''TheSandman'' is a ComicBook series (later collected in a series of graphic novels) by Creator/NeilGaiman, chronicling the story of the King of Dreams and his family of fantastic AnthropomorphicPersonification[=s=] of cosmic powers. Described as "A story about stories," ''The Sandman'' was a comic series that could tell any tale, in any time period, in any style or setting. Historical figures were common, as were allusions and homages to many classic works such as the ''Literature/ArabianNights'' and the plays of Creator/WilliamShakespeare. The series lasted for 75 issues, from January, 1989 to March, 1996. A {{prequel}} mini-series, ''ComicBook/TheSandmanOverture'', was released in 2013, the original series' 25th anniversary and was written by Gaiman with art by J H Williams III.

* AllAreEqualInDeath: Death is a rather benevolent version of this trope. She never misses the opportunity to say that everybody dies at the end, but for the same reason and since she knows everything about everyone, she never hates anyone, they are all the same to her but because she knows them all.
