I liked these four stand alone stories before what I imagine will be the next story arc in the series. Enjoying them. Midsummer was very ambitious! ( )

The third installment in the Sandman series is a disappointment, much shorter than the first two volumes, and uninspired. It’s as if Gaiman was experiencing the writer’s block the character in his first story has. That character unblocks himself by acquiring the ageless Calliope, one of the Muses, and I was not wild about the casualness with which Gaiman describes him raping her on their first night. The second story goes a long way to use the line at the end about it not being possible to get a thousand cats to agree to anything. The third story has faeries visiting Shakespeare and company and having them put on a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is not all that original. The lone highlight was the character ‘Death’ in the last story, who, far from the traditional grim reaper, is a youthful looking woman who does her job in a friendly and reasonable way. Overall not horrible, but this one could have been skipped. ( )

This was a nice break from the previous two. By that I mean that I didn't have to look at a lurid illustration of an eyeball getting eaten. Somehow, despite this lack of gruesome, I still felt moved by and invested in the stories. Amazing. ( )

I love Neil Gaiman, and I love these graphic novels.

From this one, I particularly liked "Dream of a Thousand Cats" - love love love. :) ( )

A great set of stand alone stories between stories. Gaiman's writing shows it's strength and the artist' interpretations are wonderful. ( )

May, 1986. So what is it? It smells quite disgusting.

The third book of the Sandman collection is a series of four short comic book stories. In each of these otherwise unrelated stories, Morpheus serves only as a minor character. Here we meet the mother of Morpheus's son, find out what cats dream about, and discover the true origin behind Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream.… (more)
