NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision. SEASON OF MISTS is Volume Four of New York Times' best-selling author Neil Gaiman's acclaimed creation. Ten thousand years after banishing to Hell a woman who scorned him, Morpheus, the King of Dreams, has decided to free his former lover. But when the Sandman arrives in the realm of eternal damnation, Lucifer, the first fallen angel, notifies him that he is closing down Hell and he wants Morpheus to have the keys. Now in charge of the gates of Hell, the King of Dreams is bombarded with requests for possession of the empty kingdom by Norse gods, homeless demons, Egyptian deities, Faerie ambassadors, the lords of Chaos and Order, and Japanese divinities. Realizing too late that Lucifer's gift was a veiled curse, Morpheus is forced to make a decision that will affect every plane of existence as well as the universal balance of power. With updated coloring, SEASON OF MISTS collects issues #21-28.

Das Satanssturzmotiv gehört zu den fruchtbarsten biblischen Motiven in der Englischen Literatur. Auf der theoretischen Basis etablierter und aktueller Ansätze zur Motivforschung und Intertextualität untersucht Eva Oppermann es in der auf Jesaja 14,12-15 zurückgehenden Version in zehn Transformationen, beginnend mit der Caedmon-Genesis im 10. Jh bis zu Pullmans Dark Materials (1997–2000). Neben der sogenannten ‚Jesajaparallele‘ nimmt in der Untersuchung John Miltons Paradise Lost (1667/74) eine zentrale Position als diejenige Version ein, in der der gesamte Stoffkomplex von Satanssturz und Sündenfall theologisch und psychologisch am ausführlichsten entwickelt wurde. Durch Einbeziehung der Werke von William Blake und Percy B. Shelley überschreitet die Untersuchung die Grenzen der narrativen Gattungen und bezieht lyrische und dramatische Texte mit ein. Einen sprachübergreifenden Aspekt gewinnt die Forschung auf Grund der Untersuchungen zu den Italienischen und Niederländischen Barockdramen, insbesondere zu Joost van den Vondels Lucifer (1554); dem einzigen Barockdrama zum Satanssturz. Kulturübergreifend wird die Studie durch die Einbeziehung von Rushdies Satanic Verses (1987) als einer islamgeprägten Transformation des Satanssturzmotivs. Durch die exemplarische Auswahl der untersuchten Werke gelingt der Untersuchung größere Tiefe als in entsprechenden Überblicksstudien, ohne dabei allerdings ihre Ganzheitlichkeit einzubüßen.
