APL Ruiz's resident authority on comics has called Watchmen "the Citizen Kane of graphic novels" and I agree it's a staggering achievement, but I now think The Sandman reaches farther and deeper.

A fascinating and epic addiction to the Sandman saga!

Features Dream's long lost and intriguing brother, Destruction!

Loved it! :) I love love love Delirium! All of the Endless are pretty amazing in their own ways, but Delirium is one of the funnest! It's always interesting getting to learn more about their story!

I was very impressed with the visuals in this one. Jill Thompson's drawings really bring the characters to life, and I appreciated the restraint on the horror elements. Delirium's realm, (Delirium's hair!) the word balloons, the almost monochromatic pages with Ishtar, starry skies . . . great stuff.

Volume 7 of the collected Sandman series tells the story of Dream and his sister Delirium on a quest to find a missing member of the 'Endless Family'. It is a more straightforward story which I enjoyed, but was not as fascinating as volumes 5 and 6. Delirium is a crazy goddess that provides a lot of laughs due to her childlike non-sequitar mannerisms. Readers will finally get to meet all the Endless in this volume. Good reading; highly recommended for mature readers.

If you haven't read Sandman and you like graphic novels, fantasy, goth, horror, or just love great story telling... you're missing out. Read it!
