Dream Country (The Sandman #3)

A bit of an odd one. Despite the series being named for Dream, herein we have a handful of mostly disconnected stories with Dream as only a minor character. They’re still absolutely fascinating and do give us a much deeper look at the world (both the analogue to our own world and the Dream). The second is especially funny, Dream as a cat. Sure. :D

Well worth the read.

Spoilers and snaps:

Sandman-3-01

A former lover, caught up in much the same situation as Dream was not that long ago. Man humanity can be terrible at times.

Sandman-3-02

The world of cats. Because of course.

Sandman-3-03

Dream as a cat. :D I love it.

Sandman-3-04

And here we have Shakespeare and his company giving a play about the fae … to the fae. I always love reading stories about the fae and this is a fun take on the whole thing. Especially with some of the fae taking on their own roles.

Sandman-3-05

And then finally, Death. I wonder if she has a series her own or is always a secondary character. Mixed in, we have a weird bit of Egyptian mythology surviving to the present day. A neat story.
