Most Helpful Customer Reviews
While I've been lukewarm about the Sandman series in general, Dream Hunters is an improvement over the main body of the series, primarily because of P. Craig Russell's artwork, which is always top-notch. In fact, the only issue of the main Sandman series that stood out for me was #50, "Ramadan", the success of which was also attributable to Craig Russell's contributions. If you're a diehard Sandman fan, I'm sure you won't want to miss out on Dream Hunters, and if the Sandman series hasn't been your cup of tea up until now, this volume might well be the one that will work for you.
