Preludes and Nocturnes
is the first volume in the story of The Sandman
Morpheus, the King of Dreams, has been held prisoner for 75 years by a wealthy madman. The world has suffered in his absence. Regaining his freedom, Morpheus must restore his deteriorated realm, The Dreaming, and recover his power, much of which resides in three stolen tools: his pouch, helmet, and ruby.
Written by Neil Gaiman.
Illustrated by Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, and Malcolm Jones III.
Introduction by Karen Berger.
In stories reprinted from The Sandman #1-7, the Lord of Dreams is freed from decades-long imprisonment and seeks to reclaim his office in encounters with John Constantine, the Justice League of America, and more.
