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 in der Englischen Literatur

Ein historischer Längsschnitt im Kontext von John Miltons Paradise Lost

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.

Transmedial Narratology and Contemporary Media Culture

It has become something of a clich� within the field of narratology to assert the commercial, aesthetic, and sociocultural relevance of narrative representations, but the fact remains that narratives are everywhere. Whenever we read a novel or a comic, watch a film or an episode of our favorite television series, or play the latest video game, we are likely to engage with narrative media. Similarly, the intermedial adaptations and transmedial entertainment franchises that have become increasingly visible during the past few decades are, at their core, narrative forms. Since a significant part of contemporary media culture is defined by the narratives we tell each other via various media, the media studies discipline needs a genuinely transmedial narratology. Transmedial Narratology and Contemporary Media Culture focuses on the intersubjective construction of storyworlds as well as on prototypical forms of narratorial and subjective representation. It provides not only a method for the analysis of salient transmedial strategies of narrative representation in contemporary films, comics, and video games but also a theoretical frame within which medium-specific approaches from literary and film narratology, from comics studies and game studies, and from various other strands of media and cultural studies may be employed to further our understanding of narratives across media.
