This audiobook contains audio interpretations of issues 1-20 (Volumes 1-3) of the Sandman comic.

I recently read the Sandman comics and quite enjoyed them. I decided to give this full cast audio version of the story a try and I am glad I did. I really loved this audiobook collection. The narration of this book was amazing and really helped sell the story. I actually liked a few of these stories more in this audiobook than when I read the comics. 

The choice of James McAvoy as Morpheus was a perfect choice in my opinion. He really sold Morpheus and his attitude towards things. I really enjoyed Neil Gaiman’s narration of the stories as well. 

Overall, this was an amazing audio production of a great comic series. I highly recommend this audiobook if you are a fan of the Sandman or if you enjoy fantasy horror stories.
