is the final volume in the story of The Sandman
The King of Dreams is dead long live the King of Dreams. Now ancient gods, old friends, and enemies gather to pay tribute and to remember, in the strangest wake ever held. The echoes of the death reverberate: we see them touch a man who will not die, and a Chinese sage whose path into exile takes him through a desert of dreams. And, at the end of his life, William Shakespeare fufills his side of a very strange bargain.
Volume X of THE SANDMAN is printed in a new hardcover, reflecting the trade dress of the current library of SANDMAN trade paperbacks. Reprinting THE SANDMAN #70-75, this moving collection features the ascendance of Daniel, the new Lord of Dreams, after Morpheus's death.
Written by Neil Gaiman; art by Michael Zulli, Jon J Muth and Charles Vess; painted cover by Dave McKean
