The Sandman, Vol. 2: The Doll's House

The Sandman, Vol. 2: The Doll's House - Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman, Malcolm Jones III, Steve Parkhouse, Todd Klein, Chris Bachalo, Mike Dringenberg, Michael Zulli First issue kicks off with Dream falling in love with a mortal queen named Nada; and she also falls in love with him. Dream is one of the Endless and Nada knows that they can never be together and she refuses to marry him, Dream sentences Nada to hell and her kingdom is ruined. This is one of several stories within the main story, each taking you into Dreams head a little at a time.

The main story thread starts in the second issue with a girl Rose Walker, who is the granddaughter of Unity Kincaid, one of the unfortunates who went to sleep on Dreams imprisonment only waking when he escaped. Rose is a vortex, someone who can cause great damage to the Dreaming process and it is Dreams duty to destroy these one in a generation harbingers of irreparable damage.

Enjoyed this second volume even more than the first and the Collectors episode with the Corinthian and the convention of serial killers was pure genius, walking round talking openly about there hobby or even profession as if it were completely normal.
Twisted, disturbing it may be but you simply can't stop reading and Gaiman has the ability to create things that will stay with you forever.
