A New York Times Bestseller!

The Sandman is the universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming--a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who's ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus' realm--be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons.

Upon his escape from an embarrassing captivity at the hands of a mere mortal, Morpheus finds himself at a crossroads, forced to deal with the enormous changes within both himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in a world that's drastically changed takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his old heirlooms, the back roads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself--to receive the dubious honor of picking the next Devil. But he'll learn his greatest lessons at the hands of his own family, the Endless, who--like him--are walking embodiments of the most influential aspects of existence.

This massive hardcover tome, over 1000 pages, collects the first 37 issues of Neil Gaiman's groundbreaking series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best DC/VERTIGO Ominbus from a production standpoint, We all know Sandman... We all know DCs sometimes crappy, sometimes ok Omnibus production. The bad...The New Teen Titans Omnibus Vol. 1(gutter loss & glue binding only) & The Flash Omnibus by Geoff Johns Vol. 3(gutter loss & misplaced pages) The good..The New Teen Titans Omnibus Vol. 2 & The Invisibles Omnibus( glue & sewn, little gutter loss ). This Sandman is something we have not seen. 1. it is a series second to none in comic hisotry. 2. DC did the right thing and made this book standout above all other omnibuses DC or Marvel. I assume that is the reason for the $150 retail price point. This book is sturdy with its combu sewn and glued binding. The pages are dipped in black to fir the Sandman profile. The cover is a nice faux leather with inlayed script and images, and the cover binding is reinforced with another layer of faux leather. All in all a very impressive product. I was also pleasantly surprised with how light this book is. Most 1000 page omnibus ie. Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus - Volume 1 feels fragile compared to this. Of course that shold be the case when a book retails for $50 more. I doubt very seriously that DC is changing their omnibus production as a whole, but at least this volume was given the treatment it deserves. BTW. There are no extras. Just comics, covers, and bios
