    1. Neil Gaiman P. Craig Russell Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Sandman: The Dream Hunters book, this is one of the most wanted Neil Gaiman P. Craig Russell author readers around the world.

    2. 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 cr [...]

    3. A quite enjoyable tale with a classic moral transcending the Oriental flavor, with cameos from a few of our favorite Sandman characters, including Dream, himself.The art is, I believe, much better than most of the previous Sandman series, with clean lines and beautiful images, but that's also a taste of the thematic style, so obviously it was intentional on every level and not just an improvement on the series which is ostensibly ended (but not quite, obviously.) :)It was fun and light, with all [...]

    4. Neil Gaiman wrote a Japanese fable and apparently fooled a bunch of fans and academics, who all believed he had adapted an actual folk tale within his Sandman universe. Even his illustrator, the amazing P. Craig Russell thought this was just a really seamless absorption of a Japanese story into Morpheus' realm, but nope, it's 100% Gaiman. I read a lot of zen fairy tales when I began reading about Buddhism years ago, and while I am no expert, I can see why readers were fooled: the tone, rhythm an [...]

    5. Oh my goodness. I think my heart has just stopped!Sandman: The Dream Hunters is a superb addition to the Sandman canon and once again, shows us the literary storytelling genius of Neil Gaiman. P. Craig Russell also deserves whole-hearted praise for his depiction of a Gaiman classic tale focusing on the love between a fox (who adopts the form of a beautiful woman) and a monk. The story is heart-breaking at times and focuses on the real meanings behind love, devotion, faith and life.Honestly, this [...]

    6. As a huge Sandman fan, I’m pretty easy to please, but this was wonderful.Sandman: The Dream Hunters is an adaptation of a short story that Neil Gaiman wrote that combined both Dream from Sandman and Asian fairytale elements. Dream Hunters is the story of a monk and a fox who go to great lengths for each other. The monk is minding his own business at his temple when both a fox and a badger try to convince him to move along and free up the nice spot. The ways in which they tried to persuade the [...]

    7. Even though the story is based on a tale from Gaiman's head, it completely reads like a Japanese fairy tale. The story is a beautiful unrequited romance and the illustrations are gorgeous. I also like how the ending is left a little bit open, so that the reader can hope they ended up together.

    8. P. Craig Russell is one of my favorite comic artists. He's known for his adaptions of classic plays and operas. He's also adapted a bunch of Neil Gaiman stories including Coraline. I'm not sure why Russell likes adapting Gaiman so much. I prefer his adaptions of older stories, but the setting of this story actually works really well for Russell's style. Although technically a Sandman story, this can certainly be read without involving that lengthy series. It could be considered a story in that u [...]

    9. I read this to compare with the original illustrated narrative version of Dream Hunters. It was good, but not as good as the first. It really started to work for me in the second half of the book the though. At the point where you see the monk's dream, Russel cut out all the narrative for this part and did the entire dream with only the pictures to speak. It was really well done.The afterword was very enlightening. Neil Gaiman admits that he never meant anyone to take the afterword of the origin [...]

    10. Linda fábula de Neil Gaiman y con increíbles ilustraciones de P. Craig Russell. Todo se vuelve aún más genial al saber que es una historia creada completamente por Gaiman, y no la adaptación de un antiguo cuento japonés, como se podría suponer al leer los tintes mágicos y líricos que tiene el relato.

    11. This is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 1999 illustrated novella, The Sandman: The Dream Hunters. The novella, an invented Japanese folktale with some Sandman elements thrown in, is excellent. P. Craig Russell turned the story into a four issue comic miniseries, which is collected in this volume. The story - which appears to be pretty much copy/pasted from the novella - remains strong. And Russell's artwork is well done and does a good job of complementing the story. However, I'm not really sure [...]

    12. Soñar despierto es posible con la saga Sandman. Vuelve a demostrarlo Gaiman.Odio sus novelas, amo sus comics. Dicen que Moore es el mejor autor para comic, y este es el chiste que más funciona conmigo. Neil es un genio que han puesto en nuestro planeta con la obligación de acercarnos a lo que no podemos concebir con nuestra mente.Un viaje como siempre onírico, mezclado con el cuento clásico. En el que el amor, terror y fantasía es tratado en su máxime. Finalizando todo esto con una morale [...]

    13. I have both versions of this illustrated story. The text is largely similar (partially adapted for Russell's version) in both fairy stories, but with different illustrators. Both versions are equally beautiful in their own way, and the story itself is lovely and ethereal.

    14. One of the best Sandman stories I have read. A must read for Sandman fans and fantasy and mythology lovers.

    15. It's a bit tough to wrap my head around both Yoshitaka Amano's and P. Craig Russell's The Dream Hunters. They each have their merits. This comic does a nice job of depicting descriptions found in the original, though I prefer Amano's illustrations. The adaptation feels earthier and more grounded in reality while the original has more of a dreamlike quality (ha). I'm already partial to Final Fantasy games so this preference should not surprise. :)

    16. And it is even more approriate to start my reading year with Sandman I also finished last year with it :) a very cute and melancholic story :)

    17. This is a wonderful comic adaptation illustrated by P. Craig Russell (whose work on the graphic novel version of The Graveyard Book I also greatly enjoy), released a decade after the original illustrated novella, which I read last year. Neil had fans and academics fooled (Russell and myself included) – everyone believed he had adapted an old Japanese fable to fit into his Sandman universe, while he had in fact entirely made it up. Knowing this, the story itself is even more brilliant and awe-i [...]

    18. Pufff menos mal que me quedaban más cosas de Sandman por leer más allá de la saga principal. Me cuesta, me cuesta la idea de desprenderme de este cómic, de dejar de tener material nuevo sobre el Señor del Sueño. Así que ayer leí este tomo suelto, Los cazadores de sueños, que a su vez está basado en una novela del propio Neil Gaiman ilustrada por Yoshitaka Amano (sí, sí, el de los Final Fantasy), que tiene toda la pinta de ser un trabajo delicioso (ya caerá en mis garras, ya). Pero e [...]

    19. I was actually a little bit reluctant to read this second to last volume of Sandman – it seemed to me that it was somewhat out of place in the oeuvre, and only had somewhat of a loose tie to the original story arc as Gaiman and his artists are occasionally wont to do in the series. The fact that it was so outside of the time-frame of original publication, along with the strange suggestion of the orient on the cover (why?) sort of turned me off. I was very wrong – the story is a gorgeous folk [...]

    20. *Book source ~ LibraryFrom :THE SANDMAN: THE DREAM HUNTERS is a comics adaptation of Gaiman's original prose novella by the same name illustrated by Yoshitako Amano. This graphic novel was illustrated by the legendary P. Craig Russell. A humble young monk and a magical, shape-changing fox find themselves romantically drawn together. As their love blooms, the fox learns of a devilish plot by a group of demons and a Japanese emperor to steal the monk's life. With the aid of Morpheus, the fox must [...]

    21. Sandman is probably my favorite comic book series, and since I hadn't read this little collection before, I immediatly jumped on it when I saw it at our local library. Upon reading it to completion, I decided it was probably one of my favorites from within the series as well. Gaiman just has a way with words and myths, even if he is totally making it up as he goes along. Which is exactly what he did with The Dream Hunters.If you ever eat your way through Sandman, look this one up. You won't be d [...]

    22. This is a little different than I am used to from Gaiman, but the commentary really brought it home for me how brilliant this piece is. The art and Asian mythical style are so convincing that people still write Gaiman asking for the original source. Now that I know what he set out to achieve, and how he went about it, I can see what makes this such a special addition to any thorough Gaiman collection.

    23. Neil Gaiman expertly weaves characters from the Sandman series into a story that very closely resembles a traditional Japanese folklore tale. As usual, Craig Russell's art is beautiful. The thing that stops me from giving this a solid five stars is that the story isn't always believable. The interaction between the monk and the fox feels real and beautiful, but the wealthy Japanese lord's motivations felt contrived.

    24. The story of a Buddhist monk and the fox spirit who loved him. No, it's not furry erotica, and was originally claimed to be based on a Japanese folk tale that Gaiman later admitted he made up. Later he found there were some similarities to a collection of classical Chinese stories by Pu Songling he hadn't read yet. It is quite elegant and beautiful in its simplicity.

    25. The story here was magical, beautiful, and heartbreaking. You are pulled into to this world and feel as though, by some stroke of kindness, these lovers will survive and yet you are left without. That is not to say, however, that you are left wanting. The art of the graphic novel is raw and expressive. All together, it is beautiful. Everyone should give this story a read.

    26. I had not read the Sandman stories so I cannot compare this adaptation--for me it stands alone.Though I found the story sparse at times, I enjoyed it. The back matter is unusually dense, discusses the story behind the story.

    27. 3.5 stars.I really enjoyed this little, japanese-influenced fairy-tale by Neil Gaiman. For all that it was entirely made up by him, it felt really authentic to me (with my little experience in Japanese fairy-tales.), which I appreciated. Overall, a very nice addition to the series.
