Reminiscent of the legendary Canterbury Tales, THE SANDMAN: WORLDS' END is a wonderful potpourri of engrossing tales and masterly storytelling. Improbably caught in a June blizzard, two wayward compatriots stumble upon a mysterious inn and learn that they are in the middle of a "reality storm." Now surrounded by a menagerie of people and creatures from different times and realities, the two stranded travelers are entertained by mesmerizing myths of infamous sea creatures, dreaming cities, ancient kings, astonishing funeral rituals and moralistic hangmen.

Loved the wayfarers from throughout time, myth & imagination converge at mysterious inn during "reality storm".
Artists' style so varied from bubble gum, creepy to steampunk.
Ditto the ambitious ending, if PTSD protagonist really back in his own slightly modified universe or in a parallel universe with small changes.
Definitely not for kids with bigger ideas & concepts other than costumed superheroes that leaves the reader to think.
Highly recommended for adults.

Stories within stories within a story.

I was worried I wasn't going to enjoy it as much because I prefer an overall story arch instead of little compilations of stories, but these was actually pretty good.
