I borrowed this graphic novel from the library. This is the story of Morpheus , who has been accidentally captured in by a magician. Morpheus, the Sandman, is an eternal being responsible for sleep and rules over The Dreaming — the place where humans go when they are in an unconscious state. Morpheus was accidentally captured because the magician, Roderick Burgess , was trying to achieve immortality by capturing Death. The helm is in the possession of the demon Choronzon and Morpheus wins it over in a battle of wits, in which he takes on the form of Hope. Dee tricks Morpheus and almost drains all his strength but then shutters the ruby which releases the power that Morpheus needs, restoring him to full strength. Death is a down-to-earth Goth girl.
