Made famous by Neil Gaiman, the Sandman is one of the more strange characters in DC’s lineup. Read his essential stories.
What’s on this Sandman Reading Order?
The Sandman used to be a normal-enough superhero, until author Neil Gaiman got hold of him and completely reimagined the character. Now he’s one of the weirder characters, but many of his stories are among the best DC has to offer.
This timeline attempts to assemble all of the major Sandman stories in an easy-to-follow order. While it might not contain every single story with the character, it does look at the primary comics.
Where to Start?
You can start anywhere you like on this timeline. You can start with the classic stuff, or move on to the more recent comics. When you see the Volumes begin to start over with number 1, that’s often a good place to start.
