    So I grabbed this one, somehow thinking it was the first one.I didn’t realize until after ‘d read it that it was volume two. I just assumed my initial difficulty getting a handle on the story was due to… well… Alan Moore. Anyway I loved every second of it! Creepy, perverse, beautiful and enlightening! I kind of gathered the impression that Neil Gaiman drew most of his influence for the Sandman, or at least a lot of it, from Swamp Thing. There are some stylistic similarities, and the role of dream and story as immaterial reality that was the essence of the Sandman is explored to some extent in this volume. Also Alan Moore seems to have used Cane and Able as characters before Gaiman stole them to live in his Dreaming! SO that was interesting. Well it was a hell of a red and I’m bummed now because Volume One seems to be lost…
