Sandman

 SANF   (DC, 1989-1996)

™ and ©1989 Neil Gaiman

His name is Morpheus, sometimes known by mortals as the Sandman. He is lord of the mystical plane known as the Dreaming, and a member of the Endless, a race which includes Delirium, War…and his older sister Death.

But this series is not so much about him as it is about dreams—dreams, fantasies and fairy tales. The stories are from contemporary life with a twist of fantasy added, or alternately old folk tales reworked for a modern audience. Created by noted science-fiction/fantasy writer Neil Gaiman (Miracleman, Death: The High Cost of Living), Sandman is a brilliant, charming, and sometimes profound series.
