House of Whispers Vol. 2: Ananse



The pandemic is spreading, and Erzulie is calling upon all her distant contacts to aid her in stopping Shakpana and his infection.

The souls trapped in the Dreaming are restless, seeking any help they can attain to escape from their "predeceased" state. Erzulie calls upon the spider-god of stories, Anansi, to assist her in unraveling the truth behind her own history. But can Anansi be trusted with any truths he finds?

Written by Nalo Hopkinson, award-winning author of Brown Girl in the Ring and Midnight Robber, and Dominike "DOMO" Stanton, artist of the acclaimed Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.

The Sandman Universe is a new series of books curated by Neil Gaiman for DC Vertigo. Conjuring epic storytelling and immersing readers in 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.

Collects House of Whispers #7-12.
