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.
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.
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.”
The quest for Morpheus’ items continues in “Dream A Little Dream of Me.” Personally, I kept expecting to hear that song, but I don’t believe we ever did.
I have a very uneven relationship with superhero parodies. I’m a big hero fan, and a lot of them really fall flat with me, taking obvious routes to making stupid jokes that I’ve heard countless times before. However, I have a great deal of faith in Patton Oswalt.
The final season of Agents of SHIELD has begun, with the team (well, most of them. Where’s Fitz??!!) tossed back to 1931 to prevent the Chronicoms from retroactively wiping them out.
Things just keep getting stranger for the Agents of SHIELD in “Hot Potato Soup.” Then again, things always get strange when the Agents Koenig are involved. Patton Oswalt does a great job as usual, while the rest of the team has to try and keep up with the problems of far too many people…
