Gaiman’s comic book magnum opus centers around the Dream, or Morpheus, one of the seven immortal beings, known as the Endless, who control various aspects of existence.

After his escape, Morpheus must retrieve the tools that power him and repair the dream broken by his absence. In the second volume, Morpheus must pursue runaway nightmares while dealing with a human who inadvertently threatens to break down the barriers between dreams, killing every human in the process.
These are two great introductory stories, but the whole drama of the endless family begins to develop into a full Volume 4: Seasons of the MistA story that will only be adapted if the Sandman gets renewed for season 2.
