Abstract
In my thesis, I examine the comic book series The Sandman by Neil Gaiman, in the context of modem myth building. I give a brief history of super hero comics and show the social dynamics that shape the genre. I illustrate the ways The Sandman uses past super heroes, historical and mythological figures in an intertextual interchange to create a mythological framework that accommodates and brings into accord earlier divergent mythic traditions. Through his narrative, Gaiman addresses traditionally marginalized people to demonstrate how people should treat ach other. I also show how Gaiman's work reinterprets and reinscribes traditional mythology into a new post-modem context, thereby bridging differing tradition into a new mythic paradigm that serves modern spiritual needs.
