NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman's transcendent series THE SANDMAN is often hailed as the definitive Vertigo title and one of the finest achievements in graphic storytelling. Gaiman created an unforgettable tale of the forces that existbeyond life and death by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales with his own distinct narrative vision. In THE KINDLY ONES, distraught by the kidnapping and presumed death of her son, and believing Morpheus to be responsible, Lyta Hallcalls the ancient wrath of the Furies down upon him. A former superheroine blames Morpheus for the death of her child and summons an ancient curse of vengeance against the Lord of Dream. The 'kindly ones' enter his realm and force a sacrifice that will change the Dreaming forever. Collects issues #57-69 and 'The Castle' story from VERTIGO JAM.
