This is great storytelling. Boring but the best kind of boring

The endless are brought to life and given such rich character by everybody who put work into this. I can't believe I didn't get into this series when it first came out. I really enjoyed the first two volumes and look forward to the remaining books. This is so worth reading.

If you want to know why cats no loger rule the Earth, where a Muse is now, where Shakespeare got his ideas, how helpful Death can be, and why Tori Amos mentions Neil in her songs, read this -- and all the other Sandman books.

*Book source ~ Library From Goodreads: The third book of the Sandman collection, DREAM COUNTRY continues the fantastical mythology of Morpheus, the King of Dreams. In these centuries-spanning tales, the powerful entity known as the Sandman interacts with a diverse assortment of humans, fairies, heroes, and animals as he walks the mortal plane. Including an amazing encounter with William Shakespeare and an interesting take on the origin and first performance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," this book depicts the dreaming world of cats, the tragic life of forgotten super-heroes and the folly of imprisoning and torturing a former lover of the King of Dreams. I actually didn’t like this one as much as the other two volumes I’ve read, yet I still give it a 4 for creativity, weirdness and artwork. I like Calliope’s story the best and A Midsummer Night’s Dream the least because it doesn’t make any sense to me and I’m really not a fan of Shakespeare. I only flipped through the script for Calliope because while it was interesting, it wasn’t so interesting I wanted to take the time to read it all. In this volume: Calliope ~ Poor Calliope A Dream of a Thousand Cats ~ Very bizzare A Midsummer Night’s Dream ~ Shakespeare, Neil Gaiman-style Façade ~ Weird and a bit disturbing Script for Calliope ~ behind the stage of how this comic was written and drawn
