For Wednesday we herd a passage from Neil Gaiman.

A word from Neil Gaiman on The Sandman:

“…two years later, we’re outselling “Superman” and we’re outselling “Batman” because they’re selling 80,000 or 60,000, and we’re now selling 120,000 because we actually picked up readers. By the end of “The Sandman,” it was the No. 1 comic, which is again a very odd sort of thing. How did we do it? It was all about the story. It was always about the story.”


Thursday we shared a short synopsis.

A magician/occultist attempts to capture Death to use him as a bargain in return for eternal life. Instead, she traps her younger brother Dream. After 70 years of imprisonment, Dream (also known as Morpheus) escapes and goes on a quest for his lost objects of power. This journey will take him through the gates of hell itself. It will also teach Dream an important lesson about relying on tools, and introduce us to Lucifer, John Constantine, and an all-powerful madman.
