The Shaper of Forms — The Procreant Urge of the Dream Country


As part of Comics Bulletin's retrospective on Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN series, Keith Silva, Taylor Lilley, and I got to take on the four one-offs that comprise the volume referred to as DREAM COUNTRY.


Story is serious business. The Monomyth persists throughout human culture because it expresses basic human moxie. The journey makes the narrative, but what is discovered at the destination separates us from the chittering beasts circling the campfire at midnight as we sleep swaddled in our flimsy synthetic tents. What new lands are unearthed there? What new vista upon which to plant our flag?
We live on in a dream country.
