DC All Access - Revisiting The Sandman

Anyone who believes that dreams are easily forgotten clearly hasn't read The Sandman, Neil Gaiman's exemplary modern fantasy that began in 1988 and went on to become one of the most acclaimed comics of the 1990s. Still highly readable, the series helped establish Vertigo as an imprint for sophisticated and cutting-edge comics while cementing Neil Gaiman as one of the greatest authors of the modern age. In this DC All Access comics clip, we look back at the series, breaking down the beloved storyline from the earliest volume to the most recent.

5.2 Reasons We're Ready to Re-Enter the World of Sandman

Hello, and readers! Today’s edition of “5.2 Reasons” is so huge that we’re publishing it on both websites. Why? Well, in case you didn’t know, we’re currently in the midst of celebrating The Sandman on with a month-long promotion called “25 Days of Sandman,” and frankly, we wanted in on that bad boy.

Meet the Endless

We’re kicking off our 25 Days of Sandman with The Endless.

They’ll be appearing in Neil Gaiman’s highly anticipated new bi-monthly series THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, so let’s get to know them!

The Endless are immortal depictions of seven abstract emotions and ideas, each has his/her own realm and responsibilities. They behave as siblings and wear a variety of appearances within the pages of THE SANDMAN.

Absolute Death

For all you fans of DEATH and, of course, Neil Gaiman, THE ABSOLUTE edition will be published this October! It looks amazing and includes anything and everything DEATH, including an Introduction by Amanda Palmer, solo artist of Dresden Dolls fame, and a Gallery of DEATH which includes numerous artist renditions of the delightfully goth fan-favorite among other extras. Catch a glimpse of the gallery here: By Jeff Smith (color by Daniel Vozzo)
