From #1 New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman!
In The Sandman Vol. 5: A Game of You 30th Anniversary Edition, the imagined landscapes of childhood are transformed into the battleground for a deadly contest of wills. As cracks appear in the wall that separates the waking world from the Dreaming, a group of young New Yorkers are drawn inexorably through the gaps into a long-forgotten corner of the Dream King's realm--a setting that is both eerily familiar and disturbingly malignant.
One of the most popular and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time, Neil Gaiman's award-winning masterpiece The Sandman set the standard for mature, lyrical fantasy in the modern comics era. Illustrated by critically acclaimed artists, the series is a rich blend of modern and ancient mythology in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven. Collects The Sandman #32-37.
