Loved this. I particularly liked A Dream of a Thousand Cats and a Midsummer Nights dream. So fanciful.

It's a collection of four stories that have very little to do with the Sandman. They're boring and felt like those filler episodes that are popular in anime. Luckily, this volume is short. 2 stars.

These semi-standalone stories felt like a breath of fresh foreign air in familiar native lands. Neil Gaiman's writing is undeniably a killer to read for.

A slight volume at only four issues, this still has some great stuff in it. "A Dream of A Thousand Cats" is sad and adorable and funny, and Colleen Doran's art for "Fa├žade" is great and you gotta love a Death story. The real banger here though is "A Midsummer Night's Dream" which brings together Dream, one of my favorite Shakespeare plays, and the amazing art of Charles Vess. You know you're in for a treat whenever Gaiman and Vess are collaborating.
