One of four books expanding Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed Sandman Universe. Timothy Hunter may be destined to become the most powerful magician in the universe, but he’s still a London teenager, and having magical abilities is about to turn his world upside down!
While Tim’s trying to study and attract the cutest girl in his class, there are cultists who want to kill him, believing his magical powers will eventually corrupt him, turning him into a merciless mage that will bring upon the end of magic forever! But when a mysterious new substitute teacher for his school called Dr. Rose wants to mentor and educate him in the magical arts so that he can discover the secrets behind the Books of Magic, Tim believes he has the tools to find his missing mother. Is this sudden guidance too good to be true, and what connection–if any–does Rose have to the disappearance of Tim’s teacher Mr. Brisby?
The Sandman Universe is a new series of books curated by Neil Gaiman for DC Vertigo. Conjuring epic storytelling and immersing readers into the evolving world of the Dreaming, The Sandman Universe begins anew with four new ongoing series, existing in a shared universe, building upon Gaiman’s New York Times best-selling series that lyrically weaved together stories of dreams and magic.
From acclaimed author Kat Howard (Roses and Rot, An Unkindness of Magicians) and art from Tom Fowler (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Hulk: Season One, Rick and Morty) Books of Magic picks up right where Neil Gaiman left off in 1991!
