This chapter explores how liminality and subliminality interweave in Gaiman's seminal work, The Sandman, infusing the text with fantastic opportunity and subversive potential. The series presents an overlap between the dreaming and waking worlds, dissipating clear distinctions between reality and fantasy. However, when there is an overlap between the dreaming and the waking worlds, the border is dissolved and humans too become liminal figures who navigate both worlds. The infinite possibilities that emerge when concrete and fantastic worlds collide make the series evocative of the sublime. Gaiman and his illustrators use liminality and the sublime throughout the series.
