Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The third book of the Sandman collection is a series of four short comic book stories. In each of these otherwise unrelated stories, Morpheus serves only as a minor character. Here we meet the mother of Morpheus's son, find out what cats dream about, and discover the true origin behind Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream. The latter won a World Fantasy Award for best short story, the first time a comic book was given that honor.

This volume includes issues 17-20 of the original series and features completely new coloring, approved by the author, of issues 17 and 18.

   Gots'ta love me some
The art PERFECTLY fits the story, the story fits perfectly the nightmare! Thank you again!
   This is very deep but so good 🤩
I love writing and story telling. My favorite issues are both A Dream of a thousand cats and Façade. The one thing I do not like is that I really hate the characters Richard Madoc and Erasmus Fry. I resent Calliope for what they did, but that is kind of the point of the story. I give this volume 5 out of 5 because I really love this graphic novel.
   Maybe I’m not a comics guy
I love Neil Gaiman's work. But the comics are now a little childish for me. I would have liked it better some years ago. In every issue there is still a story that I like more than the others.
   A Classic
I re-read something every couple of years.
   Amazing and abstract
Loved Neil's take on the Midsummer Nights Dream. As a first time reader, I am thoroughly enjoying the series so far. It surpassed my expectations and even met them at points. Can 't wait to get my hands on another volume,
   One offs
However, Colleen Doran's art adds a consistency to Sandman, I enjoy it.
   The Sandman series is remarkable
Dream Country The four offerings in this book are each amazing in their own way. My favorite was the first, Calliope, it is about a muse being held captive and abused horribly by writers. At the beginning of the story she gives to a young writer who suffers from a writer's block. Thankfully Morpheus comes back one of the Endless. The second story really got to me, A Dream of a Thousand Cats, tells how reality was once changed and can be changed back. A Midsummer's night dream is about Shakespeare's play being performed in front of the actual characters in the play. Dream is of course also there. The last story is called the Facade - legend and tells of a woman who has been changed by the Egyptian God Ra and her struggles to survive. I am enjoying making my way through this Sandman series and can 't wait to read the next.
   I started with this Volume
I heard that the first volume by Sandman was relatively slow, so I started with this volume and was extremely glad that I did. Neil Gaiman carries the genre to heights not yet seen. So good!
