New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision.

During Morpheus's incarceration, three dreams escaped the Dreaming and are now loose in the waking world. At the same time, a young woman named Rose Walker is searching for her little brother. As their stories converge, a vortex is discovered that could destroy all dreamers, and the world itself. Features an introduction by Clive Barker.
This volume includes issues 9-16 of the original series and features completely new coloring, approved by the author.

Gaiman's dramatic writing continues to impress. I liked how this volume had a much stronger central story arc compared to the first book.

Very good book. Combines to form a greater whole with the first one. I am looking forward to completing the rest of the series.

The second book in this series is just as good as the first one.

It is a creepy book filled with creepy and sad stories. But still so very, very good

Harder to follow than its predecessor, but its story was original and intriguing. At times it felt like there were too many perspectives going on at once.

I thought this one was just ok. While Morpheus continues to prove that he's super freakin' awesome, too many random events kinda distract from the story. =/ Though I really liked the different kinds of characters Gaiman created and added to the story, he's got such a great imagination! I also liked that he linked the characters' stories instead of introducing a whole new cast and crew. It makes it easier to remember characters and connect pieces of the story.

If I had to choose just one volume of Sandman comics to epitomize the series, this is the one. Smart and dark and brilliant and funny and sad and everything else you could want Neil Gaiman to be.

Volume two of the Sandman series is where things start to get interesting. One thing I've noticed is that many issues have a different artist so the layouts often look varied. The writer Neil Gaiman has introduced a lot of off-beat characters and ideas. The series is an original and can recommend it to mature readers.
