The Sandman: Season of Mists by Neil Gaiman

Sandman: Season of Mists
In this volume (#4) of the Sandman saga, Dream’s associates convince him that he may have been hasty condemning the woman who loved him to 10,000 years in hell. Gaiman must really want the reader to understand that the Endless are not like us. Lucifer has had a bone to pick with Dream from early on in the series and this story builds to a large scale fight. Somewhat surprisingly Gaiman subverts all this and the latter half of the book turns into more of a lesson in politics with a literal Deus Ex Machina. The ending fits the mood and themes of the story, but it still feels like a bit of a cheat. nonetheless this is a great volume in the series and well worth the read. [Issues #21-28]
