Synopsis from publisher:
Beyond the shores of night, there lies the kingdom of The Sandman… a vast, unmapped realm of dreams where you can find ancient myths and modern nightmares, as well as the landscape of a thousand fables and some very personal hells. Come take a tour of the Dreaming in this collection of three stories: Meet a runaway gargoyle who is much more than she appears; then take an unexpected detour in the woods in 1950 and find yourself awake in the strange world of the 1990s; and finish with an excursion to the House of Mystery, where a long-lost relative has just dropped by for dinner. This is the Dreaming, and here there be dragons, and gargoyles, and the answer to that eternal question: “Now, what could that bizarre dream have meant?”

The first collection of The Dreaming comic book series. Issues #1 to #3 were written by Terry LaBan and illustrated by Peter Snejbjerg. Issues #4 to #7 were written by Peter Hogan and illustrated by Steve Parkhouse. Dick Giordano provides inks for issue #7. Issue #8 was written by Alisa Kwitney and illustrated by Michael Zulli. The cover was created by Dave McKean and was originally used as the cover to issue #1.
