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.
