This is my absolute favorite Sandman story arc. Dream is very human in this storyline. The story begins with him moping spectacularly, having been dumped by his latest lover: rain pours down as he stands dramatically on his balcony, while his servants and assistants discuss the best ways to stay out of his way until he's worked out his bad mood. A visit from Dream's sister, Delerium, serves to partially snap Dream out of his funk, and he joins her on a quest to find their prodigal brother, Destruction. Even this already complex task is going to be more complicated than anyone realizes, however, and the outcome will cement Dream's destruction.
