The #1 New York Times Best-Selling Author
One of the most popular and critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time, Neil Gaiman's award-winning masterpiece The Sandman set the standard for mature, lyrical fantasy in the modern comics era. Illustrated by an exemplary selection of the medium's most gifted artists, the series is a rich blend of modern and ancient mythology in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.
In Worlds' End, wayfarers from throughout time, myth and imagination seek shelter from the fury of a reality storm in the welcoming halls of a mysterious inn. As they wait out the tempest raging around them, the travelers share stories of the places they have been, the things they have seen...and those that they have dreamed.
Collects The Sandman #51-56.
