'The Sandman - The Dream Hunters' is one of many graphic novels in the Sandman series. This story takes place at the turn of the 6th century Japan, primarily on remote hillside where a single monk worships the old gods. A whirlwind of magical events focuses in upon the monk, as he is forced to contend with mischief from foxes, badger, and Yin-Yang Masters. Ultimately, its an mythical journey of sacrifice, love, and visions of the dreaming world.(see full book description)
