The third volume of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, Dream Country, blends dream-like, imaginative universes with the sombre perspective of a storyteller who gives them shape. Our paper argues that, although at first glance the four stories seem disconnected, there are underlying threads linking them. Whether it is the poet who frequently rapes his captured muse, or the Siamese cat who preaches of an alternate reality – in each of the tales, reality is seen as an aberration that dream reshapes (although often imperfectly) into some semblance of order. This reshaping is made possible due to an interplay between text and art that is facilitated by the comic book medium.
