The sandman was a series of comics (or is that a comic series?) that was penned by Neil Gaimen for seven years, roughly 1988 - 96. The Sandman Companion (as you might guess) is a guidebook of sorts to the comic. If you have read the sandman at all, be it one or all seventy-six issues, then this book is a must. It contains interviews with the man himself (Gaimen) with detailed examination of each story arc & issue. Buts its whole is greater that the sum of its parts as it gives us a glimpse into (and behind) the man & myth surrounding the how and why of the Sandman universe. Additionally you are treated to previously unpublished drawing, images & pictures. I just know that I will be reading this in every spare moment until its finished.
