This entry in the series was different from the others in that the entire volume was the continuation of one story-the search for the missing member of the Endless-Destruction. We also get to see the final story of Orpheus, Dream's (Morpheus') son. It was a very sad note to end on, or was it? I fe...

Perhaps the best so far, this is the family drama volume. Delirium is sheer visual pleasure and a contrast to the always somber Morpheus. More back story on Morpheus and Orpheus; much loss and sadness, well-portrayed and emotionally deep.

When Delirium decided to find The Endless's long-lost brother, Destruction, she decided to ask her elder brother and sisters for help. I like Dream and Delirium energy and casual chat. It is so hilarious when Delirium acts like a bratty, whiny and noisy little sister and Dream acts like a mature old...

This one is a family road-trip story. In many ways, that makes it the most accessible story - at least for me, what with a younger sister and all. It also contains one of the most beautiful panels in my personal history of comics and it, again, takes the level of intellectual discourse EVEN HIGHER...

Absolutely fantastic storytelling by Neil Gaiman once again, and probably one of my favorite installments so far. I love the interactions Delirium has with her family, and how Morpheus character progresses. There's not a whole lot to say otherwise since I'm a fan of this series, and if you haven't r...

Re-read for Mark Reads, 2012: This, the turning point of the series, remains an absolutely stunning volume.

NO doubt there is a better way to describe The Sandman than as "the greatest framing story ever," but I can't think of one. I liked getting to spend a little time with Delirium, and Destruction, I like the idea of extremely long-lived beings hanging around, and I loved Thompson's art.Library copy.
