Inspiration Behind THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE

Morpheus’ first appearance in THE SANDMAN #1 was that of an exhausted man, caught in a magical circle. The year was 1916. In trying to capture Death, Roderick Burgess performed a ritual and chanted in the darkness “Coin and Song, Knife and Stick… Claw and Name, Blood and Feather,” capturing none other than: The Dream King. 

But how did Morpheus - one of the most powerful of The Endless - come to be so weak, so broken, that he succumbed to a spell and was held captive for 70 years?
