Annotated Sandman Vol. 1
Meet the Endless, a family of immortals that govern all aspects of life and death throughout the universe. However, one of their own lays captured—Dream, the Lord of Sleep. As Dream makes his escape and returns to his duties after 70 years of imprisonment, he encounters countless characters from myth, legend and comics, from Lucifer himself to the tragic Greek hero Orpheus to the HELLBLAZER John Constantine. New York Times best-selling 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 fairytales with his own distinct narrative vision.
