This was one of the strangest, saddest, most intense, and adult-oriented comics I've ever read, all at once. The titular character is shown only sparingly, but he has an important role to play; one of his siblings also makes a surprise appearance. Among the main characters in this volume are a lesbian couple and a transsexual woman, so young readers and the exceedingly pious should proceed with caution.

This volume felt sadder than I was ready for, but I do like the idea of worlds existing inside each and every one of us.

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.

Not as good as some of the volumes, but still recommend it for all Sandman fans! :)

I really liked the Colleen Doran artwork, especially the drawing down the moon bit.

While not my favorite in this series, it is a fabulous series. And like the first four volumes I find myself continuing to think and dream about it even days after I finished it.
