Herein we get a bit more worldbuilding, seeing how Dream is taking back his world after decades of capture. For the most part, we deal with the fallout around a family of one of the women from Sandman 1 (the one who found herself pregnant), but there’s also a very well told story of a man granted immortality–on the condition that he checks up with Dream once every hundred years at the same old pub. Also a ‘Cereal’ convention (that took me longer than it should have). Of course.
It’s well written, beautifully (in the creepy sort of way at times) illustrated, and well worth the read. Onwards!
