Sandman: The Doll’s House

The Sandman has a very complicated history. While the title was part of the Vertigo line, it was still part of the wider DC Universe, and some heroes and villains came in and out of the book. They’ve made the decision to not bring in any superhero characters, so some slightly different versions of some of these characters appear in the series.

Sandman: 24/7

Otherwise known as “The Diner story” when it’s talked about, the episode is titled “24/7.” This is the most disturbing episode so far, and if memory serves, the worst we’re likely to see this season. This is going to be a very short review, because this is mostly high drama and I try to avoid spoilers.

Sandman: A Hope in Hell

One of my favorite issues throughout the several years long run was early on, when Morpheus went to hell to reclaim what was his. That, somewhat adapted, is what we see in “A Hope in Hell.”

Sandman: Sleep of the Just

I’ve been reading comics most of my life, and usually stick with the superhero themed ones, but when Sandman #1 came out, I was hooked. I read each issue, talked about them with a good friend who generally doesn’t read comics at all but enjoyed these, and was constantly surprised and enthralled with where the stories went.
