Written by Neil Gaiman.
Illustrated by Mike Dringenberg, Malcolm Jones III, Chris Bachalo, Michael Zulli, and Steve Parkhouse.
Painted Cover by Dave McKean
Introduction by Clive Barker.
"Mr. Gaiman is one of those adventurous creators who sees no reason why his tales shouldn't embrace slapstick comedy, mystical musings, and the grimmest collection of serial killers this side of death row....If the sheer profusion of these inventions and the apt absurdity of some of the juxtapositions puts you in mind of one of your more heated dreams, then surely that's what Mr. Gaiman intends."
Clive Barker, author of Weaveworld and The Great and Secret Show, from his Introduction
"The Sandman is not a superhero...he is an observer, occasionally a catalyst, rarely the focus of the action. He rules the kingdom of dreams and his motives are not ours to understand. Neil Gaiman...is the best...[at] combining passion with gruesome horror [and] delicate characterization with exhaustive research." Lewis Shiner, Slam
"The Sandman is Neil Gaiman's own inventory of the books of hell, personally rewritten with no small measure of ambition or cockiness." Steve Erickson, L.A. Weekly
