The Sandman is a widely acclaimed and awarded series and undoubtebly the most famous work by Neil Gaiman. The series tells stories connected to Sandman, one of the Endless, the ruler of the kingdom of dreams. The Endless are anthropomorphic personifications, like Death and Dream. Were Sandman merely a clever story of clever characters it might have managed to gather the following and adoration it has, but it wouldn't still be regarded as the criterion on which all other comics works are compared to.
Originally published in single magazine form #9-16, The Doll's House follows the story of Rose Walker, whose journey to meet her long-lost grandmother slowly gets entangled with Dream's efforts to repair his kingdom, searching for dreams and nightmares wandering on Earth.
