    I learned how important Neil Gaiman's sensibility was to the sandman universe.Bill Willingham's work is simplistic and rough where Gaiman's was nuanced. He even introduces a cute kid character(junior librarian Billy Nod) to have gee-whiz neato adventures. Reading this felt like watching a hollywood adaptation of a favorite book. Strike that, a WB network tv adaptation of a favorite book. Willingham's "Fables" stuff is nice and fluffy, but I don't think that's what I was looking for in the sandma [...]

    Dois motivos para você largar tudo o que estiver lendo e pegar esse volume imediatamente: Neil Gaiman e Bill Willingham.Fiquei MALUCA com Contos Fabulosos. Não necessariamente porque essa coletânea tenha histórias fantásticas, mas porque elas são incrivelmente leves e divertidas, um presente maravilhoso para todos os fãs de Sandman. São histórias que te deixam sorrindo estupidamente. Ou que, pelo menos, ME deixaram sorrindo estupidamente.Contos Fabulosos reúne três contos fechados, in [...]

    A short collection of comics set in and tied to the Sandman universe, by other authors. So none of this is Neil Gaiman's work, but many of the characters are his. It's kind of uneven, and the volume contains several different components, so I'll speak briefly to each of them.Merv Pumpkinhead, Agent of D.R.E.A.M. - the conceit of Merv Pumpkinseed as a 007-style special agent is slightly amusing, but not really my style, so this particular story didn't do much for me. I do like Merv as a character [...]

    Graphic Novel. This reads exactly like Willingham writing Fables in the Sandman universe. Since that's what it is, I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, but I really couldn't get into it. There's four stories here: Merv Pumpkinhead as the James Bond of the Dreaming; Danny Nod, an original Willingham character that irritated me (see page 77 where Danny acknowledges that "for some reason pretty girls get tied up a lot in boys' adventure fiction" and then walks off and leaves them that way); [...]

    Took me a while to finish this. Not because it was long or hard to read but kind of boring. So boring in fact I forgot to update my to read and write the review yesterday.So Review The book is broken up into 4 stories. Some longer than others. All of the stories had to do with dreamdom or dreamland or however they called it. This is a land where all your dream characters and nightmares reside. These "dream" people have jobs like categorizing your dreams and making up scripts for your dream and [...]

    Fablesi-mehe Bill Willinghami panus Sandmani-maailma. Eks selline päris kõva Fablesi-mekk on man, Gaimani Sandmani süngusest pole haisugi, selline ihhihhii ja ahhahhaa ainult kogu aeg ja kõvasti hollivuudlik on ka. Aga no huvitav oli ikka. Kõige parem oli vististi Bondi paroodia, Merv Pumpkinhead superagendi osas. Raamatukoguhoidja seiklusi kadunud raamatute kojutoomisel elas Willingham hiljem välja Jack of the Fables - nimelises Fablesi kõrvalsarjas ja nõid Thessaly lugu oli sellineidra [...]

    An interesting exploration of Bill Willingham stories in the Sandman's world. Some feel like prototypes for his Fables books; there's a lot of Thessaly in the librarians in Jack of Fables (and Jack himself gets a mention). The Thessaliad I think I'd read before, but if I did, I completely missed most of its meaning. A fantastic story about stories, and very much in Gaiman's style. The other stories were enjoyable as well, but the Thessaliad was definitely the highlight.

    Good Sandman stories. Typical darkness and gore for the Sandman comics. I don't know why I am not creeped out by this in these books but I am unfazed.It is a series of stories about secondary characters ( I love Thessally) and it is nice to see them fleshed out. Not by Gaiman but he overseas the project and it has his stamp of approval. I do recommend this book.

    I haven't read the sandman series yet, needless to say reading this today it has gone up to the top of my graphic reading list.Bill Willingham is my favourite graphic writer so far, fables is still my favourite but this book is amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed it, to the point I was reading it while walking to work, something I've never done! it's a must for all fable fans!

    Overall, this is not the best addition to the Sandman library. Sure, Bill Willingham wrote it, but this volume will only really appeal to die-hard Sandman fans, as this can not really be read on its own, requiring understanding of the Sandman universe. Some of the tales are pretty good, but a few are meh.

    I had a surprisingly hard time reading this. I really enjoyed the story of Nod, and the Everything You Wanted to Know About Dreams But Were Afraid to Ask series. The Thessiliad was ok, but again, just struggled caring about the other characters and the world. Maybe because I haven't read Sandman?

    Merv Pumpkinhead gets Five stars, if he was the orignal James Bond i would`v probably enjoyed those moviesThessaly is one crazy bitch! she gets 5 stars very gory 3 chaptersThe rest of this collection was Blah to me

    Merv Pumpkinhead as an oneiric James Bond is one of my favourites. Also "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Dreams" gives some insights about the realm of Morpheus. A slightly humorous relief from the dark world of Sandman.

    Love this book mainly for the Thessaly story, and the vignettes at the end about Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Dreams. An easy, breezy read.

    Haven't spent much time in the Sandman universe lately, really enjoyed the Bond-esque Merv Pumpkinhead story. Good times.

    Slightly gory and not as satisfying as the Sandman series. Thessaly story was intriguing, and well written. She is a character that begged for further notice.

    Después tengo que chequear bien qué contiene este tomo y si se editó en castellano alguna vez. Por ahora dejo marcada la edición en portugués porque sí.

    Thessaly and Merv (two of my favorite minor characters from Sandman) get expanded? Yes, please. And thank you. Well done, too.
