Neil Gaiman "The Sandman Omnibus: Volume 1"
The Sandman is Neil Gaiman's universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming - a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who's ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus' realm - be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons. Upon his escape from an embarrassing captivity at the hands of a mere mortal, Morpheus finds himself at a crossroads, forced to deal with the enormous changes within both himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in a world that's drastically changed takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his ancient heirlooms, the back roads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself, to receive the dubious honor of picking the next Devil. But, he'll learn his greatest lessons at the hands of his own family, the Endless, who - like him - are walking embodiments of the most influential aspects...
