The story is absolutely fantastic, though the art in this rereleased version is a total let down. The original version of this graphic novel was illustrated by the acclaimed Japanese artist Yoshitako Amano. His art suited this story much, much better as the story is based on a Japanese folktale. The new artist (though acclaimed in his own right), P. Craig Russell, absolutely does not do justice to the story being told and it's a shame the publisher and Gaiman felt the need to rerelease this with a different artist. If you get a chance check out the original version of this! Two stars because this change was unnecessary and ruined the original feel of this graphic novel.

Not what I was expecting, but very beautiful.

Elegant, and ethereal in both writing and illustrations; I cannot think of a better pair to so beautifully represent the world of dreams. This version of The Sandman is based on an old Japanese tale.

Beautiful illustrations by Amano and love Gaiman's storytelling of an old Japanese folklore. Presents a tale involving agape love and karma.
