    The Sandman Companion by Hy Bender (Jannes)
    Jannes: More of an insider perspective on both the creation and the themes od the comics - sort of like a director's commentary track. Highly recommended.

    Neil Gaiman's The Sandman and Joseph Campbell: In Search of the Modern Myth by Stephen Rauch (Jannes)
    Jannes: Academic treatment of the Sandman comics. Worthwhile for the enthusiast, at the very least.

A selection of academic papers concerned primarily with Gaiman's 'Sandman.' If you've read the comics, some of this is a bit tedious: every paper has lots of expository material you already know.

A few of the papers are worthwhile; some tell you nothing you don't know; and a couple are annoyingly obtuse, imposing an unsupportable misreading. But this is typical for any collection of such papers.

The editor should have advised his contributors that the one name by which the story's protagonist is never called is: 'Sandman.' It's surprisingly irritating to see that name used where 'Morpheus' is customary. The editor should also do the kind thing and delete or fix B. Keith Murphy's factually incorrect references to Watchmen, which he has obviously never read.
