Written by Neil Gaiman; Art by Michael Zulli, Jon J. Muth, and Charles Vess A groundbreaking and award-winning epic that masterfully creates a modern myth of dark fantasy, the Sandman series tells the tale of Morpheus, the King of Dreams. As a being of infinite power, Morpheus has ruled over the realm of the dreaming since the beginning of time. But now after a tragic fall, Morpheus is no more. In the touching and final chapter of this fantastical legend, friends, siblings, enemies and lovers gather to mourn and honor the fallen Lord. Realistically depicting the feelings of loss and despair associated with death, THE SANDMAN: THE WAKE is an emotional tale of remembrance and rebirth.

The only Neil Gaiman stuff I'd read before was American Gods but I will definitely add him to my favourite authors list on what I've read so ...
My journey with Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series can be compared with a departure of a long lost friend. That it went by too fast, and it's too soon to end.
