NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series THE 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 existbeyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision. In THE KINDLY ONES, distraught by the kidnapping and presumed death of her son, and believing Morpheus to be responsible, Lyta Hallcalls the ancient wrath of the Furies down upon him. A former superheroine blames Morpheus for the death of her child and summons an ancient curse of vengeance against the Lord of Dream. The 'kindly ones' enter his realm and force a sacrifice that will change the Dreaming forever. Collects issues #57-69 and 'The Castle' story from VERTIGO JAM.

I didn't realize that it would hurt this bad at the end of this book.

But it did.

APL Ruiz's resident authority on comics has called Watchmen "the Citizen Kane of graphic novels" and I agree it's a staggering achievement, but I now think The Sandman reaches farther and deeper.

The final volume of Sandman! An interesting mix of mythology, legend, and history. Starring all the rich and varied characters from past volumes!

. . . Jack does the conversation thing that the English do so well, where they can talk forever and never tell you a thing.

I would feel infinitely more comfortable in your presence if you would agree to treat gravity as a law, rather than one of a number of suggested options.
