Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn ’em to ashes, then burn the ashes.”

For Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene is perfume, this is not just an official slogan. It is a mantra, a duty, a way of life in a tightly monitored world where thinking is dangerous and books are forbidden.

In 1953, Ray Bradbury envisioned one of the world’s most unforgettable dystopian futures, and in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, the artist Tim Hamilton translates this frightening modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. As could only occur with Bradbury’s full cooperation in this authorized adaptation, Hamilton has created a striking work of art that uniquely captures Montag’s awakening to the evil of government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of philosophy, theology, and literature.
Including an original foreword by Ray Bradbury and fully depicting the brilliance and force of his canonic and beloved masterwork, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is an exceptional, haunting work of graphic literature.


Stephen King’s The Stand Vol. 3: Soul Survivors (Hardbound)
By Aguirre-Sacasa, Perkins and Martin

Except it’s tornado season, True Believers, and not everyone Nick and Tom meet is on the side of the angels. Hell hath no fury like Julie Lawry, another survivor of the plague… Collects The Stand: Soul Survivors #1-5.
