The Sandman, Vol. 3: Dream Country

by

The third volume of the Sandman collection is a series of four short comic book stories. In each of these otherwise unrelated stories, Morpheus serves only as a minor character. Here we meet the mother of Morpheus's son, find out what cats dream about, and discover the true origin behind Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream. The latter won a World Fantasy Award for best short story, the first time a comic book was given that honor. collecting The Sandman #17–20

    An intermezzo between two longer story arcs, composed of four stand-alone issues. Part of the appeal for me is in the quality of work from the guest artists, Charles Vess and Kelley Jones in particula...

    The third volume of The Sandman series is a bit of a mixed bag, since the individual stories, although all entertaining, vary in quality. And yet it also contains what may be the greatest Sandman tale...

    3.0 stars. A good collection of four unconnected solo stories. I did not like this volume as much as Volumes 1 and 2 but it is still worth reading. My favorite story is probably "A Midsummer Night's D...

    Every time I read a volume of Sandman, I desperately hope I'll love it. Then I get a sinking feeling as I read and find myself bored and unimpressed, and I start to fear that someone is going to show ...
